The latest generation Vapour fabric has been refined for an even better fit and comfort.
Orca 226 Kompression Race Suit
Orca's research and development team has worked with the world's leading endurance distance athletes to re-engineer the Orca 226 Kompression Racesuit to set a new benchmark for performance, comfort and durability. Orca's 70 denier Killaskn Kompress fabric is scientifically proven to provide optimum levels of active and graduated compression, and is used in the leg and shoulder areas to help athletes to race further, faster. Panels of the new Tri-Enduro mesh fabric are used across the back for higher levels of breathability and moisture wicking. The latest generation Vapour fabric has been refined for an even better fit and comfort. The 3.5mm Tri-tech chamois gives increased protection on the bike, and comfort on the run. Other endurance distance-specific features include safety elastic pockets, reflective elements for visibility in low light, comfortable, low drag Hydroseal leg hems, and a new internal chest pocket, perfect for nutrition or a music player.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Very good....but
I've used this suit in three races so far this year and I love it from Olympic distance to half Iron man. Even on days when its almost 30'C I haven't felt the heat as much as I thought I would as most of the suit is black. Only downside to the suit is that I've noticed that one of the seams has started to give way around the padding, I used the Orca sizing model on the website but it maybe off a fraction. I wouldn't expect this after three uses.
