WOMENS 226 SUPPORT TOP 2016 ORCA
If you’re looking for a tank that will improve aerodynamics, naturally keep you cool, and provide maximum comfort and support over long distances.
Orca AquaGlide has been re-engineered as a higher gauge fabric - a tighter knit, for lighter, more breathable comfort and increased durability. Water resistant qualities promote speed through the water, while minimizing water absorption. Featuring spandex inside a polyamide yarn, AquaGlide keeps athletes cool, dry and comfortable.
Orca´s new Vapour Cool fabric uses nano crystals embedded in the fibre to naturally conduct heat away from the body, keeping you cool. The cross-section yarn construction enhances moisture wicking and dries quickly. This highly breathable fabric also contains silver ions that are antibacterial and deodorizing, and anti-allergy, making it ideal for longer distance.
ABOUT ThE ORCA BRAND
Whilst working as a swim coach, and from his first hand experience in competing in triathlon, Scott Unsworth realised that the wetsuits used at the time were completely inadequate for swimming. In 1992 Scott started up a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd, based out of his parent's house in Auckland, New Zealand. He began to develop his "Speedsuits", which featured greater flexibility and buoyancy than other existing wetsuits. The business started with Scott selling his Speedsuits from the back of his car at swim meets and triathlon events. The Speedsuits quickly gained a following amongst athletes and the business started to grow. Scott was taking his first steps towards introducing what would become Orca, to the world. A young New Zealand triathlete named Hamish Carter became one of the first athletes to sign up with the company that is now Orca. Over the next 13 years Hamish Carter went on to become one of the best known triathletes in the world - culminating in a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
145gsm StretchSkn fabric on the upper back panel means faster wicking time, less sweat retention and better aerodynamics on the bike.
Built-in Cool Breath Internal bra fully made of Vapour Cool fabric provides medium support and maximum breathability.
Vapour Cool uses nano-crystal technology to keep the body cool and promote fast wicking on the support top and back panels.
Three rear pockets across the lower back give you plenty of room to store the nutrition you need within easy reach in a place that won’t bounce around.
