The Aesir Thermal is the wetsuit with the most thermal insulation of Orca's Swimrun range. It incorporates the lightweight Light Thermal lining for better heat retention, as well as its construction with a front zipper for more comfortable running and swimming. The 40 + technology provides more flexibility, without sacrificing durability, thanks to the outer fabric of the legs.
With the combination of 4 mm-thick Yamamoto neoprene and Light Thermal inner lining, you can enjoy even the coldest swimrun races. These technologies enhance the thermal insulation of the suit without sacrificing elasticity or the light weight you need to face your adventures.
Despite being somewhat less elastic than wetsuits in the Flex range due to its high level of thermal insulation, the optimal combination of materials in this wetsuit will provide you with maximum performance.
The DuraSkin 2 outer fabric in the lower torso protects the suit from any abrasions caused by accessories or obstacles encountered during your swimrun races, increasing the durability of your wetsuit.
A 15x12 cm back pocket is incorporated that allows you to store the basic safety equipment needed for training and competitions.
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. Orca recommends washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after each use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards. Once clean, make sure prevent it from holding onto too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage the materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being stretched for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance. The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped over a hanger from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any kind of tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders (Apex Flex or Apex Flow), it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
Recommendations for use
1) If your suit has Velcro, avoid contact between the Velcro and the inner lining of the wetsuit, as it will damage the fibers in the material. Keep the Velcro covered with the provided fabric patch or make sure that the Velcro is closed, so that the rough part of the Velcro does not damage the inside of your suit.
2) For all suits, especially those made with neoprene, be careful not to damage the neoprene material with your nails when putting on or taking off the suit, as this type of damage is not covered by Orca's warranty policy.
3) Triathlon and open water suits have been designed specifically for swimming. Orca cannot guarantee correct functioning of the wetsuits for other activities. Any damage to the wetsuit resulting from use in activities other than swimming is not covered by the Orca warranty policy.
4) Avoid leaning on or coming into contact with any surfaces (especially rough ones) while wearing your wetsuit.
