Built by Swimrunners with the express purpose of supporting others competing, the RS1 Swimrun Suit from Orca in now in its third generation - and it's better than ever.
Orca love bringing the latest sportswear innovations to athletes of all levels and ability, and nowhere is that clearer than with the improved version of the RS1 Swimrun Suit. The combination of two types of Yamamoto fabric gives you enormous lightweight freedom both in the water and on your feet, with elasticity in the shoulders to make every stroke count, while the rest of the body features exactly the right fit for light compression to keep fatigue at bay. The lower half also features DuraSkin 2 fabric, proven to be considerably more durable for longer-lasting and abrasion-resisting wear.
Perhaps most impressive here however is the ingenious vest-like construction that goes into the RS1. Not only does it make it easier to transition in and out of the suit, but also allows you to open the zip in a moment for full-blooded ventilation when the road ahead starts to heat up, while the lack of a back zipper allows greater freedom of the water too. Elsewhere, the Swimrun pad used at the heart of the RS1 adds extra buoyancy to ensure you always take the correct position in the water, the pocket system (one large on the back and several within the interior) gives you plenty of storage space for those nutritional items, and its green and black styling is always on point.
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.
