We wanted to launch a budget end wetsuit but not compromise on quality or flexibility. Introducing the Spectre, as good if not better than suits double the price and more.
Double ( yes double ) taped seams in high stress areas and our exclusive ‘ slippy’ lining for fast removal added to Yamamoto super stretch side panels give you the most flexible and well made suit in its class.
YONDA’s latest baby, the Spectre is an outstanding wetsuit at an even more outstanding price. The Spectre is aimed more towards first timers to triathlon who want their first suit but still want quality as well as affordability yet still keep some of the key elements of the award-winning YONDA Ghost.
Go Further, Go YONDA
Y-stretch side panel – It has been long thought that the shoulder fabric is the most critical part on a wetsuit, however the testing that has been done at YONDA shows the panel on the side of the suit is crucial to shoulder flexibility. This 1.5mm Yamamoto #40 is the most expensive panel on the wetsuit and unlike other brands YONDA makes this as big as possible, from hip, up the rib-cage and under your arm. This allows for the most movement possible in the shoulders, and shows off YONDA’s ability to find new ways to reengineer triathlon wetsuits.
Kick out system - This suit has been designed so you don’t need the use of baby oil or other lubricant. A super smooth fabric on the inside, allows the suit to glide off the athlete lightening quick. Extended testing challenged the suit in a real-life situation whereby the athlete put the wetsuit on, swam 100m, and could take it off all within 2 minutes.

10k Collar - YONDA use a ‘10k collar’ on the neck, this collar has been tested on several long-distance swimmers without causing irritation. This super-supple fabric fits snugly around the athlete and prevents water entering the suits. The tightness can be adjusted easily to personal preference with the simple Velcro tab. Fantastic feedback has been given by a range of athletes from, channel/ultra-swimmers to Olympians.
Y-seam - Historically a lot of wetsuits seams split on the hip of the suit. YONDA has developed a diagonal seam which differs from the conventional horizontal seams. The Y shape is a lot tougher as it is pulled in three directions and off loads the stress in the critical areas of the suit.
Trim Lines - Tailoring your wetsuit leg is becoming quite common. Some individuals like to take up to 5 inches off the suit legs to free their ankles up and allow for a leg kick that is just below the surface of the water. Angus, explains, “if you’re spending £400+ on a wetsuit you shouldn’t have to be hacking away at a suit, but instead there should be a nice ‘trim line’ for the athlete to cut around. You will notice 3 lines on the inside of the leg of every YONDA suit which can be used as a guide to tailor your suit without damaging the stitching.”
