We wanted to provide a budget end wetsuit but not compromise on quality or flexibility. The All new Spectre is as good as if better than suits double the price!
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 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 series
Y-stretch side panel ™
To increase hip rotation flexibility even further Yonda has introduced the Y-Stretch side panel™ (using state of the art 59:59™). This unique feature panel allows you to reach and stretch without any force pulling against you. This prevents shoulder and arm fatigue and reduces heart rate therefore making this the most efficient suit on the market in its class.
Yamamoto is the world leader in wetsuit neoprene and prides itself on quality and innovation. Renowned for superior comfort, suppleness and flexibility Super Composite Skin (SCS) is the benchmark for coating the smooth skin neoprene in the fastest wetsuits. SCS reduces friction and improves speed through the water. Yamamoto SCS is used throughout the suit to give the very best quality neoprene available.
Y-Kick system ™
This suit has been designed so you don’t need to use baby oil or other lubricant. Our unique smooth lining allows the suit to glide off the legs lightening fast. See it in action where we challenged the suit in a real-life situation asking our athlete to put the wetsuit on, swam 100m, and take it off all within 2 minutes! Click the link for video
YONDA use a ‘10k collar’ on the neck, this new single layer collar has been tested by many long-distance swimmers without causing irritation. This soft supple fabric fits snugly around the neck giving a good seal and prevents water ingress to the suit. The tightness can be adjusted easily to personal preference with the simple Velcro tab.
All our suits have a reserve style zip. Research has shown that using this mechanism is the most popular where the athlete zips from the top down. Its means other athletes can’t pull your zipper down during the swim, and the lanyard is close to your hands, so easy to access. Simply pull the lanyard up and when it reaches the top the Velcro tab opens with little effort
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.
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.”
