The Spirit is a hugely efficient and quality made wetsuit.
We designed a suit that improves your performance and provides an effortless feeling in the water. Known for its unrivalled flexibility and comfort we have engineered our Y-Stretch Panel™ to help send the power from your hips into your arm extension making this suit so efficient.
The Y-Kick System™ helps our suits slide off so fast for a speedy transition.

This hydrophobic fabric sits tight next to the your skin to give you great feel for the water. Full arm neoprene prevents you feeling the catch and creates added resistance in the catch phase The Vector catch panel uses lightweight technical fabric to give you outstanding feel for the water.
To increase hip rotation flexibility even further Yonda has introduced the new VFF system TM. This new panel gives the wearer even more efficiency and enables maximum arm reach and stretch without any force pulling against you. This prevents arm fatigue and reduces heart rate therefore making this the most efficient suit on the market.
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 #40 and #39 cell are used throughout the suit to give the very best quality neoprene available.
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 collar has been tested on many long-distance swimmers without causing irritation. This soft supple fabric fits snugly around the neck giving a good seal and prevents water entering 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.”
