WOMENS SKIFF SUIT
MicroFleece is proven in a wide range of air temperatures, with superstretch flexibility combined with the ZhikTex durability you need for performance racing. Worn by Olympic and world champions, this material is lightweight, yet provides the equivalent warmth to a traditional 2.5mm Neoprene. In the cooler airs you can feel the MicroFleece thermal layer take effect, yet in conditions where the air is hot, the thinner construction promotes the waterâ€™s cooling effect.

QUAD LAYER NEOPRENE. WEATHER, INSULATION, REFLECTIVE, THERMAL MENS SKIFF
Superwarm is designed for flexible racing in cold water conditions. A quad layer system with hydrophobic outer nylon, superstretch insulation, internal reflective and fleece thermal layers means more warmth. Combine the SuperWarm skiff suit, top, and socks for the coldest days.

SPANDEX LAYER NEOPRENE Stay cooler and lighter. Breathable abrasive resistant ZhikTex provides durability and padding at high wearing points. Tough lightweight spandex keeps you cool and provides sun protection. Zhik R&D originally developed the Hybrid gear to meet the requirements of the Olympic teams for Qingdao 2008. You can now choose the same innovations for hot summer sailing.
ESSENTIAL TECH GEAR
TOPS RANGE Programmed to work with Zhik wetsuits, these four tops should be all you need in your kit bag. Wear the superwarm in very cold conditions and the Spandex on the hottest days. Then combine the reflective Titanium waterproof shell with the Hydrophobic top to build a lightweight, flexible and toasty thermal system for the most common sailing conditions.

HIKERS REINVENTED Get into the hiking system preferred by the Olympic champions. Developed with the Zhik team, Powerpads give you more comfort and control so that you can hike harder for longer. Pull the pads onto your thighs and wear a Zhik suit over the top. No more stupid clunky old neoprene with fibreglass sewn into it.
PADDED COMFORT HIKE HARDER Deckbeaters do exactly as the name suggests. Take the edge off the deck and allow you to hike harder for longer. Yacht and dinghy compatible. They can be worn underneath your shorts or over your wet gear. Spandex with 7mm neoprene padding specifically contoured and perforated to drain and breathe.
MADE FOR WATER While originally designed for grip and performance on deck, this shoe also has street cred. A complete re-think for technical amphibious footwear, the ZKG can do any marine activity. The perforated neoprene upper breathes, drains and dries fast while the custom high grip sole keeps you connected when itâ€™s wet. Lightweight and flexible, ZKGâ€™s give you a barefoot feeling while providing the right amount of cushioning and support. Now available in a range of colours. Antibacterial Inner Fabric Integrated Tongue Perforated Neoprene Synthetic Nubuck Upper High Grip Rubber Sole
