They will keep you hiking harder, for longer.

Zhik have taken their popular Powerpad® hiking pads and improved the design, with adjustable Velcro tabs enabling a superior fit. With sailors needing to wear different layers for the complete range of weather conditions, the enhanced Powerpad 3 enables you to customise the fit. This is crucial for more effective hiking power and improved comfort around the race course.

The hiking pads are made from a durable neoprene with reinforced in high wear areas to protect from abrasion. They are worn as a slim fitting, 4-batten pad that flexes to conform to your thigh shape. Powerpad 3 are supplied with an optional EVA pad, that can be inserted for extra body-height off the decks. This can help increase your leverage, as well as create your own bespoke, optimised hiking position for different types of boats and side deck design.

Designed to be worn under or over under any Zhik or other wetsuit, or over leggings inside the Drysuit, the improved design also allows for a wider range of movement.

RRP:

  • GBP £89.95
See Zhik Powerpads 3 on the Sailing Chandlery and Pinnell & Bax stands, along with the new range of Dinghy Boots, new junior wetsuits and steamers and the Award Winning T3 Trapeze Harness.
