The return of the Zhik T2 Trapeze harness - and it's lighter than ever

by Zhik 2 Apr 08:00 BST

Zhik's original award-winning adjustable, nappy-style, T2 Trapeze Harness is making a welcome return for performance sailors.

The new design improvements feature a lighter weight construction, reduces its weight by over 15% and guarantees compliance with the latest World Sailing Racing Rules 2021-24 maximum weight requirements. Available in four sizes, the largest size (XL+) weighs in at just 1.28kg when dry and 1.68kg when wet, well within the maximum 2kg weight limit.

The popular T2 Harness is designed for a close, firm fit to get the best personalised back and pelvic support, enabling the ultimate athletic movement and kinetic connection with your boat. The 2D Velcro® system allows you to adjust the fit over different layers of winter or summer sailing gear and importantly, the integrated spreader bar keeps the hook close to your body for instant reactions from out on the wire. The Velcro adjustment system also makes the harness very quick to remove quickly in an emergency or between back-to-back races for a comfort break.

A reinforced stretch neoprene crotch area gives unparalleled comfort levels. The fast draining outer fabric and internal foam reduces water retention and the Kevlar® reinforced seat reduces wear and abrasion.

Complete with an internal adjustable lumbar support and easily adjusted, padded shoulder straps to provide exceptional, customised lower and upper back support.

Available in Black sizes 0 - 3 (0/XS, 1/S-M, 2/L-XL, 3/XL+)
€199.95; £179.95; US$249.99; AUS$299.95; NZ$349.95
