Zhik launches active wear for bikers, runners and watersporters

Zhik has launched new relaxed fit, XWR Long and Short Sleeve Tees, made from a water repellent, hydrophobic fabric that sheds water.

The soft, smooth XWR fabric prevents wind and water chill. Being breathable and light to wear, it’s suitable for a variety of high-performance activities and exercise, both on and off the water.

Treated with UPF50+, the shirts give protection from the sun (from £55).

In addition, Zhik‘s new portable Lightweight Packable Jacket is for walkers, cyclers and boaters. The packable waterproof, breathable jacket comes with a hood and zipped front pockets.

The lightweight shell is made from a waterproof, wind resistant and breathable 2.5 layer fabric, which has a DWR coating to shed water droplets. All the seams are fully taped, and the tapered sleeves and sports cut is designed for active use. The close-fitting, gusseted hood design gives excellent protection from the wind, rain and spray. It features discreet reflective detailing so wearers can be seen in bad light, whether on the road or on board (from £109.95).

For after exercise, Zhik’s new Sweat Shirt and Hoodie are made from a plush, soft, 320 gsm premium cotton. Styled with a relaxed fit (which we all need after lockdown), the tops are ideal for relaxing and recovery after intense exercise (from £75).

Other water repellent garments in the range include chino styled Marine Shorts, said to feel like a pair of ‘boardies’ (board shorts). Made from a lightweight stretchy, quick drying and water repellent material, these multi-functional shorts feature belt loops and fly zip, and they have mesh pockets for holding essentials (from £75).
