ZHIK’S new breathable drysuit for adults and junior sailors

Further to their extensive work with dry smocks and seals for ocean racing, Zhik has launched a new breathable Drysuit for adults and junior sailors. Made from a 3-layer, highly waterproof and highly breathable fabric, it is designed with a racing cut for a full range of movement, enhancing your race performance and all-day comfort.

Hi-visibility upper panels are used for safety, and aids quick recognition out on the water. The high-vis neck and wrist seals, a development of Zhik’s composite neoprene seals, are more comfortable and durable than the latex seals traditionally used on drysuits. The seals were extensively trialled in harsh ocean conditions in the offshore gear for Dongfeng Race Team and team AkzoNobel during the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18.

A light, very flexible waterproof YKK AQUASEAL® front zip keeps you dry and reduces bulk across the front of the suit for easier hiking and on board movement. Internally, all the seams are fully waterproof, and further reinforced on critical seam and high movement areas. Adjustable suspenders (braces) allow customisation for torso length, and there is an internal pocket.

Durable fabric socks are fitted with ankle adjustment tabs for a secure and neat fit, with a generous cargo pocket on the thigh for race accessories. A 1000 denier reinforcement is used on high wear areas, making an overall highly robust Drysuit for frostbite racing and wet weather sailing.

RRP:

Adult Drysuit   £469.95;  €549.95;  US$629.99;  AUS$899.95

Junior Drysuit £379.95;  €499.95;  US$539.99;  AUS$789.95
