5 of the Most Popular Products of 2021

Ever wondered what others are buying for their sailing? Here's a summary of 5 items that were very popular in 2021. You can also take a look at our most popular items.

Zhik 270 Boots

The Zhik 270 Boots are the most versatile and popular boots we sell. The boots are designed to be thick enough for use in the winter and have the great support and grip you need for all types of sailing. The 270 boots are a big evolution from the previous 260 boots with more grip and support without extra bulk.

A new lacing enclosure on the outside of the boot increases comfort and support to the inside of your foot. Updated grip design, support and comfort allow this boot to still be one of the best on the market even 2 years on from their release.

Key Features:

  • More grip and optimised rubber compound
  • New quick-lock lacing system (no more laces coming undone)
  • New ankle strap that is less bulky yet still supportive

Top tip: Zhik sizing can come up small this is due to the moulded sole for a close, comfortable and secure fit. Please pay attention to the size chart and detail we provide.

Push Button Quick Release Pin 

This Quick Release Push Button Pin for the Laser Harken Kicker is one of our top-selling laser parts. This item is one that has been used and tested by Laser 4.7 National Champion Jack Graham-Troll for a number of years now. The pin has stood the test of time on the water on Standard, Radial and 4.7 rigs without issue.

This pin is great for use all year round helps you speed up the rigging process and eliminates the need for split rings that can be difficult to get undone before and after a busy day sailing. The push pin also has a handy loop to which you can tie the pin to your mast so you don't lose it between sailing sessions. 

This pin has been tested on the Harken XD kicker, we have an alternative that is for the Allen XD kicker.

 

 

Little Hawk Little MK2 Wind Indicator

The Hawk Mk2 is a wind indicator designed for small racing dinghies that gives you an accurate reference on where the wind is coming from.

It mounts to the mast with a plastic clip and elastic so it can be taken on and off easily. The elastic tie allows a snug fit on most masts from RS Tera's to Laser masts and some larger single-handed boats. The elastic tie also has some flex so if you knock the wind indicator to can flex rather than break.

The Little Hawk is one of our most popular wind indicators but we do also offer other hawks for the masthead and some catamarans.

Zhik P3 PFD

The P3 PFD is one of the most popular Zhik products we sell along with the 270 boots. This PFD is available in a range of colours and sizes. It is designed for dingh, keelboat sailing and general on the water sports with a generously sized pocket for snacks and spares. With a highly adjustable waist strap to get the best fit for you. Non-slip lining on the inside stops the PFD from riding up when sailing and when in the water.

This PFD has been a very popular product since its introduction and the updated design in 2020 has made it even better with ISO certification and some nice design tweaks.
