Zhik Superwarm

Over the next few months the water is going to be getting colder and you’re going to be searching for some warmer sailing clothing.

For the past few years the Zhik Superwarm wetsuit range has been leading the way using super stretch neoprene and other material technologies to keep sailors warm throughout the cold European winter. With unique and well designed features lots of sailors are seeing the benefit of Zhik Superwarm wetsuits and tops.

Even if you are only sailing a traditional sailing season until around the end of October we would certainly recommend investing in some Superwarm wetsuit kit. It will also be a massive benefit when you start sailing again in March too.

The Zhik Superwarm wetsuit range is currently available in a few different variations:

  • Superwarm Steamer
  • Superwarm skiff suit long john
  • Superwarm top
  • Superwarm socks
  • Superwarm head band
  • Superwarm Robert Schiedt Hikers (hiking pads integrated into a Superwarm wetsuit, designed and developed by Laser and Star sailor Robert Schiedt)

You heard it here first but there are also Superwarm wetsuit gloves coming in 2018, we’ve seen the samples and they are fantastic – come and see us at the Dinghy Show to buy a pair.

View the full range of Zhik Superwarm products on our website.

The important thing to note is that the Zhik Superwarm wetsuits and accessories are not only for sailors, in fact, we’ve sold loads of the steamers to kite surfers, surfers and body boarders. Depending on your type of watersport you may choose a different product to purchase.

By far the most popular product is the Superwarm skiff suit. Speaking to customers they like the flexibility of being able to keep their body warm, the water out, and being able to adjust the type of top based on conditions. If it’s blowing and really cold you’ll add a Superwarm top, if it’s warmer you might like a thinner top, something like an Orspan or Titanium top.

The steamer will keep all of the heat in and generally keep you a bit warmer as there is no space for the cold air or water to get in. This also has the benefit of being thinner around your stomach area compared to a top and skiff suit together.
