ZHIK POWERPADS - LIGHTWEIGHT CARBON FIBRE HIKING PAD

Zhik PowerPads are back with a new design and with carbon fibre pads making them more lightweight.

In collaboration with carbon fibre experts Carbitex, a first-of-its-kind lightweight carbon fibre hiking pad has been developed to mould to the sailors leg utilising asymmetric flex profiles. Paired with this is the new seamless 3D knitted PowerPads compression sleeve, focussing on comfort, muscle performance and breathability. The powerful combination of these two elements creates a bold new world-first medal winner.

The Carbon fibre pad offers significant weight savings over traditional hiking pads meaning quicker movements around the boat. The dynamic stiffness of the pads give the ultimate in connectivity to the boat, with the asymmetrical flexibility ensure the pads remain contoured to your legs even when hiking.
