New Zhik Wetsuits - Zhik V and Zhik X

Exciting news, Zhik have a whole new wetsuit range coming in 2018!

You may have wondered why we're selling off the Zhik Microfleece Wetsuits and Titanium Tops at a great price on our Zhik Clearance Page. Well this is why, new wetsuits and an excellent new concept making the wetsuits accessible to all sailors.

Dinghy Rope will be one of the first companies to have the new wetsuits in stock and they'll all be on show at the RYA Dinghy Show in March 2018. Come and see us and we'll talk you through the products.

To date Zhik have been all about pushing the boundaries of wetsuit technology and creating a fantastic product for sailors. They've always tested their products with the best sailors in the World and have gathered feedback along the way to create some of the best sailing kit out there.

Zhik will continue to push the boundaries and possibilities but what they are also doing in 2018 is introducing two different levels to their wetsuits. Meet the X and V range.

Zhik X Wetsuits

Zhik X wetsuits will be available in Superwarm and Microfleece and are the premium wetsuit. The X range will be very similar to the current Superwarm and Microfleece range products but with design improvements built in.

The X range will be the top range designed towards top end sailors who are out on the water all of the time. 

Zhik X wetsuits will come in the following forms:

  • Superwarm Top
  • Superwarm Skiff Suit
  • Microfleece Skiff Suit
  • Microfleece Wetsuit Top
  • Microfleece Wetsuit Trousers

All of these wetsuits will be available in Mens and Ladies cuts.

New Features of the Superwarm X

  • Integrated drainage
  • External ZiBand leg openings
  • Low profile leg pocket with secure cord

New Features of the Microfleece X

  • Integrated drainage
  • External ZiBand leg openings
  • Low profile leg pocket with secure cord
  • Fast-drying hydrobase lining on the chest and back

Zhik V Wetsuits

The V wetsuit range has been introduced by Zhik to target the club sailor. I am sure in the past some of you have seen the Zhik Superwarm wetsuits and have heard great things, but get to the price tag and the WOW kicks in. We've seen customers faces, they've been hooked into the product until the price tag is shown. We all have a budget and for many people the 2017 Microfleece and Superwarm ranges have been out of the budget.

Zhiks V range will solve this problem, it brings great products at very friendly prices.

Zhik V wetsuits will come in the following forms:

  • Superwarm Top
  • Superwarm Skiff Suit
  • Superwarm Steamer
  • Microfleece Skiff Suit
  • Microfleece Wetsuit Top
  • Microfleece Wetsuit Trousers
  • Microfleece Wetsuit Shorts

Superwarm V Features

  • Targetted super stretch panelling
  • Better abraision with an improved Zhiktex II backside and knees
  • Inbuilt knee pads
  • Glued, blind stitched and taped construction

Microfleece V Features

  • Targetted super stretch panelling

  • Superwarm Gloves
  • Glove Range (short and long finger)
  • New Jackets

As and when the items come into stock we'll be talking you through the key features.

Please note, the wetsuits are being made over the next few months. The specifications and product look and feel may change between now and the final versions.
