  • 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.

    Zhik PowerPads Key Features

    • High stretch 3D knitted compression sleeve aids in muscle recovery and blood flow when hiking hard
    • Ultra light carbon fibre hiking pads (using Carbitex technology) are asymmetrically flexible. Pads tightly conform to the leg and provide complete rigidity against the loads of hiking
    • Low profile seamless sleeve design
    • Additional EVA pads give a customisable height allowing adjustability to the conditions
    • Air-permeable material allows the sleeve to breathe and is therefore cooler under the outer garment

Zhik power pads

I bought these for my son who sails the laser 4.7. His last pads had virtually disintegrated attached to the shorts from overuse. He was attracted to these as he loves his Zhik 360 boots and felt they would be well worth the investment performance wise.
We weren’t so sure of the fit as they had to be comfortable around his leg. He loved the quality and feel of them and was happy with the medium as he wears a medium wetsuit. He sailed club racing in them and can’t wait for this weekend to try them out at a bigger event.

Zhik Carbon Fibre Hiking Pads

Excellent service. Fast delivery and a great price for an elusive item that I was struggling to get hold of! These pads are definitely thinner than the ‘normal’ PowerPads and I think they will be much easier to use since they don’t need Velcro tightening, they just slide on!

Zhik smashes it again........ Just give them your money

These pads fit... they don't slide around. I get a lot of confidence from them. I feel very connected to the boat.
I can just sit out and concentrate on boat speed.
I've worn them twice now and they just feel right
