The next generation of the best selling Zhik Power Pad system is here. In collaboration with carbon fiber experts Carbitex, Zhik has developed a first-of-its-kind lightweight carbon fiber hiking pad that moulds to the users leg utilizing asymmetric flex profiles. Paired with this is the new seamless 3D knitted PowerPad compression sleeve, focusing on comfort, muscle performance and breathability. The powerful combination of these two elements creates a bold new world-first medal winner. Power Pads are designed to be worn under your wetsuit, spandex pants, shorts, or other outer layer, providing the support you need when hiking hard in a dinghy.
Carbon Fiber Pad Technology
The Carbon fiber pad offers significant weight savings over traditional hiker 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.
3D Knitted Sleeve
The 3D knitted sleeve gives further weight reductions to more traditional hiker sleeves. The seamless and compressive sleeve holds the hiking pad tightly in place. Made from an air-permeable knit, allowing air to transmit through the sleeve making it cooler to wear. The seamless design is low irritant and the compressive nature can assist in muscle fatigue.
