Henri Lloyd, Wild Oats XI - Shockwave by Henri Lloyd, leading the way in the new generation of unlined garments, hands the sailor the controls to their own personal climate system.

Wild Oats XI has done it again … Always striving to align with the best in the industry, the team of Wild Oats XI has just announced that they will continue their alliance with Henri Lloyd until 2012. It has already been a long and fruitful partnership. From the day they broke the race record in their Rolex Sydney-to-Hobart debut in 2005 to their latest fifth record-breaking triumph, Henri Lloyd has been right beside the crew, arming them with that winning edge.

And 2011 has started in similar fashion. Skipper Mark Richards and the crew blitzed the 30th Pittwater-to-Coffs Harbour race in style, the first in the country to be decked out in Henri Lloyd’s brand new Shockwave offshore gear complete with Deck Armour. 'I loved the new Salopette and wore it for six days straight!' shared Wild Oats XI’s very own Troy Tindell.

Hitting stores in 2011, Shockwave is the world's only fully integrated and modular system of protective foul weather clothing for Offshore to Round the Cans racing. It consists of one system that lets you choose and modify the level of performance you require from the elements and impact protection. At the core of this ‘one-stop shop’ to foul weather clothing is the revolutionary and integrated modular Deck Armour Impact Protection System (IPS) and 3D waterproof breathable fabric technologies for improved comfort.

It is 100% windproof and waterproof, and ergonomically designed. It boasts extreme breathability and optivision hood panels for full peripheral vision, as well as an optivision watch panel. On top of this, it is deck armour compatible.

The Wild Oats XI crew also enjoy the protection of Henri Lloyd’s Deck Armour. Featuring hydrophobic and long-duration pressure fabric, it is the perfect companion to Shockwave Salopettes, Hi-Fits, Jackets and Smocks. It moulds around the body providing a customised fit, which allows the wearer to move freely. But what makes it stand out from the rest is its impact protection technology that absorbs impact energy and reduces the forces transmitted through the body. Keep an eye out for Deck Armour in March this year.

For that brief window of sunshine, the Wild Oats XI crew led the pack out of Sydney Harbour in Henri Lloyd’s Fast Dri Pique Polo. Apart from its stylish cut, the crew chooses to wear the Pique Polo for its high wicking capabilities, high UVF sun protection, smell-reducing silver ion technology and easy care fabric. It is available in stores now, along with Henri Lloyd Fast Dri Caps and the latest Henri Lloyd marine deck runners.

Buoyed by their successful start to 2011, the team of Wild Oats XI are determined as ever to maintain their winning ways and forge ahead with Henri Lloyd by their side.

Henri Lloyd is the world’s premier technical marine garment brand, having established over the last five decades a formidable global reputation for innovative design and quality in sailing clothing. They are at the forefront of sailing, from the high performance super maxi’s such as Australia’s Wild Oats X and XI and Britain’s America’s Cup Teams, Team Origin to champion sailors such as Ben Ainslie CBE, Shirley Robertson OBE and yachting legends such as Sir Robin Knox.
