T3 Trapeze Harness sets you free in seconds with a new ultra quick release system

Safety is paramount in sailing and is always a key focal point in Zhik product design. With the launch of the latest evolution of the T3 Harness, Zhik have built in a quick release velcro ripcord system which, when the shoulder buckle is also unclicked, releases the user from the harness in mere seconds. This, combined with additional optional impact protection and a perforated construction for more airflow and faster drainage, gives sailors a leading performance harness with enhanced safety credentials.

Powerpads III now with adjustable sizing for a superior fit

Zhik have taken their popular hiking Powerpads and improved the design and fit with adjustable Velcro tabs for that superior fit and to help those needing in-between sizes. The improved design also allows for a wider range of movement and fits under any wetsuit for ultimate hiking protection.

These products are now available online at, through the Zhik Auckland Showroom (41 Station Road, Penrose). They will be available at selected resellers around the country around the middle of April.
