WIN a signed Alex Thomson Zhik Aroshell Smock

by Zhik 16 Nov 2020 02:54 PST

With Alex Thomson embarking on the Vendée Globe 2020 in the radical HUGO BOSS, his 5th shot at the world's toughest sporting challenge, you have the chance to WIN a one-of-a-kind Zhik Aroshell Smock, autographed by Alex.

Alex is wearing a bespoke, one-off pink Aroshell Smock, which matches the fluorescent pink onboard his HUGO BOSS IMOCA 60. The Aroshell Smock is a light weight, breathable top made from a highly waterproof-durable, stretchy fabric giving unrestricted agility and movement:

  • suits wide range of temperature and humidity differences
  • ideal for transitioning from deck to cockpit with high breathability
  • developed with 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race teams for intense inshore racing
  • increase protection with Zhik's Adaptable Ocean Hood & collar
  • comfortable, soft, low chafe neck and wrist seals
Sailing around the world, heading offshore or racing around the cans, the Aroshell Smock adds new levels of flexibility to your sailing gear.

    "We certainly hope that, with the cockpit design onboard the new HUGO BOSS, I'll be dryer, warmer and more comfortable during this Vendée Globe. Those design choices presented some new challenges when it came to technical clothing. With the help of the team at Zhik, we've been able to select a range of technical gear that should be comfortable, breathable and durable - all of which is going to be so important over such a long period at sea!"

    Alex Thomson, skipper HUGO BOSS, Vendée Globe 2020


Best wishes through the race Alex, from the Zhik team.
