Zhik, the leading innovator in sailing gear, proudly announces the release of the ZhikGrip II Limited Edition Boot & Strap. This exclusive offering celebrates Zhik's 20 years of sailing excellence, with the groundbreaking Zhik Grip II introduced in 2007, just in time for the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

The ZhikGrip II revolutionised hiking technology by introducing a patented system of interlocking durable rubber spikes, providing an adjustable bond between the boot and hiking strap. This unique system allows sailors to connect with the hiking strap from various angles, reducing the stress of holding legs in position under the straps. Importantly, the interlocking mechanism is activated only through upwards pressure, making it as easy as a normal strap for sailors to manoeuvre around the boat.

The ZhikGrip II system delivers two key benefits: reduced muscle fatigue, enabling sailors to hike at their best for longer, and improved energy transfer from the sailor to the boat during dynamic movements. The boot features a fully moulded outer with a robust ankle strap and Zhik's renowned side lacing, ensuring exceptional support to the foot and ankle.

Johnny Rodgers, Zhik Marketing Partnerships and Global Sponsorship Manager said, "Originally gaining momentum across various classes, the ZhikGrip II has become the go-to option for sailors in the ILCA class. Ovington Boats, one of the ILCA builders, has now included the Zhik Grip II strap as a standard feature on new production boats, making it more accessible than ever. This Limited Edition version introduces vibrant colours and branding, providing sailors with a unique and stylish option while maintaining the exceptional performance synonymous with Zhik's products."

Celebrating a Legacy of Champions

The Limited Edition ZhikGrip II Boot & Strap celebrates a winning combination that has helped sailing champions become legends in three consecutive Olympic Games. Gold medal sailors such as Matt Wearn (AUS), Tom Burton (AUS), Tom Slingsby (AUS), Robert Scheidt (BRA), Anne-Marie Rindom (DEN), Marit Bouwmeester (NED), and Lijia Xu (CHN) have trusted the ZhikGrip II to enhance their performance on the water.
