Spinlock's new ‘Zero' is a low-bulk 50N flotation vest designed specifically for the performance user. Its shape and supple construction make it suited for the Sportsboat sector.
Spinlock Development Director Chris Hill describes how Spinlock took a completely fresh look at how sports sailors interact physically with boat and gear under race conditions. “Research revealed that present flotation wear has become over – restrictive for high-agility competitive keelboat racing. Zero's low bulk, dynamic element construction and high-stretch panelling overcome the problem, by giving full articulation and unrestricted upper body movement”.
“It showed also that most flotation wear can block the drying and cooling effect of base layers and breathable spray tops.
By using a combination of open mesh panels and a vented back, Zero effectively becomes the
final layer of the breathable system. This integral ventilation is another real advantage in intensive racing”.
