Zhik release PowerPads II for improved hiking comfort

Zhik’s hiking PowerPads II are designed to be worn either inside a wetsuit or under waterproofs to fit around your thighs.

The fully enclosed neoprene sleeve design ensures there is no external pad that can be easily snagged or ripped off. The new shape of PowerPads II is also more streamlined to reduce bulk.  The preshaped pads, supported with internal battens, flex to leg shape, improving comfort.  The pads are also fitted to support a wider range of movement and hiking positions.

The ZiBand silicone banding on the inside prevents PowerPads moving around the leg, with an option of adding additional EVA padding to create some extra height off the side decks. The high wear areas are reinforced for added durability.

Olympic gold medallist Paul Goodison says, “Zhik’s new PowerPads are another step forward in comfort, the contoured sides keep the pads in place making hiking harder even easier!”

PowerPads II are available in six sizes from Junior sizes to XXXL.
