Australian sailing clothing specialist, Zhik’s innovative new ‘modular’ ocean racing gear, Isotak X has been nominated for a DAME Award at METS 2017, the important Marine world trade fair in Holland next month.
The all new Zhik Isotak X ocean range is the result of extensive development work with the Dongfeng Race Team and team AkzoNobel, who are currently wearing it in their quest to win the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18.
According to Liz Rushall of Zhik, the breakthrough Isotak® X design developments includes:
• the new Hydrovision™ hood with a completely clear ‘see through’ visor to protect the face and give great all round vision
• the ‘Adaptive™’ hood and collar on the Isotak X Ocean Smock and Drysuit, enabling the modular hood-collar unit to be inter-changed with different balaclavas for different weather conditions
• newly enhanced Reziseal™ system for the neck and cuffs - soft, stretchy, durable and comfortable and fantastic at keeping water out.
