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. 

In Ireland, Zhik is available from leading chandleries including Viking Marine and CH Marine

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
