Zhik was founded before the Athens Olympics when it was noticed that the sailing apparel markets could do with a spark of innovation. There was clearly scope to bring in technically proficient gear to help athletes win gold. Since then, Zhik has not only achieved this, but combined it with a fresh outlook in styling. Zhik now sells a large range of products. Top sailors choose Zhik gear to win world championships, and demand it for their OIympic campaigns. The Zhik brand has a very strong presence among performance sailing athletes and top yachtmen.
After success in the dinghy boats, Zhik set about designing some brilliant yachting gear. Zhik Isotak™ and AroShell™ wet weather gear is rapidly becoming a new choice for racing sports boats, and is now extending to ranges suitable for offshore yachting.
