Zhik has collaborated with Carbitex® in a unique kind lightweight carbon fibre hiking pad.

Paired with this is the new seamless 3D knitted PowerPads® compression sleeve, focusing on comfort, muscle performance and breathability. The powerful combination of these two elements creates a bold new world-first medal winner.

The Carbon fibre pad offers significant weight savings over traditional hiker pads, meaning quicker movements around the boat.

The dynamic stiffness of the pads gives the ultimate in connectivity to the boat, with the asymmetrical flexibility ensure the pads remain contoured to your legs even when hiking.

The 3D knitted sleeve gives further weight reductions to more traditional hiker sleeves.


The seamless and compressive sleeve holds the hiking pad tightly in place. Made from an air-permeable knit, allowing air to transmit through the sleeve making it cooler to wear.

The seamless design is low irritant, and the compressive nature can assist in muscle fatigue.

The Carbon fibre construction allows us to make a truly low profile hiking pad like never before, while maintaining the strength and flexibility required for hiking in all conditions. RRP $219.95.
