Zhik Deckbeaters



The Zhik DeckBeaters R & D team has finally cracked it! Over twelve months of design and testing has gone into one of Zhik’s greatest products: the Deckbeaters.

Deckbeaters began life when keelboat sailors told Zhik that the existing padded/hiking shorts in the market were uncomfortable, didn’t fit right, too hot and sweaty and inconvenient as you have to wear them to the bar later. So with that in mind, Zhik R & D team enlisted some of the world’s best sailors to help them develop the best sailing short in the market.
Designed to be worn either underneath your normal sailing short or over your suits, Zhik Deckbeaters provide the ultimate in hiking comfort, which also being extremely breathable to keep you cool. The pads have perforated holes in them to aid the breathing process and there is Zhiktex fabric on the bum panels for added durability.

These shorts will become vital pieces of sailing clothing for all keelboat racers, once someone wears them on a boat, the rest of the crew will follow suit. Order Zhik DeckBeaters here.
