$1,300.00

Description

Tested by Team AkzoNobel and Dongfeng Race Team, the OFS900™ range represents the pinnacle of ocean racing gear and features Zhik’s latest patent pending innovations. The OFS900™ range features our multilayer composite membrane fabric proved to be 4X more waterproof durable than the market leading ePTFE ocean fabric. All garments have been engineered to have reduced seams reducing weight, maximising flexibility and increasing durability. Going into the Volvo Ocean Race, we found that ocean gear by and large lacked the ability to adapt to different weather and conditions, meaning that crews would have to carry extra gear, or compromise on the performance of their gear. We found that safety and performance was compromised as sailors experienced inhibited central and peripheral vision from protective hoods and peaks, often resulting in a “letterbox” field of view. Uncomfortable, sticky and tight latex seals that wear down too quickly. Ocean gear needed to be safer, perform better, and be more versatile and more durable.
