We are super excited to say our new Avlare® gear has taken out top prize in the clothing category at this year’s METS Dame Awards! What an honour!

Zhik’s research and development manager, Tom Hussey says, ‘We are so happy to receive this award, it’s a real honor.  Its great that Avlare has been recognized at the METS this year and for us this is just the beginning.  The exciting thing for us at Zhik is that this is the just start of the range  and we hope to bring to more and more Zhik products to the market using the incredible Avlare technology in the future. The water repellence of Avlare is so advanced that we believe it will open up a host of new opportunities in functional water apparel.

Avlare is a revolutionary fabric technology incorporated into a new range of Zhik performance water sports apparel. Tested by Zhik’s international team of elite sailing and paddling athletes, Avlare is destined to change the way we think about what we wear across many water sports, including dinghy sailing, yachting, kayaking, stand-up paddling, kite surfing, and more.
