Zhik have introduced a new Face Mask that is weatherproof, washable and comfortable. It is not just another facemask, Zhik's industrial design team has thought this through, like so many of the other ingenious products Zhik prides itself with. Now that COVID-19 restrictions have eased in many countries, and it is safe to go back on the water again, it has proven to be a great product.

Piet Poelmann, CEO of Zhik has tested it himself. "When it gets wet with the spray of the bow, it still feels very comfortable. It is quick drying on the downwind stretch. Best of all, at the end of the day, just hand wash it; and you are ready for another great day on the water."

As well as on the water, it's also suitable on shore, as so many sports and activities require a face mask to be worn, while social distancing during exercise.

The Face Mask is a non-medical grade and made of Polyurethane foam which feels comfortable on the skin and is quick drying. For high activity, the mask features a regulating one-way valve to breathe out easily. In case of an emergency, the mask can be removed quickly with one hand.

Zhik Face Masks are supplied in packs of five and are available from www.zhik.com/featured/zhik-facemask.html

  • US$ 34.99
  • AUS$ 49.95
  • NZ$ 54.95

Bulk users can order bigger quantities with even better pricing. A second model, without the valve, is for everyday use, and will be released soon.
