The Zhik Power Pads are a unique, stand alone hiking system designed to provide support, comfort, and flexibility. Two sleeves that slide onto your thigh, with pockets in the back for the fiberglass batten pads. Can be worn under board shorts, spandex, neoprene, or a skiff suit. The Power Pads 2 are updated to be even more streamlined, include optional extra height padding, and feature new technology to prevent slippage. Please note: Power Pads are designed to fit snugly on your thigh, so much so that they often feel uncomfortable off the water. If your pads are loose on land, they won't work well under load on the water. Please consult the size chart to determine the correct numerical Power Pad size.

Also comes with optional extra height padding.

Zhik Power Pads are a unique, stand alone hiking system designed to provide outstanding hiking support, comfort, and flexibility in fit. The Power Pad system is based on two low profile sleeves which slide onto your thigh. The back of each sleeve has a pocket for a fiberglass batten pad which provides stiffness and support.

Start with a set of Power Pads for consistent hiking power, and layer up over them based on the conditions.

Best Hiking PadsReview by caden s
The Zhik Powerpads 2 are the only hiking pads on the market I would use. I have experimented with other pads but always come back to these. They are adjustable unlike other pads which I really like. There are two suggestions I do make if used. One should take out the extra height padding, it is unnecessary. Also, one should order them a size smaller than suggested for they should fit snuggly.
