After extensive research and development with the British Sailing Team our FlexLite Alumin Hikers 3.0 have proven themselves to be amongst the best hikers around. The unique hiking batten construction delivers exceptional comfort and performance gains that enable sailors to push harder and go faster.
At Suntouched we have been lucky enough to have been testing these hikers since Summer 2021 and have found them to be perfect in all conditions. They are warm in the winter (with the appropriate base layers) and comfortable in the summer. We rate them as some of the best all round hikers on the market and will have a pair or two in our kit bags for future regattas.
