Laser Sailboat Hiking Straps and Hiking Benches
Choose from standard and weight distributing, wide Laser hiking straps. Some with added grip surfaces added to the underside to engage with the top of your hiking boots. Also, Hiking benches to keep you in shape when off the water.
Laser Hiking Straps
For recreational sailing any of our hiking straps would be a good choice as you will not generally be straight leg hiking for long durations - check out any of our wider straps for comfort. For racing consider a strap with a grip-strip sewn to the underside. These textured rubber-like materials will help prevent your boot from slipping while hiking. The Zhik system actually mates (locks) with the similar material that is located on the top of their hiking boots for even more secure hiking.
Keep your legs in shape off the water with a hiking bench. They simulate hiking on a Laser in all positions (drop or straight leg hiking). Use them at home while you watch TV or read a book. If you attach a short piece of mainsheet sized rope with some doubled up (looped) ¼” shock cord to each front corner, you can even work (pump) your arms while hiking.
