Little story about the logo - The combination of the letters "i" and "k" has double meaning - the torso of a kayaker preparing for a paddle stroke is quite apparent. The hidden meaning of the symbol is the connection of two kayaking families - Hilgert and Kostal.

Zdenek Kostal and Lubos Hilgert were pioneers of canoe slalom in the former Czechoslovakia (Lubos on the right / Zdenek on the left). The two became friends and rivals at the time. It was their offsprings Ivan and Marcela - both competitive paddlers and members of the Czechoslovakian national team who started Hiko in 1990. 

Just in case people ask when you wear it...
