RRD launch 2016 Harness Collection
Your choice of harness needs to fit your style of riding, stance, local conditions and the natural shape of your back. Therefore our harness range consists off 3 different shaped harnesses to fit different needs, rather then claiming each of our harnesses do it all for each and everyone.
As an example it’s easy to understand the difference in kite-pull, body position and thus harness requirements between overpowered riding on a twin tip, fun freeriding or (downwind) waveriding The RRD waist harness range comes in 3 different types of fit, suitable for different body shapes and differences in riding style, so there is always one that fits your personal needs best.
Try them out and decide for yourself!
Shift Pro – “Powerful riding and maximum comfort”
The shift pro is worked out further as the choice for riders with a flatter lower back shape for an ergonomic fit when riding with a lot of power. It does its work when the rail is digged in deep and the kite is low. The fiberglass reinforcements inside are positioned to correspond with a low kite angle and lead the pressure to where it’s most comfortable. The convex curved lower edge of the harness (‘Flexcurve’) is more flexible and designed to stay in contact with the rider during a wide variety of tricks. This makes the Shift pro as versatile as a harness can get. Surely it’s finished with the most comfortable spreaderbar-protector, a safetyknife, keypocket and a handles pass system that’s strong enough to lift a small car.
Thrive – “Ergonomic and comfortable fit”
The Thrive harness has more curve in the vertical line and is the choice for users with a more curved lower back by nature or riders that prefer a more upright position, like free-riding and down the line wave riding.
Stark – “Max flex and freedom”
The Stark is a more flexible harness, soft and adaptable with lots of comfortable neoprene.
