ION Apex Curve 13 Select Harness Test

‘We like the combined hook so you only need to buy one, the brilliant Double D buckle that guarantees the same fit every time with ease and the supplied kite knife that’s very easy to access’

 


TEST TEAM NOTES:

The first thing I’ve noticed in the last couple of seasons when I receive an ION harness is that they look low profile in the sides and then the shape expands to a much deeper support section behind your spine. As a result there’s always good side to side movement, which is important as this is a harness designed for freeride / freestyle and wave use.

I was using the C_Bar 3.0 which features both a hook and a webbing strap (the latter is used for wave riding). When new the webbing strap is pulled quite short and sits neatly out of the way underneath the hook. On the back of the spreader bar you’ll see some screws that can be undone, either to remove the hook completely if you just want to use the sliding rope, or there are two further screws on the side that can be loosened to extend the rope, or pull it in even tighter.
