Ride Engine V7 Elite Kiteboarding Harness
The benchmark in carbon-fiber hard-shell harnesses, the Elite Carbon continued to lead the way - this year 25% less weight. We rethought every component on the Elite Carbon and intelligently pulled weight by using thinner, leaner materials whenever possible - all without sacrificing durability and performance. Equipped with Unity Ladder - Lock Straps so it's ready to integrate without Unity Spreader Bar, the Elite Carbon is still constructed using top-shelf 12k carbon fiber, which ensures a durable, strong Armor Shell frame in a lightweight, high-performance package. When combined without Fusion Memory Foam and proprietary Shell Skin technology with Lumbar Lock shaping, the Elite Carbon provides the ultimate in connection, feel and support.
*Harness does not include Spreader Bar.
- 12k Carbon Armor Shell: Built with 12k carbon fiber, the Armor Shell of our Elite Carbon is light, strong, and ergonomically contoured - as well as our stiffest. The Armor shell also allows the load to be distributed seamlessly from the spreader bar to the shell, preventing the harness from buckling or pinching.
- Unity Spreader Bar Compatible: Our "set it and forget it" spreader bar system that creates a solid, stable connection, the Unity Spreader Bar has an ingenious design utilizing custom-molded ladder-lock straps, thereby eliminating the use of traditional webbing and providing an unrivaled locked-in fit.
- Lightweight: 25% lighter, on average, without any reduction in performance or durability.
- Lumbar Lock: A scientifically supported data shape from more than 100 custom molds, the Lumbar lock conforms and cradles your lumbar, back and sides to lock the harness securely in place. These enhanced ergonomics ensure that you get the maximum support out of your harness - no more harness sliding side-to-side or riding up.
- Shell Skin: Shell Skin technology provides UV resistance, impact strength, abrasion, and tear resistance. Not only does the Shell skin provide added durability to extend the life of your harness, it also improves overall fit and function.
- Low-Profile Design: Low-profile framework contributes to a perfect fit and maximum mobility while keeping the harness locked in place and eliminating pressure points.
- Handle-pass, front-mounted leash attachments: For freestyle riders, the harness comes with a handle-pass-leash mount around the back (which is easy to remove for windsurfing). It also has two front-mounted leash attachment points for use when a short leash is utilized.
- Fusion Memory Foam: Super soft, ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
- Full Neoprene Wrap: Minimal-seam construction of a full-neoprene wrap conforms to the body, creating a rash-free interface.
- Internal Waist-Belt Strap: An internal, single closure- waist-belt strap provides a secure fit and easy entry and adjustment.
- Hook-Knife Pocket: Easy access hook-knife pocket location.
