The Elite harness offers the ultimate in performance and control through its full carbon construction. The lightest and stiffest harness in the range, it offers the pinnacle of support and revolutionary technology that Ride Engine harnesses have brought to kiteboarding in a premium build and finish. It's precision fitted armour shell not only locks the harness in place,
but spreads the load across its rigidly moulded shell to ensure that the harness won't deform, compress or make riding uncomfortable. Coming complete with a spreader bar, Ride Engine offer a choice of a fixed hook or sliding system to suit the needs of all freeride, wave or freestyle riders.
Fabric & Construction
- Full carbon construction is lightweight, stiff and strong, offering a premium level of feel and comfort.
- Its ‘armour shell’ design distributes load evenly across its rigid design to completely eliminate deforming, buckling or pinching.
- Modelled from hundreds of custom body moulds, its precision fit shell contours the riders back for a precision ergonomic fit.
- The ‘lumber lock’ shape locks the harness in place and minimalises sliding up and unwanted twisting.
- Due to its extra level of support, the Ride Engine harness has been scaled down to decrease weight and bulk, increasing mobility.
- The Speed-loop closure system is quick, durable and lightweight, offering a simple and problem free solution.
- Fusion foam is lined around the entire interior of the harness to aid hold and comfort by conforming to the riders body shape.
Complementing the harness, Ride Engine offer a series of spreader bar options to suit individual riders needs:
- The metal hook is a standard attachment system, proven suitable for all styles of hooked and unhooked riding.
- The slider system has been developed to increase rider mobility by allowing the chicken loop to slide from hip-to-hip as the rider twists whilst wave or hooked in freeriding.
- A development of the metal slider, shaped from carbon fibre, this model is an ultra weight design which offers maximum mobility with high-end performance.
