Get ready to sink into the most comfortable harness ever created. The 2016 ION Apex for kiteboarding, features new technology and innovation to further enhance its performance. This harness is loaded with great features. The new Wire_Tec disperses direct pressure points, while the X-Spine has been reworked to complement its overall function seamlessly. Memory foam creates a perfect ergonomic fit by adapting to the shape of the riders body. 




Basically Wire_Tec is a brand new system, developed by ION: A specific number of cords running through the harness body with a specified space between each of them.
This system is to evenly distribute the forces, which ‘arise’ at the hook.

What is the purpose of it within your harnesses?
Compared to conventional harness systems, the Wire_Tec system provides an even load distribution of the forces coming from the kite via the buckles directly into the cords. These cords are set at equal intervals over the entire harness body. Like this the forces are spread over the entire back.

The cords are not sewn to the sides, so that the system is able to compensate the forces, which occur both vertically and horizontally. Therefore Wire_Tec offers the possibility to compensate punctual pressure points by distributing the load evenly across the back.

For conventional harness systems the buckles (to attach the straps) are normally fixed to the harness body. In contrast the buckles of the Wire_Tec system are fixed to a separate ‚free-floating ' plate (Floating_Buckle_System) to prevent the well-known stiff spots at the side of the harness. In addition, thanks to this plate, the forces coming from the kite are lead directly over the entire back. This avoids punctual pressure points at the sides.
