2016 ION VERTEX SELECT is jam-packed with a mouthwatering amount of ION’s high tech features, making this harness perfect for waves. This year we have added the new Wire_Tec and its complementing X-Spine technology for balanced load distribution

 

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.

I stole this harness from Stan. This is the most comfortable and light weight harness I have ever used. Memory foam, and the new Wire tech support system make this the #1 choice for me. (Posted on 4/8/2016)
