The Ion Team Edition Wave harness utilizes new technology to provide maximum comfort and support while kitesurfing. Although this harness is marketed for die-hard wave riders, don’t be fooled the key features of this harness also perform well for any free rider looking for an unrestricting harness that is very supportive.
The slider spreader bar on the Wave Harness features a durable line that easily adjusts and allows the chicken loop to move freely when riding. The hookless spreader bar allows the rider to have more range of movement when carving in the waves or riding toeside upwind. If you prefer the hook spreader bar, the slider bar quickly detaches once harness straps are removed.
The harness also features a pre-molded, carbon back plate to provide support when the kite is pulling from all angles. The 3D Titan Shape also locks into the rider’s back to minimize the harness from riding up. This new construction prevents any pressure points on the hips or back, and you begin to forget that you are even wearing a harness.
