THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
We recommend the Apex CS 15 to all riders who want a comfortable higher outline harness that has excellent load distribution, lots of features, and is on the stiffer side. Please note that harnesses are like shoes and we highly recommend that you try on as many harnesses as possible to find the right one for you.
ION'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
Featuring our innovative CS design, the Apex CS 15 is one of the stiffest harnesses of our range (flex index 15)*. All harness loads are perfectly distributed due to the stiff pre-shaped center part, whilst flexible side parts allow you to move and twist freely. Together with the high outline it is offering all the comfort you could possibly wish for. The 3D shaped Archbar and water absorbent Hyperfoam add to the harness' outstanding performance for extra-long water action.
*Flex Index (1-20): The flex index describes the rigidity of the harness.
Higher flex index = hard and rigid = direct feeling
Lower flex index = soft and flexible = comfortable
Composite Shape: Extremely strong composite construction for outstanding back support with flexible sideparts
C_Bar 2.0: Lock and go with this 40% lighter spreader bar
Internal Flex_Belt: Keeps your harness in place when unhooked
Inside EVA: Internal EVA construction for optimized comfort
Carbon Plus_Spine: The high rigid carbon inlay ensures efficient loads distribution in the lumbar region and offers maximal support along the longitudinal axis. The variance of torsion combined with lateral flexibility results in maximum freedom of movement and individual fit.
HPL_Slider: Slim tube with sliding stainless steel ring to connect handle pass leash. New end-stopper fittings.
Ion's Harness & Spreader Bar Size Chart
Recommended Spreader bar
The exact length of the spreader bar is crucial for a comfortable fit. The bar spreads the force across the hip area into the back part of the harness where the main pressure will be distributed. Too small a spreader bar will collapse the harness and hurts your hips while riding.
