12K CARBON ARMOR SHELL Built with 12K carbon fiber, the Armor Shell of our Elite Carbon is light, strong, and ergonomically contoured—as well as our stiffest. The Armor Shell also allows the load to be distributed seamlessly from the spreader bar to the shell, preventing the harness from buckling or pinching.
LUMBAR LOCK DATA-DERIVED TECHNOLOGY A scientifically supported data shape from more than 1000 custom molds, the Lumbar Lock conforms and cradles your lumbar, back, and sides to lock the harness securely in place. These enhanced ergonomics ensure that you get the maximum support out of your harness—no more harness sliding side-to-side or riding up.
LOW-PROFILE OUTLINE SHAPING A low-profile framework contributes to a perfect fit and maximum mobility while keeping the harness locked in place and eliminating pressure points.
FUSION MEMORY FOAM Super soft, ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
HANDLE-PASS AND FRONT-MOUNT LEASH ATTACHMENT OPTIONS For freestyle riders, the Sabre comes with a handle-pass-leash mount around the back (which is easy to remove for windsurfing). It also has two attachment points in the front for use when a short leash is utilized.
FULL NEOPRENE COMFORT WRAP Minimal-seam construction of a full-neoprene wrap conforms to the body, creating a rash-free interface.
