ION'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The revolutionary Thermo Composite CURV material is a totally new innovation in harness development and sets a new benchmark in design and performance.
Featuring this latest development, the brand-new, fully molded APEX CURV 10 offers an outstandingly light yet incredibly robust harness construction and is one of the medium stiff models (flex index 10)* of our range. The 3D Plus Spine and higher outline was designed to support the rider exactly where needed most to ensure long and joyful sessions.
*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
Curv: High stiffness and high resistance to impact and abrasion due to use of 3D thermo composites
C-Bar: Fiber reinforce injection material with a modular exchangeable metal hook. The new tension lever tightens the harness without changing the buckle settings.
Internal Flex_Belt: Keeps your harness in place when unhooked
Inside EVA: Internal EVA construction for optimized comfort
3D Plus_Spine: The Curv harness range comes with a 3-dimensional version of the PLUS_Spine technology which leads to a rigid center back area. The 3D molded Curv material generates a medium axial rigidity made of one piece!

Ion's Harness & Spreader Bar Size Chart
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.
