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 RIOT CURV 9 offers an outstandingly light yet incredibly robust harness construction. The 3D Plus Spine was designed to support the rider exactly where needed most to ensure long and joyful sessions when the waves are pumping. The low outline increases the freedom of movement even further. The RIOT CURV 9 is one of our medium stiff harnesses (flex index 9)*.
*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: Completely molded CURV composite material with strong Back support and flexible sideparts
C_Bar: Fiber reinforced 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
No matter, if you run over your harness with a car or lose your CURV on a construction site - almost nothing can break these harnesses. Know from the use in market-leading suitcases this material was made to survive impacts and endless hours of travel.
CURV harnesses are medium rigid with a flex index from 8 to 10 for perfect support and less fatigue. While they are rigid in the center back area, they feature flexible side parts adapting to your individual anatomy, further enhancing agility and progression while riding.
The shape of a plus on the back part reinforces the harness at the vertical center line and keeps lateral flexibility at the same time. PLUS_SPLINE provides even more back support in the center of the harness and the perfect individual fit due to the flexibility in the horizontal directions.
