The 2019 Ride Engine Prime Island Time Harness is a new hardshell offering for riders who want a bit more flex and a softer feel than the premium carbon construction of the Elite series. Featuring a TPU laminated composite construction, the Prime Island Time Harness still has all the load spreading benefits and support that define Ride Engine's harness line, but with a little more give. Ride Engine's new proprietary Shell Skin technology significantly improves the UV resistance, abrasion resistance, impact strength, and water and tear resistance, extending the life of this essential piece of equipment and improving its fit and function. Armor Shell hard shell tech is lightweight and strong, spreading the load evenly across the back for unmatched comfort. Lumbar Lock conforms to the body to lock it in place, so it doesn't slide sideways or ride up your chest. On the inside, super soft Fusion Foam conforms to your shape giving it a high level of comfort and grip. The Prime Island Time Harness's Speed Lock closure system has dual-zone webbing with a new anti-slip material for improved flexibility that makes it easier to tighten and adjust and prevents it from loosening while you ride. The spreader bar (not included) stays secured on one side with the other side fitting easily onto a metal clasp for quick in and out and fast tightening even on the fly. This system also makes it easy to use different spreader bars. A removable handle pass leash and a front mount leash attachment point on each side let you customize it for your riding style.
**PLEASE NOTE THIS HARNESS DOES NOT INCLUDE A SPREADER BAR*** or SURF SLIDER. No ACCESSORY IS INCLUDED with the Ride Engine Harness.
