The Apex 8 comes with a partly Curv shell. Its high outline provides optimal back support thanks to a larger area. The design also features controlled rigidity in the center with flexible side parts, resulting in a perfectly balanced harness of support and freedom of movement. With a flex index of 8, it is one of the medium-rigid models of ION's harness range and turns out to be a real all-around talent. The Apex 8 comes with ION's C-Bar 2.0 which already includes the stainless steel kite hook.
Partly Curv- Partly molded Curv composite material with strong back support and flexible sideparts.
Inside EVA- EVA on the inside prevents the harness from riding up and rotating.
C-Bar 2.0- ION's kite spreader bar C-Bar 2.0 comes with a stainless steel hook. The easy-to-use tension lever system allows for fast attach and release of the harness without having to constantly adjust the webbing. The bar comes without rope, which can be added as an option. Thanks to the modular hook system you can easily upgrade the spreader bar to suit your personal preferences.
Lightweight- Light but durable hybrid construction combined with a clever mix of materials.

Ion has proven themselves to be a producer of high-end kitesurfing accessories and we can say their products certainly hold up season after season. The ION Apex 8 will be a solid and reliable harness choice in anyone's kiting arsenal.
