From Ride Engine:
From the outside, the Saber looks the same. Pop it on the scale, however, and you’ll see a whopping 25% reduction in weight. We are legendary for being at the forefront of material science, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that we were able to substitute in the latest thin, lean materials without diminishing the Saber’s performance and durability. Using the same proprietary data that created our Elite Carbon hard-shell shape, the frame of the Saber is built with a slightly softer composite material for the kitesurfer or windsurfer that wants a bit more freedom in their ride. The injected-molded shell has purpose-driven contours that deliver increased torsional flex while still providing the full benefits of Lumbar Lock fit with and that coveted Ride Engine locked-in feel. The Saber comes equipped with Unity Ladder-Lock Straps so it’s ready to plug into our Unity Spreader Bar for maximum connectivity and zero slippage.

SES (Structurally Engineered Shell)
A unique blend of composite moldable materials with computer-aided structural engineering, the SES enhances the flex properties of the harness while retaining a high level of fit and connection.
Unity Spreader Bar Compatible
Our patent-pending “set it and forget it” spreader bar system that creates a solid, stable connection, the Unity Spreader Bar has an ingenious design utilizing custom-molded ladder-lock straps, thereby eliminating the use of traditional webbing and providing an unrivaled locked-in fit.
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 framework contributes to a perfect fit and maximum mobility while keeping the harness locked in place and eliminating pressure points.
Handle-Pass, Front-Mounted Leash Attachments
For freestyle riders, the harness comes with a handle-pass leash mount around the back (which is easy to remove for windsurfing). It also has two front-mounted leash attachment points for use when a short leash is utilized.
Fusion Memory Foam
Super soft, the ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
We were very impressed with the first version of the medium-hard shell saber harness and are stoked with the second iteration. While maintaining the same freedom and support as the V1 model, they were able to cut 25% off the total weight of the harness, making for an even more comfortable and free ride.
