The 12K carbon hardshel of the Carbon Elite gives you the best support while the memory foam padding ensures a comfortable fit and less pressure points.
Carbon hardshell with new Unity closure from Ride Engine
Ride Engine is the founder of the hardshell harness. They have been optimizing their hardshell harnesses for years. The Ride Engine Carbon Elite 2021 is the stiffest harness in the Ride Engine 2021 kitesurf harness line-up. The Elite Carbon is made of super stiff 12k carbon and therefore gives you the best support in all conditions.
The fit of the Ride Engine Carbon Elite 2021 harness has not come out of the blue. The form is based on more than 1000 human models of the lower back. All this data has been merged to create the super tight Lumbar Lock fit of the Elite Carbon. You don't even have to pull the Elite Carbon tight and the harness is already hanging around your waist. On the inside of the Elite Carbon hardshell 2021 is a thick and comfortable memory foam padding. This year extra foam was added in a number of places that were experienced as annoying pressure points. The memory faom molds perfectly to your body for a super tight but comfortable fit. At the back of the Carbon Elite harness is a handle pass leash attachment, but you can also attach your short harness leash to the front of your harness. In the elastic band that you pull tight around your waist you will find a handy compartment for your safety knife, the knife is not included.
This year, the Ride Engine Carbon Elite has a brand new spreader bar and closure system. The new Unity spreader bar is a true revolution. You only have to set this spreader bar properly once and never adjust it again. The Unity spreader bar closure works a bit like a ski boot closure. You can set the length of the thick plastic strap on either side of the harness. There is a lever clip on both sides of the Ride Engine Elite carbon harness. In this clip you hook the end of the Unity spreader bar and in one movement you pull the Ride Engine Carbon Elite tighter than you ever imagined. The ends of the Unity spreader bar merge into the Carbon Elite harness, so that the spreader bar remains super tight in place and cannot tilt upwards. You can secure the Unity spreader bar on two sides, so whether you are left or right-handed, you can always use your preferred hand. The Unity spreader bar has a standard hook, but can also be converted to a rope.
