Ride Engine Elite Waist Harness

For those who want the very best in high-performance materials and construction, this is the harness for you.

The Ride Engine Elite V6 Carbon is still constructed using top-shelf 12k carbon fibre, which ensures a durable, strong Armor Shell frame in a lightweight, high-performance package. For 2021, we’ve also added 4mm more Fusion Memory Foam at essential spots.

When combined with our proprietary Shell Skin technology with Lumbar Lock shaping, the Elite Carbon provides the ultimate in connection, feel and support.

The magic lies in Ride Engine’s innovative hard-shell design that locks firmly into your lumbar and spreads load evenly across your back and sides. Based on hundreds of custom molds taken from riders’ backs, the shell provides unrivalled ergonomics and allows for a low-profile, high-performance fit that will literally change your entire kiteboarding experience.

The result is a low-profile, form-fitting harness that will dramatically improve your entire kiteboarding experience.

The Ride Engine Elite harness will to lock firmly in place like no other.

Riders are often forced to rotate their harnesses from side to side to get pull from the proper angle when carving upwind, riding toeside or catching waves.

This range of motion requires a looseness in the harness that also allows vertical and torsional movement, resulting in rider discomfort, constricted breathing, pull from the wrong angle and a variety of other issues.<p >With the Elite's hard-shell Lumbar Lock technology, the harness does not rotate or slide; it locks in place and stays exactly where it should. This means lateral motion must come from the spreader bar. The metal slider bar is a spreader bar, rope and pad system that connects directly with the rider’s chicken loop. This setup is totally unique and provides a smooth and full range of motion, allowing the harness’s lumbar lock technology to work its magic while rider changes angles of attack, carves upwind, rides toeside and slashes waves.

Available in 8", 10" or 12" spreader bar options.

Features:
  • 12K Carbon Armor Shell: Built with 12K carbon fibre, the Armor Shell of our Elite Carbon is light, strong, and ergonomically contoured—as well as our stiffest. The Armor Shell also allows the load to be distributed seamlessly from the spreader bar to the shell, preventing the harness from buckling or pinching.
  • Unity Spreader Bar: Patent-pending “set it and forget it” spreader bar system creates a solid, stable connection. The Unity Spreader Bar applies an ingenious design utilizing custom-molded Unity Ladder-Lock Straps, thereby eliminating the use of traditional webbing and providing an unrivaled, no slip, locked-in fit.
  • Lumbar Lock : Harness conforms to lumbar, back and sides to lock securely in place. Harness won’t slide from side to side or ride up. A scientifically supported data shape from more than 1000 custom lower lumbar molds of men and women, 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 sliding side-to-side or riding up.
  • Handle Pass and Forward-Mounted Leash Attachments: For freestyle riders, the harness comes with handle-pass-leash mount around the back (which is easy to remove for windsurfing). It also has two, right and left, forward-mounted D-ring leash attachment points for use when a short leash is utilized.
  • Shell Skin: Provides UV Resistance, Impact Strength, Abrasion Resistance, plus Water and Tear Resistance. Not only will the Shell Skin give you added durability to extend the life of your harness, it also improves the overall fit and function of the harness. Enhanced ergonomics ensure that you get the maximum support out of your harness.
  • Low Profile Design: Low profile framework contributes to a perfect fit and maximum mobility while keeping the harness locked in place and eliminating pressure points.
  • Fusion Memory Foam:  Super soft and ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold. Your harness will feel like it’s part of your body.
  • Full Neoprene Wrap Liner: Minimal-seam construction of a full-neoprene wrap conforms to the body, creating a rash-free interface.
  • Easy Entry Adjustment: Single closure waist belt for easy entry and adjustment.
  • Anti-Slip Webbing: Softer, more pliable anti-slip webbing. This new tighter weave durometer makes fit adjustment easy to manipulate while at the same time prevents slipping and loosening of the harness straps during your session.
  • Buckle Guards: Eliminates exposed, vulnerable line catching points.
  • Removeable Handle Pass Connection: Harness comes with easy to remove handle pass leash mount around the back for freestyle riders OR Windsurfing. It also has two front-mounted leash attachment points for use when handle pass leash is removed.
