2022 Ride Engine Elite Carbon V7 Harness
Here's what Ride Engine has to say about the Elite Carbon V7:
"The benchmark in carbon-fiber hard-shell harnesses, the Elite Carbon continues to lead the way—this year at 25% less weight. We rethought every component on the Elite Carbon and intelligently pulled weight by using thinner, leaner materials whenever possible— all without sacrificing durability and performance. Equipped with Unity Ladder-Lock Straps so it’s ready to integrate with our Unity Spreader Bar, the Elite Carbon is still constructed using top-shelf 12k carbon fiber, which ensures a durable, strong Armor Shell frame in a lightweight, high-performance package. When combined with our Fusion Memory Foam and proprietary Shell Skin technology with Lumbar Lock shaping, the Elite Carbon provides the ultimate in connection, feel and support."
Features of the Ride Engine Elite Carbon V7
12K Carbon Armor Shell
Built with 12K carbon fiber, the Armor Shell of the Elite Carbon is light, strong, and ergonomically contoured—as well as Ride Engine's stiffest harness. 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 Compatible (spreader bar sold separately)
Ride Engine's 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.
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.
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, ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
Internal Waist Belt Strap
An internal, single-closure waist-belt strap provides a secure fit and easy entry and adjustment.
Hook-Knife Pocket (knife sold separately)
Easy access hook-knife pocket location.
