HARNESSES Y27

RRD’s brand new Y27 harness collection is cleaner than ever, with some brand new innovations and fine tuned classics. From the beginning RRD harnesses focus on rider’s different back shapes, styles of riding, stance and preferred riding conditions. This is how we have developed a range that suits personal preferences. The main variants in the range are firstly, the different stiffness and flex in the back of the harness. A stiffer harness will suit people that are looking for comfort and stability during those fully powered or explosive sessions. A more flexible harness is more suitable for freeride or ‘down the line’ styles of riding.
Secondly the RRD waist harnesses have different back shapes with more or less vertical curve. From a curved back, a natural back shape to a flat back, we have the right harness for you.

This year we have simplified our range and combined a few kite and windsurf models together into one universal model that can be used safely for both kite and windsurfing. Look for the PLUS models in the collection. The universal spreader bar and hook can be purchased separately too to convert any model into a universal one.

A focus on user experience made us simplify our harnesses to become clean and function with high-tech materials and ergonomic shapes. From the spread tow carbon outer shell of the Shield models, the Composite ergonomic back support batten in the Shift pro plus, to a 3D moulded ‘soft shield’ on the Thrive plus models. Most models feature our barpad with stabilizer wings, which slides into the side of your harness, to prevent the hook from riding up to protects your ribs.

If you prefer riding waves on your kite, consider our rope sliding bar to convert any harness into a wave riding specific harness.

Browse the collection, try them out and decide what’s your personal favorite.

SHIELD HARNESS Y27

The Shield is RRD’s premium low profile carbon support kiteboarding harness. The light and stiff outer shell is a 3D moulded spread tow carbon composite plate that stiffens up the back of the harness. The stiff back enhances the support by spreading the pulling force from the spreader bar evenly over your back. In contrast to some other hard shell harnesses on the market, the side and rib areas remain slightly flexible, to allow for unrestricted body movements and rib protection. The stiffness of the Shield’s low outer shell replaces the need for a high harness back, to get the back support needed. The low back profile combined with flexible sides gives you unrestricted body motion, so your moves will be more tweaked out than ever. The inside features Memory foam combined with soft neoprene, which gives you that extra bit of comfort and performance during long or powerful sessions. The improved barpad with stabilizer wings, slides into the side of your harness, to prevent the hook from riding up to protects your ribs. The barpad with kite hook can be swapped out for a rope bar with stabilizer wings (available separately). A rope bar converts any waist harness into a wave harness. It helps to extend your turns, by allowing you to rotate further and easier than you would with a hook spreader bar.

DESCRIPTION

If you want to unlock the Shift pro’s full potential, you can insert the carbon Composite ergonomic back support batten vertically in the center of the harness back. The high back profile combined with the naturally curved batten boosts up the support and stiffness of the harness to allow for more powered up riding and big air performance kiteboarding. The Shift pro is suitable for people with a naturally curved to flat lower back shape. The soft and comfortable neoprene inside combined with our EVA gip back section for maximum comfort for everyday and powered up riding. The improved barpad with stabilizer wings, slides into the side of your harness, to prevent the hook from riding up to protects your ribs.

SPREADER BARS

Our improved Rope Spreaderbar with stabilizer wings will convert any harness in our collection into a wave orientated harness. The double thick Spectra rope bar with our new stainless steel slider part will replace a standard hook. This allows for a wider range of motion while wave riding, letting the chickenloop slide from side to side on the rope. Toe-side or backside wave riding has never been more comfortable. The Rope Spreaderbar will also help to extend your turns, without the kite limiting your body rotations. The specifically designed stainless steel slider tube prevents the chickenloop from getting pinched like it would with a normal rope and ring construction. It keeps the chickenloop straight and prevents it from rotating like a hook would do. Be ready for some next level wave-riding.
