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.
