KB HARNESSES

RRD’s brand new Y25 harness collection is cleaner than ever, with some brand new innovations and fine tuned classics. Our range suits riders specific needs, rather than claiming each harness does it all for everyone. 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.

User experience with ease of use is important to us. This results in our clean designs with high-tech materials and technologies throughout the range. From the spread tow carbon outer shell of the Shield, our NEW Composite ergonomic back support batten in the Shift pro, to a 3D moulded ‘soft shield’ on the Thrive. Most models feature our improved barpad with stabilizer wings, which slides into the side of your harness, to prevent the hook from riding up to protect your ribs. On our kite harnesses, the barpad with kite hook can be swapped out for a rope bar with stabilizer wings to convert it into a wave riding specific harness.

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

SHIELD HARNESS

KITE WAIST PERFORMANCE

BLACK

SIZESART. CODE
XS-S / M / L-XL25SDKH 07

DESCRIPTION

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

The all new Shift pro is the most comfortable harness in the range. The back of the harness features our new composite ergonomic back support batten technology.

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.

ROPE SPREADERBAR V3

Our all new Rope Spreaderbar with stabilizer wings will convert any harness in our collection into a wave orientated harness. The Spectra rope bar with the all new stainless steel slider part will replace your standard hook. This allows you a wider range of motion while wave riding, letting the chickenloop slide from side to side of the rope. Toe-side or backside wave riding has never been this easy. The Rope Spreaderbar will also help extending your turns without the kite limiting your body rotations.
Be ready for some next level wave-riding.
