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.
