RIDE ENGINE CARBON ELITE 2020 HARNESSThe Ride Engine team are back for 2020 and they haven't disappointed. Subtle tweaks in the shell have resulted in an even more custom style fit that provides superb comfort and functionality. The guys at Ride Engine are always improving their kit and take rider feedback into account when designing new products and this definitely shows in the 2020 harness range. Along with the technical improvements we feel the cosmetic design is one of, if not the best looking harness Ride Engine have produced. The original kitesurfing specific harness continues to improve giving the rider the opportunity to push their limits.
At the pinnacle of hard-shell harness fit and performance lives the Elite Carbon. Utilizing Ride Engine’s proprietary Shell Skin technology with Lumbar Lock shaping and memory foam support, the Elite Carbon is the closest fit to a custom molded harness that you can get. It is constructed using 12K carbon which ensures a durable strong Armor Shell frame in a lightweight package. Say goodbye to the days of the twisting, squeezing and riding up of traditional harness designs.
