RIDE ENGINE PRIME 2020 HARNESS
The Prime is a favourite at GenXsports due to it's excellent build quality, superb fit and price point. The Prime is an alternative for riders that want a little more flex in their harness whilst still having enough stiffness to stay supportive. Hardshell harnesses aren't for every body type so the Prime is Ride Engine's alternative giving everyone the opportunity to own the original kitesurfing specific harness. New upgrades in padding and lumbar support have made the 2020 Prime a real front runner in the harness lineup.
Everyone wants a harness to stay down where it’s supposed to while at the same time provide all day multiple session support. The Ride Engine Prime Series answers that call. While the Prime composite harness shares much of the same DNA as the Elite Carbon the use of a multi-layer composite material construction in the Armor Shell sets them apart. This proprietary process allows the engineers to build-in a subtle torsional flex for the rider looking for something a touch more forgiving.
