RRD’s brand new harness collection suits different needs, rather than claiming each of our harnesses do it all for anyone. Everyone is different. We all have a different back shape, style of riding, stance and preferred riding conditions. This is why we have developed a range of harnesses that suits your personal preference. 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 focused on user experience, ease of use, clean design and high-tech materials and technologies. This is visible in the new Shield harness, Thrive and improved bar stabilizer. The barpad with stabilizer wings, slides into the side of your harness, to prevent ride up of the hook and protects your ribs. The bar stabilizer with hook can be swapped out for a rope bar, which also features the stabilizer wings. This converts any kite waist harness into a wave harness. It helps you to extend your turns and rotate further and easier while wave riding.
The seat harnesses have been redesigned to fit better and spread the load more.
