Advance have just released details of their new “Lightness” harness, based on Chrigel Maurer’s X-Alps winning harness. It will be available in May. No pricing details are available yet.
ADVANCE LIGHTNESS – Two products, one concept
LIGHTNESS stands for an extremely light and very comfortable reclined harness with speedbag, together with its own lightweight rucksack. Both go perfectly together and these quality products weigh just over 2.5 kg all told, making up a compact entity. The LIGHTNESS is best suited to cross country orientated Hike&Fly pilots, travellers or bivouac flyers.
Tried and tested in the X-Alps
The unique LIGHTNESS concept carries the X-Alps spirit wholeheartedly with it and epitomises the original idea of free flight – to gain the necessary metres on foot, then make the most of their full potential in flight. The ADVANCE X-Alps team put the LIGHTNESS well-and-truly though its paces, and Chrigel Maurer won the world’s hardest paraglider race with it.
Top level comfort – in the air and on the ground
The harness does not have a seatboard, and thus can fit the body perfectly. The comfortable hammock principle succeeds in giving an even more direct feedback from wing to pilot. The many adjustments are used to fit the harness precisely to an individual’s requirements, and the whole body is therefore ideally supported. The exceptionally compact rucksack also offers the highest degree of carrying comfort.
