Rider collaboration is a key component to Ride Engine’s ethos. We have worked closely with some of the best kiteboarders in the world to refine the Armor’s revolutionary design, and that collaboration truly shines in the stunning Team Series lineup. Utilizing compression molding technology to layer fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar, the Pro Team Series models are light, stiff and extremely durable, making this an excellent choice for hard-charging kiters like Patrick Rebstock, who is front lining our Pro team collection in 2015. The Pro Team series is designed for precision fit, rugged performance and a durability that will stand up to the toughest punishment.
Industry’s first hard shell harness, the Armor is light, strong and ergonomically contoured. Load is distributed seamlessly from the spreader bar to the armor shell, preventing harness from buckling or pinching.
Modeled from hundreds of custom body molds, the harness shell conforms to the contours of a rider’s back for a precision ergonomic fit.
Harness conforms to lumbar, back and sides to lock securely in place. Harness won’t slide from side to side or ride up.
Hard-shell core allows for low-profile design, reducing weight and bulk and giving riders more mobility with less restrictions.
Soft foam core conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
Comfort and security join forces with the Alliance Belt, which conjoins the harness’s elastic waist belt and cushioned spreader bar pad, resulting in a unified belt that stays tight and keeps the spreader bar down low where it’s supposed to be.
METAL SLIDER BAR
Recommended for the Team harness is a metal spreader bar, rope and pad system that connects directly with the rider’s chicken loop and allows full range of motion between kite and rider.
