If you’ve ever dealt with a kiteboarding harness that doesn’t fit properly, hurts your back, rides up too high, shifts from side to side, squeezes your waist under load or inhibits your range of motion, Ride Engine’s hard-shell harness is your problem solver.
The magic lies in Ride Engine’s innovative hard-shell design that locks firmly into your lumbar and disperses load evenly across your back and sides. Based on hundreds of custom molds taken from riders’ backs during Ride Engine’s early days, the shell provides an unrivaled ergonomic fit and allows for a low-profile, highly supportive design that will change your entire kiteboarding experience.
The Hex Core model is made from an exclusive injection honeycomb core technology. This creates the super strong but light weight shell that the rest of the harness is built around.
For freestyle and unhooked riding, pair the Hex Core harness with our standard fixed-hook spreader bar. For surfing and general hooked-in freeriding, pair it with our metal or carbon slider bar.
For 2017, we’ve improved our injection molding process for increased strength and visual appeal and have added an additional layer of padding to the integrated waist belt for a more comfortable connection with the spreader bar pad. We’ve also added two new sizes an XS and XXL- to accommodate a broader range of body types.
