Technologies used

 

ENERGY DISPERSION PLATE

The Energy Dispersion Plate works in the same way as the ground-breaking Energy Dispersion Frame that we pioneered four years ago. The UNION integrates the plate inside the harness and it is directly connected to the spreader bar to ensure it takes 100% of the load from the kite.

This creates unrivalled comfort by dispersing the pressure around your back, using a snug fit and following a heavily researched outline to ensure the optimum support.

By diffusing the load around this plate and the spreader bar it takes any stress off the softer parts of the harness, such as the foam, thermoform and stitching, this makes the harness even more durable and reliable

 

FEATHER WEIGHT

Weighing in at just 1.1 kilos (medium size, no spreader bar) you’ll want to be careful this harness doesn’t blow away on a windy day! The UNION is one of the lightest harnesses on the market, and it stays light even when wet, as it doesn’t absorb water.

The new Union is almost weightless on your body; you won’t even notice you are wearing it!

 

SINGLE FOAM
 
comfortable technology

Comfort is paramount in any harness; the UNION uses a single injection mold to make a one-piece foam backing.

This makes it exceedingly durable, as there are less parts to be glued or stitched together. It absorbs far less water and is much lighter than the multiple foam layups used in some harnesses.

 

DOWN HOLD SYSTEM

Because there’s nothing worse than a harness that rides up during your sessions, we developed the DOWN HOLD SYSTEM, an asymmetrical attachment that distributes the forces downward.

Secured in its original position, the hook does not ride back up.

 

SPREADER BAR SYSTEM

We wanted to avoid unpleasant lateral contraction of the harness on the chest, which is why we adapt our SPREADER BAR to harness sizes.

A well suited spreader bar will pull along both sides of the harness, while a spreader bar that is too small will pull with an acute angle, putting pressure on the rider and causing troublesome pain.
