Characteristics of a Kite Harness: Stiffness, Flex, and Grip

Learn about the three key characteristics of a kite harness: stiffness, flex, and grip. Mystic’s patented bionic core frame ensures stiffness in one direction while maintaining flex in the opposite direction for maximum performance.

Stiffness– The stiffness of a kiteboarding harness is determined by the type of back plate used. Mystic’s patented bionic core frame (BCF) is made of unique composite materials that allow for differences in stiffness. By laying the fibers in a specific lay-out, the BCF creates stiffness in one direction while maintaining flex in the opposite direction, providing maximum support and performance.

Flex– In kiteboarding, freedom of movement is crucial. Whether you’re making big air or insane freestyle moves, you need a harness that allows you to move around easily. Mystic takes harness flex into account, ensuring that you have the freedom of movement you need to perform at your best.

Grip– A waist harness needs to have grip to ensure it stays snug around your waist. This provides support and reduces the risk of rash. Even if you’re riding bare chest or in a wetsuit, you don’t want the harness moving around too much. Mystic harnesses are designed with grip in mind, so you can focus on your riding without worrying about your harness.
