Infos & Characteristics
It all started from an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of current harness technologies, regarding in particular the softshell (the classic flexible harness) and the hardshell (the rigid shell harness):
The softshell provides perfect adaptability to the user’s body type and movements.
But it becomes distorted under the pressure of the kite: The user’s sides are compressed.
It therefore has good adaptability, but little hold.
The hardshell does not become distorted under the pressure of the kite: The user’s sides are not compressed.
But it has no adaptability to the user’s body type and movements.
It therefore has a very good hold, but little adaptability.
By separating the functions of “effort management” and “comfort”, we have created a harness that adapts perfectly to your body type and your movements, while offering unparalleled support.
The ARC is a new generation spreaderbar developed to offer a more precise, comfortable navigation experience, with a harness that is better held in place. A Kite Knife, plus a Waveriding sliding rope included
A product is as durable as the least durable part of its components.
The different components of a harness are often non-replaceable (sewn straps, glued foams, etc.) and certainly not recyclable. Therefore, sometimes a worn or damaged part forces you to throw away the entire product.
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and in order to provide better customer service, all HALO components are assembled without glue or seams so that each part is easily replaceable.
We stock spare parts and are able to replace each of them. The ARC spreaderbar, the sliding rope, and the kite knife are included with purchase.
