me too


Both my wife and I are also extremely happy with our Ride Engine harnesses.
Although we are equally as happy with all the gear we bought this year
Xeon Laluz board
Epic spartan board
2 - 2014 Cabrinha bars
5m Epic Renegade 3G prototype
7m Epic Renegade 3gll
9m, 11m and 13m Epic Renegade 4g

I also purchased a naish ATB bar but that was for a back up bar which is a work in progress as I am not done modding it completely, although I have used it a dozen times now and I am getting close to how I want it. Once I am done the only original part will be the bar handle and the lines...lol. This was expected so not upset.

I have to say after years of mistakes, I finally made good decisions based on research, testing and finally knowing what works good and what doesn't.

One thing I am on the fence on is the WeatherFlow wind meter.... As of yet my own read has been more accurate then the meters read....

All in all a good year for purchases but the ENGINE harness far exceeded my expectations and was the most surprising improvement to my gear.

Happy holidays
Pete

Core 19m Edge. Best light wind kite I have owned. Whats unbelievable is larger wind range then you would think. Can relaunch in 7 knots.

Board Riding Maui Clouds. At 185-190lb, I never thought I would get so much use out of a 5m kite. Never thought I would find a quiver of kites that I find so much more fun than anything else!

Same for me, absolutely loving my Engine harness. The other gear elements are just renewal due to wear and tear but no big change. That harness is the real deal. Been on for the last 4 months.

A common theme seems to be a red engine harness!

I'll have to put it on my list for when my harness wears out.
