Great review, John-B, thanks for that. Gives a good sense of how a properly sized RE will perfom!John-B wrote:Had my first outing on my new Ride Engine the other day, moderately powered 9m weather so thought I’d give a little feedback.
Some reviewers are sharing their RE harness size with a reference to their general body type (athletic, beer gut, medium-ish), jeans size (these can vary greatly by brand), or height + weight. I am guessing that not everyone that weighs 150lbs would wear the same harness, right?
The RE website suggests taking a TRUE measurement at the belly button. It might be helpful to know what people actually measure when they share the harness size that is working out for them?
I wear size 32 jeans, but my TRUE measured waist size at my belt line is actually 34 inches. At belly button it measures 35 inches. Can anyone with these dimensions share their RE harness + spreader bar size? And maybe what they normally wear at their local spot and if their RE harness can accommodate a range of wetsuits etc? Where I live I kite with trunks (summer) all the way through a 5/4 and drysuit (winter).
Would love to try one on in person, but no local shops carry them. I'm pretty sold on getting into one of these but they're not cheap. Anyone willing to offer some additional sizing info would be great!
