Wave / Freeride harness with releasable bar?

Postby mr moon » Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:11 pm

Looking for a comfy wave-free-riding harness with a releasable spreader bar, any ideas?

So far I've only seen one by Prolimit: http://www.prolimit.com/product/kitesurf-wave-harness/

Any advice will be much apreciated :thumb:

Prolimit has their Pin Release.
Mystic has their Clickerbar.

Liquid Force has their unique Locking Cam spreader, but it still requires engaging the hold down strap. Ion has something similar to this coming out soon.
Everyone else (for the most part) uses a locking clip type closure similar or equivalent to Ion's Team Series Wave.

MYSTIC
Don't like the clickabar, design too complicated.. I want to be able to fully release entire bar / harness.

ION
Ion wave looks real good, rope system might work well but the bar it's not releasable.

PROLIMIT
It looks like the only alternative but I don't know how/wether the sliding system works... does anybody own one??

Mystic complicated? Have you had a chance to fiddle with new Clickerbar 4? It's much better than previous versions.
Ion also makes the Team Series AH that is the same harness, but spec'ed with a hook if you prefer that.
I've been wanting to see that Prolimit wave harness, but I'd have a better chance of finding gold now in my state than Prolimit's products. :(
FWIW: I can exit my Ion harness in seconds, but it does require me to loosen the straps on one side then use two hands to unhook the clip, but it's quick.

Gone for a Prolimit vapor http://www.prolimit.com/vapor/

It's one of the best harnesses I've ever seen, also purchased a second wave / rope bar. The rope is just right, not too long and not too short in width like others.

The harness is light, low profile and super well cushioned on the edges. It fits well and it's very technical.. no bar rotation at all, easy adjustment, a sweet quick bar release and multiple leash attach points!

It doesn't include a knife, but as I only use marine standard safety knifes, I've easily fitted my titanium GILL on the side 8)

I'll give some feedback once tested it in the battle fields :surf:
