hi everybody

it's time for me to buy a new kite harness.

I've got essentially three options in mind:

* Da Kine Fusion
* ProLimit KiteWaist Pro
* Naish Kitepro Seat Highback

now i've got some questions for you:
* what are your experiences with this harnesses?
* which one would you recommend?
* are there other alternatives to be recommended?

Thanks in advance for your answers (:-))

Hi
I've tried the three of them . Actually the one i use is the naish because it is the more confortable one but i sue the scratchs that were suppose to hang the hook because they were going off by themself . I like the pro limit especially for the quick release of the hook systeme but it was a bit harmfull when you ride without suit . The fusion is too much high wearing and harmful for ribs

I dont know if the da kine fusion is a waist or a seat harness. I have the seat harness and like it a lot. It is very comfortable and will hardly ever ride up.
The only thing I dont really like about it is the quick release: it bent open a little after time (I am quite heavy, though, with 90kg) and opened once whilst I was riding toeside.
Overall a good harness, though, especially due to the hook knife!

Try the Dakine Pyro. It's a really comfortable waist harness that doesn't ride up into the ribs and is really supportive.

Cheers,
Matt

Resently bought the Fusion of this year, and was happily surprised about how great this harness is. Totally comfy and supporting all around where it's needed. Haven't felt the harm on the ribs like Francky mentioned - maybe it was a wrong size he tried?
Anyway I think you will love this popular harness.

I just saw the "new" prolimit bar. Besides the convenience of quick release bar, it now also has a nice additional safety feature. A latch you pull to release the harness hook to get out of your harness line or chicken loop of you ride unshackled. Concept is good but not sure how it will work when loaded! I think they're due to be on the market now or very shortly.

Pro-limit rules. Great comfortable harness with long life expectancy

I'm very satisfied with my Da Kine Fusion Seat. Gives me great support for the back.
Didn't try the other ones.
