I designed the DYNABAR with holes in order to attach the dyneema slider as close as possible to spreaderbar. All the new sliding systems based on dyneema slider are using the same concept to reduce the torque problem.BWD wrote: ↑Thu Jun 08, 2017 3:29 pmSeems to me there are two possible benefits:
First, reducing torque applied by hook to CL connection - especially vertical torque which contributes to harness riding up.
Second, allowing more stance variation by sliding connection toward rider's forward hip.
I don't have a sliding hook. Currently I use a BRM type connection to a standard hook (actually attached to a crossbar halfway up the hook, shortening lever arm a few cm). This seems to slightly reduce lateral torque but has little help against vertical torque - harness still rides up sometimes.
I am sure reducing the lever/torque is a benefit, less sure having the tow point/connection slide across the body is helpful with a waist harness. But open to trying it.
Thanks to innovators like Dynabar, Engine, BRM for taking new solutions into production, keeping the sport fresh and progressing!
I think the seat harness is an old concep for kitesurfing and I won't design one.
it's on the to do list, I will try. thanks!!Try adding a dyneema rope and a ring, better two, to your spreaderbar for a while and you won't go back.
But I suppose seat harness users could still benefit from the sliding attachment point.mariojay wrote: ↑Thu Jun 08, 2017 8:09 pmI think the seat harness is an old concep for kitesurfing and I won't design one.
In 2014 I designed the leg straps accessory to be added to a waist harness, you have more options to split load between waist, legs and bottom.
Another plus is you can keep the hook at the position you like more, with seat harness is impossible.
