Details

Improvements over traditional XC pod harness:

  • ABS geometry integrated with a new NEO concept: the paragliding bucket seat. The result: comfort, stability, handling, and precision.
  • Safety innovations: The NEO-Koroyd 1.0 back protector.
  • Practical details and technical accessories, designed by pilots for XC flights.
  • Craftsmanship and quality from our wholly-owned, on-sight production facility, using 100% European materials.

New geometry, new concept: The Bucket Seat
The focus of our design work was on the geometry and the seat area of the harness, creating a stable and ergonomic foundation with a very precise turn. To achieve this, we integrated a new EVA sandwich back protector into the harness. The result is that the Suspender is a new hybrid concept combining a bucket seat and a mix of seat-board and hammock characteristics, with a more streamlined and supportive protector that spans the full length of the harness.

The geometry design and trimming is centered around:

  • Harness CG.
  • Carefully tuned ABS (Anti-Balance-System), to control the roll axis.
  • Pitch attitude balance, to control yaw axis.
  • Additional upper ABS structure for additional stability in active air.
  • Adjustable center webbing (42-47cm) for precision and roll axis stability.
  • Optimal balance between stability, glider feedback, and handling.

In flight, you can feel:

  • Structured thigh support which maintains turn energy and creates a feeling similar to skiing: the carve effect.
  • Precise handling
  • The seat rigidity maintains heading when you push the speed bar. The Suspender offers comfort and precision similar to a competition harness, for a much smaller weight.

Comfort:

  • The bucket seat is the most comfortable harness we have flown.
  • Balanced support in the seat and the pod, allowing the pilot to relax both the torso and legs.
  • There is no need to tighten the shoulder straps: the seatback is very rigid, eliminating back pain during long flights.
  • The sponge seat densities are optimal for long flights.
  • Precise, simple trimming: side straps, seat depth/lumbar straps, front belt, shoulders straps, and chest strap.

Active safety:
During more than 300 hours of flight testing, the active safety features of the Suspender have been proven.

  • You can fly the Suspender in a seated position, with stability immediately after launch and while settling into the pod. There is no “swing set” sensation.
  • The rescue handle is easy to find, located on the main carabiner axis.
  • The under-seat rescue container easily deploys the rescue via a large opening.
  • Easy pod entry and exit.
