NEW REVERSIBLE HARNESS
Three new split-leg back-country models to choose from
The reversible lightweight paragliding harness just keep getting better! They now come with attachments to transform them with back protection, an airbag reserve pocket and with the comfort of the split leg seating arrangement, what more could a Para-Traveller wish for!
SUP’AIR RADICAL 3
The Radical 3 is a split-leg harness which has a zipped back-pocket which enables it to transform into a complete back-country harness for only 830g! The airbag is an option and adds on another 760g making the entire set up only 1.6kg. Enough to make you want to travel even more with your glider… Sold with or without the 65 litre ruck sack.
French brand, Scorpio, have come up with an innovative concept for their new reversible split-leg harness, the Alpage: it uses the same shoulder straps for carrying as it does for flying. This means more room for back protection which is included. The Alpage can be used for paragliding as for Speed-riding and can also be equipped with a removable air-bag.
As with all Scorpio harnesses they can be personalised with your own design and choice of colours. Available in two sizes: Small and Medium-Large, and all other sizes can be tailor-made! The harness is sold with rucksack and airbag. Great value for money!
Scorpio are running a spring season promotion with a 30% discount. You can purchase online. Although the website says you can read it in English, it is indeed in France but fairly self-explanatory. Any problems we’ll give you a hand.
