Split Leg harness - full range of sizes

The Split Legs harness has proven to be one of those, "once in a decade" improvements which cannot be ignored.
In less than a year this harness has become the first choice for many pilots worldwide, including the international competition scene.

The Split Legs is not only a super-light harness, but also a smart design that brings the engine closer to your back making the whole set up feel lighter than you are used to.

It is always a pleasure to see the surprise on a pilot's face the first time he picks up his equipment after upgrading to the Split Legs harness.

Following primary feedback from customers, we decided to go ahead and add a small accessory to further improve the harness.

POLYCOMB SEATPLATE - 50% lighter honeycomb structure, stiff as wooden seatboard for optimal feedback from the wing and harness.
This material will be used both on the seatplate and on the legplate, reducing almost 500 gr. from the weight of the harness.
Will be supplied as standard for no additional cost.

Battery Pocket - easily attaches to, or removed from, the instrument panel.
