The Kitto is a lightweight, seat-board-free pod harness. Weighing in at under 2.6 [Kg], the Kitto is light, but in line with APCO’s tradition, it does not compromise whatsoever on durability, safety or comfort.
Kitto completes our range of XC pod harnesses, offering a hammock design which supports the body without incorporating the traditional seat-board.
The origin of the name “Kitto”, or “きっと” is a Japanese word which translates to: ‘certainty’ or ‘without fail’.
Certainty is exactly what Kitto will give you – both in your flight decisions as well as trust in your equipment!
The Kitto harness is designed to give the maximum amount of feedback from the wing. The airfoam creates a semi-rigid base for the seat, combining the weight advantages of hammock style harness and the “talkativeness” of a seat-board harness. It will be comfortable for hours without compromises.
Kitto is protected by a combination of airfoam + lexan – unique to APCO, providing superior protection qualities.
The reserve container and bridle arrangement are separately and neatly secured with a zipper closing system which allows for very fast, low friction opening.
The Kitto is compatible with our Flight Deck Lite, which is quick to install and remove as needed. The harness is supplied with a preinstalled three-step speed bar, and a foot bungee for ease of entry after takeoff. The harness also packs small, so, when combined with a lightweight glider, will easily fit into a compact backpack such as our Light Backpack 80, and it can even be reversed into its own rear storage compartment, to keep it compact for packing.
