Split Leg Harness with LOW Hook-In Points

Paramotor Harness

Here it comes – the revolutionary concept – Split Leg Paramotor harness – finally a reality!
We at APCO are proud to have brought to life an idea which has been in the air for a long time – a split-legs paramotor harness which would have no seat-plate, weighing absolute minimum, but in terms of comfort and safety would exceed the standard classic paramotor harness.


    Split Legs

    The Split-Leg concept for Paramotor flying opens up new possibilities and sets a new standard, which if fast being followed by many other brands.
    Giving up on the seat plate immediately allows for reduction of the weight by a half kilo at least. Absence of hard seat plate, makes it easier to create a design where the power is closer to the body (Less torque effect). Split leg seating allows for improved weight shift  steering, which is great for anyone from beginners to slalom racers.

    CG - Center of Gravity

    Effortless takeoff and landing with gravity center moved closer to the back, makes the unit feel lighter.
    No seatplate and Split legs arrangement permits undisturbed take-off run. No hard pieces bumping your thighs on launch which makes it way easier and far more comfortable.

    Surprisingly, contradicting common belief, APCO designers were able to create a harness which is comfortable, above expectations and makes handling of the power unit on take-off and in flight far simpler and effortless.
    The design is rich in options, attentive to the smallest details, with striking appearance of haute couture creation.

    Only top quality materials were used, aiming for the best possible finish, comfort and style.

    Reserve System

    The Optional zip-on side mounted reserve container system for this harness integrates seamlessly into your setup, and provides peace of mind knowing you are flying with a rescue system.

    Can this harness be used for free flying or ground handling?


    The reason is that paramotor harnesses are designed to be hung from the middle of the side arms.
    The main harness hook hook up points are connected to the front of the side arms, but using the side arms in reality your hanging point is somewhere in the middle of the side arms.

    Using a paramotor harness main hook up points as the main hang points without side arms will result in harness position in which you are 90 degrees rotated backwards looking straight up to the canopy.
    It is very dangerous and impossible to use in this way.

    Ground handling is possible, but if there will be even momentarily enough lift to disattach the pilot from the ground, you will be flipped onto your back!
    You can to test this out yourself by performing a simple, stationary hang check in a safe environment.

    Attaching the carabiners to any other point in the harness other than the main hang points is also strictly forbidden due to strength considerations of the harness.
