We're coming full circle with our hard shell harness. Originally created to solve the problem of windsurfing harnesses that had been re-purposed for kiteboarding, now our revolutionary hard shell kiteboarding harness is making its way into the windsurfing world. Pictured is Jp Bowles giving our hex core harness and windsurfing spreader bar a test drive in Maui.
JP's feedback: "Ride Engine harness is the best. Bomb proof construction, zero back pain, low profile comfit fit. Double thumbs up."

Collaborative Evolution
All kite harnesses on the market today are "soft" meaning that they offer no structural support. When the kite starts pulling the harness wants to fold and crushes the rider's torso. Engine harnesses in contrast are built from a carbon composite shell that is rigid enough to "stay open" and not put pressure on the rider even when the kite is really powered. Basically the same idea as a spreader bar but applied to the whole harness instead of just the front. In addition because they are rigid they only fit one part of your back and thus don't "ride up" over the course of a session. Because they offer more support we have also been able to cut down on the overall size of the harness which offers more range of movement. Finally we can custom mold the shells to fit you perfectly and even add custom graphics. I have yet to have someone say that they liked their old harness better.

History in a nutshell...

What started out as weekend project to improve some gear has rabbit holed into a little company represented by the best riders in the world. Our first product is a line of hand crafted kite surfing waist harnesses. Each harness is based off of a custom molded carbon composite shell which gives better support than anything else on the market. Comfy as ****. Custom is encouraged. Made with love and stoke.
