WIRE_TEC 2.0 Harness Technology

We at ION are always looking for new ways to further refine our technology ensuring that ION gear excels in durability, performance and fit. ION has taken a lesson from the stability and load distribution of cable-stayed bridges for the development of the WIRE_TEC system. Our patented line setup is designed to spread the load evenly across the rider’s back and banish irritating pressure points.

We accepted the challenge to improve last years WIRE_TEC harnesses in order to create an even comfier and safer riding experience.

·             More comfort: the revised FLOATING BUCKLE SYSTEM limits the rotation of the hook in its upward and forward movement. The Dual Density Spreaderbar comes with a new extra comfort pad which adapts perfectly to the rider’s body.

·             More safety: the buckleplate is secured with two extra webbings which are stitched directly to the harness and therefore prevent the hook from sliding off. Combined with the limited hook rotation this ensures a stable but still flexible spreaderbar.
