Hex Core Harness

The magic lies in Ride Engine’s innovative hard-shell design that locks firmly into your lumbar and spreads load evenly across your back and sides. Based on hundreds of custom moulds taken from riders’ backs, the shell provides unrivalled ergonomics and allows for a low-profile, high-performance fit that will literally change your entire kiteboarding experience.

The Hex Core model is made from injection honeycomb core technology. This creates the super strong but light weight shell that the rest of the harness is built around. When compared to the Carbon Elite model, the Hex Core is slightly more flexible. For freestyle and unhooked riding, pair the Hex Core harness with our standard fixed-hook spreader bar. For surfing and general hooked-in freeriding, pair it with our metal or carbon slider bar.

• Improved waist belt with reworked spreader bar integration system
