AK Ether Harness - Anyone tried it?

Postby peppedurso » Sun Sep 20, 2020 11:51 am

Hi Everyone,

I am quite curious about the Ether harness from AK, anyone tried or seen it?

Not much info online beside the official website and a video review on Kiteboarding.com

Hi Dave, I’ve seen both links already, the project looks quite interesting and I’ll get one!
I was looking for some other kiters reviews though.

I´ll definitely get one!
The size chart looks strange, however. I´d need XL according to it (and I´m a very "normal" guy, 75 kg / 180 cm). I´m wearing a Rideengine in size M comfortably. XL sounds weird to me. A very large group of potential buyers would be excluded from this offer, as XL is their biggest size.
Anyone experieced here?

I asked the same question. And got the following response from somebody who is using one:
“I’m 33-34 and the ether is a little smaller than the normal mediums, the M is the one I use but it’s snug, though I am right on the limit.”
I assume “33-34” is waist size in inches.

I would call kiteboarding.com and talk to them, and also call the manufacturer, and some of their other dealers.

Kiteboarding.com has them in stock and can ship them the same day.
