Hi all,

any updates regarding new harness (seat or hybrids) which are good for Airstyle, and not rise up against your ribs while riding overpowered?

I am riding a Vapor Hardback waist harness from Prolimit, it is good and sits in place as far as possible for a waist.
But while overpowerd riding for a longer period at the time, it will hurts the ribs.

So I am looking for my best possible solution for an upgrade.

have a look at this...I ordered it, but didn't received it yet, since I am in Brazil...

But looks like a good hybrid alternative.

Been using the Mystic Marshall for 6 months with the Mystic Stealth spreaderbar and it is perfect. No more lowerback pain and doesnt ride up.

Mystic foil seat sits nice and low, it does not put pressure on my spine.

I'm using ION Radar Seat Harness, and it's light since composite spreader bar, wide straps and locks in nicely but a bit bulky overall. I wouldn't go back to the waist harness as it's a waste of time adjusting during the session

Why not buy a mystic strappie?
Turns your waist harness into a semi seated one, works perfectly

I saw these strappies last year, but I couldn't find any dealer who had these on stock, or could their hands on it.
But since my post, I found the shop (Powerkiteshop) in the UK, which have them. So I ordered and waiting for receival.
Can't wait to try them, I will let you guys (and ladies) know what the results are.


Toby, please keep me/us posted regarding the Prolimit seat combo, as I saw that one as well as a option to tryout.
So if the strappies are not great, I could tryout this one as well.
