The world’s first and best hard-shell harness, the Elite Carbon is our stiffest, most-supportive model and is the closest fit to a custom-molded harness you can get. Now equipped with Unity Ladder-Lock Straps so it’s ready to integrate with our Unity Spreader Bar, a true “set it and forget it” system that eliminates spreader bar slip and twist. The Elite Carbon is still constructed using top-shelf 12k carbon fiber, which ensures a durable, strong Armor Shell frame in a lightweight, high-performance package. For 2021, we’ve also added 4mm more Fusion Memory Foam at essential spots. When combined with our proprietary Shell Skin technology with Lumbar Lock shaping, the Elite Carbon provides the ultimate in connection, feel and support.
12k Carbon armour shell - Built with 12K carbon fiber, the Armor Shell of our Elite Carbon is light, strong, and ergonomically contoured—as well as our stiffest. The Armor Shell also allows the load to be distributed seamlessly from the spreader bar to the shell, preventing the harness from buckling or pinching.
Unity spreader bar - Our patent-pending “set it and forget it” spreader bar system creates a solid, stable connection. The Unity Spreader Bar applies an ingenious design utilizing custom-molded Unity Ladder-Lock Straps, thereby eliminating the use of traditional webbing and providing an unrivaled, no slip, locked-in fit.
Lumbar lock - A scientifically supported data shape from more than 1000 custom lower lumbar molds of men and women, the Lumbar Lock conforms and cradles your lumbar, back and sides to lock the harness securely in place. These enhanced ergonomics ensure that you get the maximum support out of your harness—no more sliding side-to-side or riding up.
Handle pass and forward-mounted leash attachments - For freestyle riders, the harness comes with handle-pass-leash mount around the back (which is easy to remove for windsurfing). It also has two, right and left, forward-mounted D-ring leash attachment points for use when a short leash is utilized.
Low profile design - Low-profile framework contributes to a perfect fit and maximum mobility while keeping the harness locked in place and eliminating pressure points
Fusion memory foam - Super soft, ergonomic foam conforms to the shape of your torso for ultimate comfort and hold.
Full neoprene wrap liner - Minimal-seam construction of a full-neoprene wrap conforms to the body, creating a rash-free interface.
