Neo update String paraglider harness

Wednesday 13 July, 2016

Neo String harness

Neo have updated their ultralight String paragliding and speed flying harness, making it even lighter and more durable, and improving the leg straps. 

It’s made from lightweight Dyneema fabric, with Koroyd /3D mesh technology behind the strong and supple leg pads. Despite its minimalist looks, comfort was a design priority, and Neo say the String is comfortable enough for thermalling and cross-country flying.

Every element of the harness is precisely cut and assembled for an ergonomic shape with true dorsal support and comfort for the legs. The material selection is also critical, with each component chosen without regard for cost.

The harness is size-adjustable using a velcro strap, with a special ‘balance system’ that supports the pilot’s back in flight and makes different flying positions possible. The ventral strap and legs are linked directly to the main karabiner – two clicks and you’re ready to fly.

It can be used with Neo’s stretchy cocoon leg cover and front-mount reserve container.  Neo are also working on an airbag – to be announced soon.

The EN1651-certified String is available in sizes S, M or L sizes, and weighs 320g-370g without karabiners.

Made in France from European materials.
