Dudek have just released a new cross-country and competition paraglider pod harness: the Pogo 4 is optimised for performance and all-day comfort.
Dudek say, “Although the name of the harness suggests that it is a continuation of its predecessor, this time it is a completely new product for cross-country pilots”. Comfort for long flights was a priority, and it’s very adjustable, with a ventilated back to the ergonomic seat.
There are no protruding parts to spoil its sleek exterior, and a long back spoiler increases efficiency. The new two-step speedbar has high-quality Ronstan pulleys.
The Pogo 4 weighs 5.3kg in the M size, and Dudek say that’s “probably the lightest in its class”. It has a detachable windshield to keep the wind off the pilot’s face, and the flight deck has a powerbank pocket so you can charge your instruments on the go.
Safety features include a 15cm back protector and two rescue parachute compartments, and there’s a handy hook-knife in the flight deck, just in case. It also has an anti-G pocket and a four-litre under-seat ballast pocket. RRP is €1,199.
