No one had ever designed a specific geometry for a harness dedicated to speedriding: a geometry allowing the skier to express himself. NEO has done it: inspired by a mix of paragliding harness and skydiving harness, the Body 2.0 allows the rider to have a real ski position while facilitating the passage of sitting for the phases of flight or acrobatics.
The harness attachment points are located more closely to the body for a natural standing position, even when the glider lifts overhead, or when the skier leans to the side in an upright ski posture – throughout all ski movements, the harness allows the wing to be controlled independantly.
For the legs we developed truly independent leg straps which allow creativity when freeriding steep slopes without causing the wing to be sent in an opposing direction by skiing weight shift. When combined with the NEO X-Ride and S-Ride, this new harness creates a synergisic relationship between the pilot and the wing, in which the skier leads and the wing follows.The turns are more fluid and precise. The best riders can increase their creativity tenfold.
The Body 2.0 keeps the strong features of its predecessor with a geometry dedicated to speedriding. Its locking system enables the pilot to put the harness on even when one has skis on.
What is new on the second version of the Body?
- A better ergonomy and more comfort
- Independent and more precise locking and setting systems
- A bigger back pocket (25L) with multiple storage pockets (shovel, probe, carry bag, and various other storage items)
- The leg straps are to be inserted in a sheath for more comfort
- Camelbag passage on the left shoulder
