Weightless (Harness | Pod)
LESS IS MORE FUN | ULTRALIGHT XC HARNESS
The WEIGHTLESS has been developed for X-Alps athletes and specially upgraded for weight-conscious cross country pilots. The WEIGHTLESS is therefore the perfect harness component for ambitious Hike to XC and VolBiv projects, as well as serious competition. Its special qualities include minimal weight, comprehensive usefulness and great comfort. The aerodynamically excellent XC harness also impresses by its lean and dynamic look.
The new WEIGHTLESS is a further development of the 2021 harness for X-Alps athletes. It encapsulates experience gained from all nine previous ADVANCE X-Alps involvements, five of them victories. Seatshell, internal structure and strap system of the WEIGHTLESS are identical to the X-Alps athletes version. A large proportion of the materials used are also the same as the athletes harness.
This ultralight XC harness can be used from a minimum weight of 1.9 kg, and, even so, provides a high degree of comfort for long cross country flights. Despite this absolutely minimal weight, the WEIGHTLESS has punctual reinforcements, an optimised use of material and a speedbag made of stretchy elastane. The WEIGHTLESS is certified to carry a load of 120 kg.
The WEIGHTLESS accepts no compromise in the safety and comfort department! This harness has a built-in reserve and the protector has an easy handling as it needs no inflating before flight. The WEIGHTLESS has useful and practical adjustments as well as an ingenious cockpit.
The two-part protector system consists of a foam protector and the rucksack incl. back foam (protector element), which is stowed in the compartment above. The result: more compact packing of the equipment and more available storage space in the back compartment. Alternatively, the back foam can be used as an additional protector element so that the rucksack can be stowed conventionally in the back compartment.
NEW LIGHTPACK ULS
The LIGHTPACK ULS is built in "Ultra Light Structure" and is part of the comprehensive WEIGHTLESS scope of delivery. It is also derived from the X-Alps athlete's backpack and has adapted shoulder straps and many practical details. The LIGHTPACK ULS is available in sizes 52, 60 and 70 litres.
The WEIGHTLESS rear fairing gives the harness perfect low-drag aerodynamic qualities. This performance advantage accompanies marked longitudinal stability. Two air scoops inflate the fairing, so that it remains permanently taut and crease-free in flight.
BUILT-IN RESERVE COMPARTMENT
The WEIGHTLESS has a built-in reserve compartment, which connects to shoulder supports. This system greatly simplifies general harness handling and reduces the chance of incorrect handling.
Naturally a WEIGHTLESS conforms to ADVANCE quality and standards, and can be combined with a speedbag choice of all three sizes. The advantages of this convenience are clear: increased harness life and perfect pilot body fit. The speedbag also has a strong but extremely light carbon footboard of the very latest generation.
The WEIGHTLESS cockpit is highly practical and very light. It can easily be detached, has a closable pocket and a separate battery compartment. The instrument panel measures 20 x 13 cm.
