The STRIKE can be used without the mini-seat plate and without the removable pocket. The easily removable BUMPAIR can be carried separately or may not be used at all in flight.
The structural design of the Split-Leg harness with a removable mini-seat plate brings clean and precise steering sensations. The piloting and comfort perceptions are very close to those of the DELIGHT2.
Landing in the mountains or in turbulent zones, the STRIKE is easy to pilot with bent legs or out of the Speedbag. During takeoff, running is made easy (light Split-Leg harness), the transition to sitting inside the Speedbag is obvious. In flight, the adjustments and geometry of the harness can be adapted to the morphology and flight posture of each pilot. A seated reclined posture provides excellent body support.
Important safety factor with a 16 cm BUMPAIR certified LTF. Split-Leg auto-stable design (ABS type). The STRIKE is stable with feature greatly appreciated by X-ALPS pilots. The right leg must step through the closed right leg strap: it is a permanently closed safety system.

Upgraded STRIKE 2018!
A few improvements were made on the STRIKE for the 2018 season to have it LTF certified by adding a compact and lightweight BUMPAIR dorsal protector.
What has changed:
The harness container was redesigned to accommodate a BUMPAIR 16 STK, 390g. The harness was certified LTF. Less than 40G during tests.
The total weight of the LTF Certified STRIKE 2018 in size M (Medium) is 2060gr. The previous STRIKE version with the BUMP 14 STK was 2140gr and not LTF certified.
The storage pockets are larger:
The container pocket under the seat is now 9 liters instead of 5 liters previously. Dorsal storage pocket is now 26.5 liters instead of 12.5 liters previously.
The removable “stuff pocket” is replaced by a radio (or camera pocket) integrated to the Speed-Bag instead.
The chest and leg strap fastening system prevent confusion between them.
The look of the harness remains unchanged but the riser zipper changes to green & new Supair logos.
The Speed-Bar pulleys are assembled without the possibility of making a mistake. The cord still runs through the pulley.
The riser sleeve is reinforced at the reserve parachute pocket level. Beware, degradation remain possible during reserve parachute extraction on this very light harness.
Fastening of the Cockpit to the chest trap was improved.
