Lightness, precision and safety are the key words of the STRIKE 2. It is the worthy heir to our long experience in hike and flight harnesses, especially in competition. The STRIKE 2 is the result of our STRIKE X Alps 2019 and has the same main features as our STRIKE 1.
Sizes:S, M, L, XL
Weight: 2025 g in Medium size (standard mode)
Compared to the STRIKE 1, it is more ergonomic, more comfortable and more flexible thanks in particular to an inflatable protection ( option ). It is designed for competition and leisure hike and fly pilots. It can also be the main harness for cross country pilots looking for lightness. Ease of installation and safety with the closing of the harness on the two attachment points of the glider. The harness opens completely and closing is done directly on the carabiners without any other buckle and on only two points.
The new geometry allows better transmission from the wing to the pilot, thin and sensitive, adjustable by the chest strap. The comfort is complete with a removable protection / comfort plate, and a geometry of the speedbag attachments that allows a natural and effortless position of the legs. As an option, a new certified inflatable protection saves weight (65g) and especially the volume carried in the bag. Ideal for competitive hike and fly. For landings in mountains or in turbulence, the harness can be piloted seated, legs bent, it remains manoeuvrable and comfortable. On take-off, the run is easy (light harness with leg straps), the seated passage and the installation in the speedbag are obvious. In flight, the adjustments and geometry of the harness allow adaptations to the morphology and flight positions of each pilot.
The STRIKE 2 has been designed to be flown with dyneema connectors as well. This lightens the material and makes the leg straps fixed as for the X-Alps harness. You will then have to put on the harness like a climbing harness. This is the “competition” mode. The size of the STRIKE 2 has been revised, with the addition of size XL, certified up to 120 kg. This allows pilots from sizes 160 cm to 200 cm to be covered with precision and a good fit.

The STRIKE 2 is a very light harness. It has been reinforced compared to the STRIKE 1, however all uses outside the flight domain are liable to wear out the harness prematurely. SIVs are not recommended with this harness. The STRIKE 2 is a harness intended for experienced pilots, and we do not recommend it as a first cocoon harness.
