COMFORT & PRECISION, HIGH PASSIVE SAFETY & FULL EQUIPMENT
A technically advanced design harness, aiming at the cross-country and demanding pilots engaged on a regular practice. Inspired by the first SKYPPER, this new one is outfitted with a cocoon in addition to a standard ergonomically fitting efficient top to bottom back protector with a reasonable weight and size for a high performance and precise harness.
Size : S / M / L / XL
Weight : 5700 g in size Medium (harness with back protection, bump, carbon seat plate and foot plate)
Colors : Grey Onyx / Earth
The Skypper 2 frame was designed to work with and be adapted to high aspect ratio wings for stable, precise buffered steering during technical flights while still benefiting from enough onboard comfort to make it an enjoyable experience.
The Skypper 2 is particularly comfortable for extended flights. The backrest is rigid, reinforced and well padded. The seat was precisely adjusted to distribute evenly and lessen all the pressure points.
The Skypper 2 is complete and fully modulable. It is delivered with 2 interchangeable cockpits : a standard cockpit with instrument support and a front reserve container cockpit.
High passive safety: thanks to its thick protection foam, the Skypper 2 benefits from greater shock absorption characteristics than the first Skypper. The overall geometry and structure has been re-designed to improve glider/harness compatibility, from EN-B + (such as our STEP) to EN-D or CCC wings. As a bonus, a tree landing rescue kit was integrated into the harness.
This harness has every accessory a pilot could ask for : a cockpit with great storage capacity and removable front reserve container, Drag chute pocket, multiple storage pockets, ballast container under the seat, profiled carbon fiber seat plate and so on.
The line is taut and optimised compared to the previous version and the speedbag, printed by subliation, is the witness of a daring design. Available in two colours !
“Pilots who upgrade to a high performance wing often find that their lightweight seatboardless harness offers inadequate control for their new purchase. They usually have two options: go for the full-fat competition harness and suffer the bulk of the aerodynamic fin, structural reinforcement and plush features; or ‘make do’ with a harness that makes them tire early and doesn’t truly ‘connect’ with the wing.
The SKYPPER 2 offers a third choice: limited bulk, top-of-the-range features, and a focus on safety and comfort that means you won’t tire in extreme tasks or distance attempts. It might be slightly more weight than your average weekend XC pilot wants to carry from the back-country bomb-out, but it’s certainly worth considering if you’re looking at flying tasks and need good protection, competition flexibility, and comfort in flight.”
