Manera Magic wax – Ultra sticky

Manera Magic wax – Ultra sticky

Super sticky surfboard and SUP wax to really keep your feet locked on

After a year of research & testing, the ultimate weapon to improve your strapless & SUP level is now OUT! Being not sticky enough and not working on pads, we found that standard Surf wax was not designed for either SUP or Kitesurf because when you paddle on a regular surf you can’t have a wax that is too sticky against your body. One thing that SUPer or kitesurfer don’t care about. So we developed the MANERA “Magic Wax” especially for strapless kiteboarding & SUP use.

Here is why the Manera Magic Wax makes the difference:

– Extremely sticky
– Works on pads
– Doesn’t melt in the sun
– 100% natural ingredients – non toxic
– Our wax is handcrafted with love in Biarritz, France
– Don’t be afraid of strapless moves or radical SUP re-entries anymore!

Instructions:
– Dry and clean your board and pad
– Apply Manera base coat wax (even on pads) and then the Ultra sticky layer

2019 Manera Union Harness

2019 Manera Union Harness

The Union utilises advanced manufacturing processes, allowing it to be far lighter than other harnesses on the market. It is based on the Exo’s core principal of load dispersion and offers extreme comfort, reliability, durability and unrivalled weight characteristics.

Ride with the Union today and get the ultimate in support from a lightweight harness.

The best way to see if this harness is the right one for you is to try one on. We stock many harnesses at our shop on the beach in Camber. You can call us 07563 763 046 to check if we currently have this item in stock.

Check out our handy guide to maintaining your harness, and all of your other equipment, here.

Harness Features

Feather Weight

Weighing in at just 1.1 kilos (medium size, no spreader bar). You’ll want to be careful this harness doesn’t blow away on a windy day! The UNION is one of the lightest harnesses on the market. It stays light even when wet, as it doesn’t absorb water. The new Union is almost weightless on your body; you won’t even notice you are wearing it!

 

Comfort is paramount in any harness, the UNION uses a single injection mould to make a one-piece foam backing. This makes it exceedingly durable, as there are less parts to be glued or stitched together. It absorbs far less water and is much lighter than the multiple foam layups used in some harnesses.

The Energy Dispersion Plate works in the same way as the ground-breaking Energy Dispersion Frame that we pioneered four years ago. The UNION integrates the plate inside the harness and it is directly connected to the spreader bar to ensure it takes 100% of the load from the kite.

This creates unrivalled comfort by dispersing the pressure around your back, using a snug fit and following a heavily researched outline to ensure the optimum support. By diffusing the load around this plate and the spreader bar it takes any stress off the softer parts of the harness, such as the foam, thermoform and stitching, this makes the harness even more durable and reliable!

 

Because there’s nothing worse than a harness that rides up during your sessions, we developed the DOWN HOLD SYSTEM, an asymmetrical attachment that distributes the forces downward. Secured in its original position, the hook does not ride back up.

 

The TUCK FLAPS further assist the DOWN HOLD SYSTEM using the flaps positioned on the ends of the spreader bar and inserted into the harness. Once the straps are tightened, they are compressed and locked. By stiffening the connection between the harness and the buckle, they prevent it from riding up.

 

 

We wanted to avoid unpleasant lateral contraction of the harness on the chest, which is why we adapt our spreader bar to harness sizes.

A well suited spreader bar will pull along both sides of the harness. A spreader bar that is too small will pull with an acute angle, putting pressure on the rider and causing troublesome pain.

 

Manera Exo Harness

Manera Exo Harness

The EXO harness has been developed to optimize load distribution and thus prevent the rider from having misplaced pressure points.  This is why we worked with a human kinetic science lab to help us on this project.

Their scientific approach and knowledge of human morphology enabled us to create a harness providing a level of comfort that was previously nonexistent.

 

 

Harness Features

 

The EDF is a hexagonal structure with varying degrees of thickness. It is directly connected to the spreader bar through the straps and buckles.
Thanks to its shape and structure, the pressure is spread over a much wider area of the back. Thus it responds better, continuously, and more smoothly. By being less concentrated on a small area of the back, the EDF protects the user and avoids any unwanted muscular effort to offset the bad traction.

 

This material has been developed to be integrated into body armors designed by the Royal Air Force for its pilots.

This material is made out of thick nylon threads assembled in a very tight way, it offers outstanding abrasion resistance and extreme durability. This innovation extends the lifetime of the MANERA harnesses.

Two leash releases are integrated into the EXO harness, allowing you to trigger your leash easily whether you are right or left handed. The leash can also be loose and slidable, or clamped between the two rings.

Manera Eclipse Harness

Manera Eclipse Harness

Having worked on ergonomic designs for a while, our goal was to push our frame concept to more stiffness, allowing a better support of the back & a lower fit. But something 100% hard was not an option: Our back needs some adaptability & human morphology is unique.
So here comes the ECLIPSE, a skilful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.

 

2019 Manera Eclipse Harness Features

 

The Adaptive Shell stiffness shades from hard in the center area to softer on the edgesThe stiff center-belt prevents the harness from folding and compressing your body while preserving a good lumbar support. The softer outline preserves intuitive mobility and adaptability.

It results in a shell that is forgiving where you need flex and stiff where you want support.

The Adaptive Shell stiffness shades from hard in the center area to softer on the edges.

 

The gel foam disperses pressure evenly & efficiently to provide a “pillow comfort”, much appreciated during long sessions

It creates a different sense of feeling while riding as it moves along with your movements, therefore the contact with the harness is more intuitive & it prevents any rash or rubbing discomfort.
