Manera Halo Harness

By separating the functions of “effort management” and “comfort”, the Manera Halo Harness adapts perfectly to your body type and your movements, while offering unparalleled support.

It all started from an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of current harness technologies, regarding in particular the softshell (the classic flexible harness) and the hardshell (the rigid shell harness):

The Softshell

The softshell provides perfect adaptability to the user’s body type and movements.
But it becomes distorted under the pressure of the kite: The user’s sides are compressed.
It therefore has good adaptability, but little hold.

The Hardshell

The hardshell does not become distorted under the pressure of the kite: The user’s sides are not compressed.
But it has no adaptability to the user’s body type and movements.
It therefore has a very good hold, but little adaptability.

By separating the functions of “effort management” and “comfort”, we have created a harness that adapts perfectly to your body type and your movements, while offering unparalleled support.

Manera Halo Harness SIZECHART

OUR EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN HARNESS MANUFACTURING ALLOWED US TO DEVELOP THE HALO SIZING JUST RIGHT.
In order to offer the best experience to all our customers, we have added two sizes: S+ and M+. These two new sizes are the exact same harnesses as the standard S and M, except there are equipped with a longer spreaderbar.

Why?
The body can take two different shapes:
– A rounder shape (someone with a big belly)
– A more oval shape (someone with larger hips)
For the same waist girth, we can then have two completely different morphologies. By integrating longer spreaderbar, the S+ and M+ harnesses are
made for people with larger hips.

 

PRODUCT TECHNOLOGIES

Adaptive shell

Our Research and Development approach is to create the best possible product, so we have sought to use the advantages of the two current technologies while eliminating their faults. This is how the “Adaptive Shell” was born.

This patented technology is made up of two main parts: The Adaptive skin and the Hardshell.

By separating the functions of “effort management” and “comfort”, we have created a harness that adapts perfectly to your body type and your movements, while offering unparalleled support.

Adaptive skin

The Adaptive skin is a support skin made of a flexible material providing the user maximum adaptability and freedom of movement.

It is directly in contact with the body; its function is to provide comfort.

Hardshell

The Hardshell is a rigid arc; it prevents the harness from bending and thus compressing the user’s body under the strong pressure of the kite.

It is not in contact with the user nor with the back of the Adaptive skin; its function is to manage the mechanical pressure that the harness receives.

Durability

A product is as durable as the least durable part of its components.

The different components of a harness are often non-replaceable (sewn straps, glued foams, etc.) and certainly not recyclable. Therefore, sometimes a worn or damaged part forces you to throw away the entire product.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and in order to provide better customer service, all HALO components are assembled without glue or seams so that each part is easily replaceable.

We stock spare parts and are able to replace each of them. The ARC spreaderbar, the sliding rope, and the kitenife are included with purchase.

Direct contact

Thanks to our Adaptive shell technology, and in particular the very adaptable Skin part, there is no longer a need to use large, thick foam for comfort. The HALO’s ultra-thin neoprene foam provides several advantages over a conventional harness:

A more direct feeling
. Less bulky contact
. Lighter, even when in the water

Fitting

In order to optimize the customer experience, we have added two sizes: S+ and M+. These two new sizes are in fact the standard S and M harnesses equipped with longer spreaderbars.

Why?

Bodies may assume different shapes:
. A more rounded shape (someone with a big belly)
. A more oval shape (someone with wide hips).

For the same waist size, we therefore have two completely different body types. By incorporating longer spreaderbars, sizes S+ and M+ are more suitable for people with wider hips.

Leash attachement

Our kite leash attachment point is located towards the front of the harness, allowing easy and direct access for release in case of an emergency. Attached to the straps on the right-hand side by default, the metal ring can easily be moved to the left straps.

W A R N I N G : NAISH leashes are not adapted to the size of our metal ring, and it could present a safety hazard during release. We are currently working on a new version of the ring.

Arc spreaderbar

The ARC is a new generation spreaderbar developed to offer a more precise, comfortable navigation experience, with a harness that is better held in place.

Clip-system

The ARC’s clip system is locked once closed, allowing smooth and precise navigation without having any slack in the bar.

Tuckflaps 2.0

The tuckflaps are now more rigid and directly molded with the spreaderbar. Once inserted into the harness, not only do they more efficiently prevent the bar from going up, but they also have an anti-compression feature which prevents kite power from folding the harness around your ribs.

SST core

The ARC is constructed with a sturdy stainless steel core capable of withstanding loads of 800kg, which is well above normal kite standards.

Hook/Sliding

The ARC is easily convertible between the standard hook and the sliding rope. The soft part on the back is easily removable with any flat tool, even a coin.
