The Armor Custom Fit
The Armor Custom is our top of the line product, its shell is made of carbon fiber and offers many options for personalization. Too see the most recent creations check our Instagram and Facebook.. *During checkout with this item $15 will be added to cover the shipping of the impression kit that is included.
The Armor is a harness based off a carbon composite shell. The rigidity of the shell works brilliantly at distributing the force from the kite evenly over the entire area of the harness. They are so efficient at spreading load that I have been able to make the harnesses about 25% smaller than regular ones, decreasing weight, and increasing the range of movement. The final detail that really sets them apart is the option for custom graphics and colors. We inlay graphics directly into the shells so riders can get something that matches their style.
To get the custom fit we will send you a kit that you can use to copy the curves of your back. You then send it back to use and we will use it as a guide to create the carbon fiber shell of your harness.
Our harnesses currently to not come with spreader bars but pretty much any brand should be compatible with our harnesses.
"I just wanted to let you know that although I've been dealing with a wedding and no wind recently, the harness is amazing. The first time I wore it, the thing fitted me so snugly that I didn't do the bar up tight enough and the bar popped up over the velcro/neoprene front part when I was dragging back to my board. The harness still didn't move though! Since I strapped myself in properly it's been perfect, plus my back has been getting better and stronger too. Whether that's the harness or me concentrating on it more I don't know, but either way, I'm stoked."
"My Engine harness Lets me progress further and push the limits of kitesurfing, thanks! You rock."
"This is some sick shit homie".
"Coleman, so pleased with my harness, had another great session on it today, can't imagine going back to an ordinary harness."
"Thanks so much for making something so brilliant. I am super happy with how it felt on the water yesterday and I am sure my back will be thanking me (and you) in the long run."
"Rode my harness for the first time yesterday... The pull is so well spread out you don't even realise you're wearing it... Awesome work. Thanks again"
"Beth and I love our new custom fit harnesses. They are so incredibly comfortable and supportive. Yay for you Coleman!"
"The harness felt so good. I can't believe what I've been missing."
"The time you take is well worth waiting for. If you ever stop making harnesses please let me know so I can buy enough to last the rest of my life. I never want to feel the pinch of a standard harness again. Thanks so much for thinking outside the box!"
"Just to let you know that I have received the harness. Mate, you've got some mad skills. Thank you so much. Couldn't have said it better in the typed letter, it looks like it will serve me well!!"
"Harness is working insane. A lot of people have asked how to get one and are amazed at the concept on construction. Super comfy. Keep up the good work."
"Engine harness is unreal. Super comfy and does not move when riding. Would never go back to a regular harness now"
"I've got a bit of an understanding of functional anatomy and I can comment on why this thing works so well. There are a bunch of guys here, experienced kiters who do waves, using seat harnesses to save their ribs. I've been there, seat harnesses suck bigtime, because they shut down the connection between legs and torso, and actually damage the back rather than protect it. (Think someone with weak neck muscles wearing a neck brace to protect their spine, leading to even weaker neck muscles coz they're not getting worked).
Same with the hip. There are complex connections between the torso and legs, and the leg muscles are major supporters of the lower back. The (myofascial) connections run thru the lumbar where the harness sits. The solidity of the Engine allows the lumbar to relax, and allow full communication between upper torso muscles (obliques etc, incl the lats and thus the arms). Soft harnesses not only press up on the ribs and cause tension in the abdominals and serratus (lower back!!!), but especially require the lower back muscles (quadratus, lats, spinal erectors) to work hard to hold it in place. I get much more freedom in the legs because my lower back is relaxed and supported. Leg freedom means more freedom on the board.But it also means less stress being transmitted into my back.
I end a session energized, not trashed.
Happy back, happy rider."
