Conventional kiteboarding harnesses have a major flaw in how they function, and the Ride Engine Carbon Slide Bar solves it exceptionally well. Riders are often forced to rotate their harnesses from side to side to get pull from the proper angle when carving upwind, riding toeside or catching waves. That range of motion requires a looseness in the harness that also allows vertical and torsional movement, resulting in rider discomfort, constricted breathing, pull from the wrong angle and a variety of other issues. The carbon slider bar is a spreader bar and rope that connect directly with the rider’s chicken loop and allows range of motion between kite and rider. This setup is totally unique and provides a smooth and full range of motion, allowing the harness’ lumbar lock technology to work its magic while rider changes angles of attack, carves upwind, rides toeside and slashes waves.

- Ergonomic fit
- Replaceable rope
- Speed-Lock compatible
- Rope system provides optimal angle of attack
- Allows smooth and full range of motion
- Keeps harness locked in place where it should be
- Easy interchange to fixed hook option
