Reduced. To the core.
The CORE is the ultimate lightweight harness, built to meet the high demands of mountaineers and Hike/Climb&Fly enthusiasts. In the development of the harness, which weighs only 410 grams, our focus was on: lightness, stability, intuition, and most of all comfort. And without sacrificing safety. The CORE has a modular design and can be equipped with an LTF91/09-approved PERMAIR protector in just a few steps. It weighs a total of only 800 grams, which makes it the lightest harness with permanent protector on the market and is aimed specifically at Hike&Fly-Race-Athletes.
The further development of our first PERMAIR protector generation has a practical inflate/deflate check valve that makes the filling of your protector significantly easier. PERMAIR 2.0 protectors can also be inflated in several ways. In addition to the previously common variant with the inflation bag and compression function, you now have the option to fill your protector in a minimalist way via the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece includes a moisture filter to minimize the introduction of moisture and is included in the PERMAIR Set scope of delivery.
The most common way to fill your PERMAIR protector with air is to use the Inflationbag. Connect the Inflationbag to the valve and blow into the opening. Close the bag by rolling it until pressure builds up in the Inflationbag. Apply more pressure by pumping on the Inflationbag to allow air to flow into the PERMAIR protector. You will feel a pressure increase in the Inflationbag when the protector is completely filled. After that, it is not possible to pump more air into the protector.
Connect the grey part of the mouth piece to the valve. Make sure the HME-filter (heat moisture exchanger) is inside the mouth piece (blue spongy) and start with inflating by blowing inside the transparent opening. The protector is fully inflated once you feel significant resistance of air pressure when blowing inside.
The CORE is a classic loop harness with a high suspension due to its design. This results in a higher roll stability and damped flying behavior in turbulence. This is very peasant, especially with smaller wings.
By deliberately avoiding additional stiffening elements in the harness, it is “free floating” – similar to the hammock principle and thus adapts to the size of the pilot. As a result, a large range of pilots can be covered with one size.
Due to the ultralight design the CORE is not recommended as a harness for winch towing.
With the chest strap adjuster you can significantly change the agility and roll stability, and you have the possibility to reduce the pressure point on your inner thighs by tightening the adjuster.
The speerbar line on the CORE first runs through a pulley and is then held in position and under tension by a ring and the “Cord-Stopper”. This actively prevents the speerbar line from getting tangled. This means that nothing can interfere with the pilot’s field of vision and control area.
