COMPETITION HARNESS FOR HIKE AND FLY
Lightness, precision, and safety are the keywords of the STRIKE2. It is the worthy heir to our long experience of hike and fly harnesses, especially for competition. The STRIKE 2 comes from our STRIKE X Alps 2019 and it takes up the main assets of our STRIKE 1.
Delivered in Comfort Mode as standard. Contact us for other configuration pricing options.
Sizes: S / M / L / XL
Weight: 2400 g in size Medium (High comfort mode, as delivered)
PRECISION: INTUITIVE AND PRECISE CONTROL
SECURITY: TWO CLOSING POINTS. MINI PLATTER CONTROL. APPROVED IN 1651
Compared to the STRIKE 1, it is more ergonomic, more comfortable and more flexible thanks in particular to inflatable protection (optional). It is intended for competition and leisure walking and flying pilots . It can also be the main harness for cross-country pilots looking for lightness .
Ease of installation and safety with the closure of the harness on the two attachment points of the wing. The harness opens completely and the closure is done directly on the carabiners without any other buckle and on two points only.
The new geometry allows better transmission of the glider to the pilot, fine and sensitive, adjustable by the spacing of the ventral.
Comfort is complete with a removable comfort plate, and a geometry of the speedbag attachments that allows a natural and effortless position of the legs.
As an option, a new approved inflatable protection saves weight (65g) and above all the volume carried in the bag. Ideal for competition hike and fly.
For landings in the mountains or in the event of turbulence, the harness can be flown seated, legs bent, it remains manageable and comfortable.
On takeoff, the race is easy (light harness with leg straps), the seated passage and the installation in the speedbag are obvious.
In flight, the adjustments and geometry of the harness allow adaptations to the morphology and flight positions of each pilot.
The seated position with the back tilted back provides excellent support.
The STRIKE 2 was designed to also be flown with dyneema connects. This lightens the material and makes the leg straps fixed like for the X-Alps harness. You will then have to put on the harness like a harness. This is the “competition” mode.

- New speedbag adjustment geometry. The legs are supported in flight.
- New geometry of the harness, allowing a more horizontal flight, with a centered back.
- The harness is more resistant: approved for 120kg instead of 100kg. Reinforcements on the emergency riser attachments.
- Revised sizing with the addition of size XL. This allows pilots from 1.6m to 2m to be covered with precision and a good fit…
The STRIKE 2 is a very light harness. It has been reinforced compared to the STRIKE1, however, all uses outside the flight envelope are likely to wear out the harness prematurely. SIVs are not recommended with this harness.
The STRIKE 2 is a harness intended for experienced pilots, and we do not recommend it as a first cocoon.
