Wiretec Technology:


The Apex Select 2017 now also comes with the new Wiretec Technology. A new patent pending line setup, designed to spread the load evenly and banish irritating pressure points. Torsion free construction ensure the best freedom of movement. The thermoforming is anatomically shaped into the lumbar area

Cross Link:

The cross over webbing reinforcement allows a complete back part load spreading.




Extended Soft Edge:

A new, extended soft edge that bends sideways at the hips and ribs for a more forgiving feel, enhanced by a special foam padding.



Split Edge:

The dived buckle plate allows the harness to stay close to your body and to transfer all forces equally.

A special highlight is extremely soft neoprene edge, which surrounds the entire harness. The fit is extremely comfortable whether you are riding in a wetsuit, rash vest or on bare skin. The best support combined with good flex.

The Full Protection Hook Mounting protects from rib injuries and prevents bruising. Reinforced leash attachment rings and a rear handle for assistance during launching are other features that make kiteboarding simply easier.

New safety slider grab handle to attach safety leash also makes it perfect for handle pass tricks.

With its closure at the harness hook, the strap only needs to be adjusted once.

The Push Button Spreader Bar also makes it easy to get in and out of the harness. The system ensures optimum safety even under extreme conditions.
