RRD Thrive Harness 2018

The Thrive harness has a more vertically curved shape. This makes it the choice for users with a more curved lower back or riders that prefer a more upright riding position, like free-riding and down the line wave riding. The new padded spreaderbar with stabilizer wings locks the bar in place and eliminates the hook riding up and protects your ribs.

Your choice of harness need to fit your style of riding, stance, local conditions and the natural shape of your back. Therefore our harness range suits different needs, rather than claiming each of our harnesses do it all for each and everyone. RRD takes a unique approach to developing harnesses with two main factors in our designer’s mind: The shape of the body and the forces created by the pull of the equipment, whether it is about kiteboarding or windsurfing. As an example, it’s easy to understand the difference in the body position and thus harness requirements between overpowered riding, fun freeriding or wave riding.

The RRD waist harness range comes in different types of fit, suitable for different body shapes and differences in riding style. Nonetheless, for the first time this year, we are proud to introduce our all-new SHIELD, RRD’s first low profile carbon outer shield harness, made with the stiffest and lightest material, that gives the most support without sacrificing weight.

No more excuses, try them out and decide for yourself!
