As a result of the testing done by members of the Forward Sailing Team during the 2010 season, and thanks to the study of trapeze-induced back stress performed by Bertrand Guillo, the physiotherapist of the French national Sailing team, Forward Sailing is introducing a new harness which brings a key innovation : a belt with adjustable, integrated and interchangeable lumbar support. This technology, already used in sports such as horseback riding, motorcycle riding or personal workouts, relieves the compression of the lumbar vertebras by applying a light pressure all around the belly.
Our new harness was designed with attention to details and offers: Simplicity and lightness. It’s made with a technical Soft textile leaf reinforced in key areas (anti-abrasion aramide-Nylon, 50 mm webbing strap), this harness is very easy to get in and out of, and smooth enough not to impede movements.
Comfort and freedom : the design of the harness offers great back bracing, total freedom of movement for arms and legs thanks to well designed openings. Particular care was brought to the pelvic area with neoprene coating. Perfect support of the lumbar area is ensured by an adjustable, integrated and interchangeable waist belt. The wide stainless steel buckle avoids compression of the pelvis. The lateral lines enable a micrometric adjustment to adapt the harness to the body shape of the sailor.
This harness is available in two sizes : S/M and L/XL.
