|Location||Fee (per item)|
Our Acro series are robust harnesses that have been designed especially for the requirements of acro pilots. Developing Acro we focussed especially on sturdy, high grade material. Its low suspension and the almost upright seating position, enable the pilot to easily steer by shifting his weight. Additionally the harness provides high seating comfort and back support.

How does the smoke cartridge have to be fixed?
At the outer face, lower back part, there's an eylet attached to the harness. Beyond the eyelet is a deployment cable and the according handle bar is fixed laterally. You need to fix a cord at the smoke cartridge, which has to be inserted into the cable behind the eyelet. Then, to deploy the smoke cartridge, you only need to pull the deployment cable in order to unlock the cartridge cord.
For my rescue system I need a suspension point right on the shoulder belt. Is such a device included?
Yes. Suspension points for the rescue system are placed directly next to both shoulder belts, without connector lines. The harness comes with two connector lines for non-steerable rescue systems, which can be fixed with a screw element.
All belts used for Acro are 45mm broad. Is the seat board reinforced, too?
No, because it isn't necessary! The seat board of Acro and most of our harnesses have a honeycomb structure, thus can not break, as it rather bends due to that special elastic structure.
