HIKE & FLY COMPETITION HARNESS
The STRIKE came out of our X-ALPS 2015 design. It is a harness fully dedicated to Hike & Fly competitions. Its great inboard comfort makes it much more versatile than its light weight would let one assume.

Sizes : S / M / L
Weight : 2140 g (Medium)
INTUITIVE AND PRECISE PILOTING WITH REMOVABLE MINI-SEAT PLATE,
WEIGHT WITHOUT THE MINI-SEAT PLATE: 2020 GR. ( DELIVERED WITH: 2140 GR. ).
The STRIKE can be used without the mini-seat plate and without the removable pocket ( the size M weighs 2020 g). The easily removable BUMP’AIR can be carried separately or may not be used at all in flight. Without it the harness’s weight looses 560 gr. And drops to 1460 g.
The optional 250 gr. BUMPAIR ultra light, enables a complete harness to be flown at a weight of only 1710 gr. without the mini-seat plate, and 1840 gr. with it. This ultra light BUMPAIR is efficient on a first impact but is not certified because of its degrading properties on a second impact.
The structural design of the Split-Leg harness with a removable mini-seat plate brings clean and precise steering sensations. The piloting and comfort perceptions are very close to those of the DELIGHT2.
Landing in the mountains or in turbulent zones, the STRIKE is easy to pilot with bent legs or out of the Speedbag. During takeoff, running is made easy (light Split-Leg harness), the transition to sitting inside the Speedbag is obvious. In flight, the adjustments and geometry of the harness can be adapted to the morphology and flight posture of each pilot. A seated reclined posture provides excellent body support.
Important safety factor with a 14 cm BUMPAIR certified LTF. Split-Leg auto-stable design (ABS type). The STRIKE is stable with feature greatly appreciated by X-ALPS pilots! The right leg must step through the closed right leg strap: it is a permanently closed safety system!

SAFETY WARNING STRIKE
The STRIKE is a particularly light and high performance product for Hike & Fly competitions.
In the event of a reserve parachute extraction, it is possible for the rescue’s risers, or the opening shock, to damage the harness.
We do not recommend taking a SIV course with this harness.
In the scenario of a very rapid descent, and/or a strong centrifugal force developing, it is possible for the harness’s left or right lateral walls to tear along the legs. Only the models bearing the “A1” index, and produced before May 2017 are concerned.
Concerning these harness labeled “A1”: we recommend you to send the harnesses back to us to have the lateral walls reinforced. Read about the return protocol by following the link below.
All these damages are not structural but will render the harness useless.
Tous ces dommages ne sont pas structurels mais peuvent rendre la sellette hors d’usage.
SUPAIR is committed to mend the lateral walls, and try to repair (without warranty) the reserve parachute issue if possible.
