The Supair ALTIRANDO LITE is aimed at Progression Class pilots (typically flying EN A or EN B) who want the security and simplicity of a traditional upright harness but are wanting to make their kit light and compact. It features a split-leg support system and a seat plate. The harness reverses to form a backpack, and it inflates in the air to give you certified airbag back protection that appears large and effective.
The material choices have been made more for durability than for weight-savings. This is wise given that most of the pilots who will use it may still be clipping the occasional thorny bush during flying (see the video below). This is also essential when your back protection relies on the integrity of the fabric.
Lightness, Comfort, Passive Safety and Pre-Inflated Airbag
- The ALTIRANDO LITE is a light, comfortable, fully reversible harness. It was designed to live up to the expectations of hike&fly enthusiasts as well as pilots looking for a journey in the mountains. This harness is also suitable for local sites flying with minimal equipment. The ALTIRANDO LITE features all the characteristics of a harness with high passive safety, including a pre-inflated airbag.
- The Altirando Lite harness is a great combination between toughness and lightness thanks to an efficient choice in materials as well as an optimised development. Reversible hike & fly harness : fully-equipped backpack for hiking and brand new harness design for an even more enjoyable flying experience. The perfect companion to travel light and equipped.
- The Altirando Lite features a new airbag, pre-shaped straight out of the box thanks to a Nitinol hoop. This airbag is immediately reliable. The “Alti Lite” harness had great results during crash tests. Compared to the ALTIRANDO 3, the volume of the backpack has been improved and is fully suitable for light gliders in terms of capacity.
- Hybrid structure with the advantages of a harness with seat plate and “split-legs” design, allowing great comfort as well as an enjoyable flying behaviour : “nice & easy”. Fastening the harness is done by two buckles (frame/passer-by). Quick, easy and safe !
- The Altirando Lite is a progression harness which means a high level of passive safety. Easy and intuitive transition from running to sitting. The harness is very stable but does not withhold the glider’s performance. The speedbar is easy to use thanks to efficient positioning of the pulleys.
