Kitesurf Harness Manera HALO


The project of the Manera Kitesurf Harness Halo started from a deep analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the current harness technologies.


Basically there are two concepts in the market,  the softshell (the more flexible harness) and the hardshell (the rigid shell harness):

The Softshell

The softshell provides perfect adaptability to the user’s body and movements when kiting.
Main issue is that it becomes distorted under the pressure of the kite. Consequently, the user’s sides are compressed.
It has good adaptability, but not so good  hold.

The Hardshell

On the contrary, the hardshell does not become distorted under the pressure of the kite, so the user’s sides are not compressed.
Problem is that it has small adaptability to the user’s body type and movements.
This makes a very good hold, but small adaptability.

The first concept behind the Manera Halo is separating the two functions of “effort management” and “comfort”and we did this by our patented technology Adaptive Shell.

This way we created a harness that adapts perfectly to your body type and your movements, while offering unparalleled support.


The Adaptive Shell


This patented technology is made up of two main parts: The Adaptive skin and the Hardshell.


Adaptive skin

The Adaptive skin is a support skin made of a flexible material providing the user maximum adaptability and freedom of movement.

It is directly in contact with the body; its function is to provide comfort.

The Hardshell is a rigid arc; it prevents the harness from bending and thus compressing the user’s body under the strong pressure of the kite.

It is not in contact with the user nor with the back of the Adaptive skin; its function is to manage the mechanical pressure that the harness receives.


The second concept behind the Manera Halo is creating an harness with all components replaceable

The different components of a harness are often non-replaceable (sewn straps, glued foams, etc.) and certainly not recyclable.

Sometimes a worn or damaged part forces you to throw away the entire product.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and in order to provide better customer service, all HALO components are assembled without glue or seams so that each part is easily replaceable.

We stock spare parts and are able to replace each of them. The ARC spreaderbar, the sliding rope, and the kitenife are included with purchase.
