Arnês Manera UNION
Infos & Characteristics
The UNION utilises advanced manufacturing processes, allowing it to be far lighter than other harnesses on the market. It is based on the EXO’s core principal of load dispersion and offers extreme comfort, reliability, durability and unrivalled weight characteristics.
Ride with the UNION today and get the ultimate in support from a lightweight harness.
ENERGY DISPERSION PLATE
The Energy Dispersion Plate works in the same way as the ground-breaking Energy Dispersion Frame that we pioneered four years ago. The UNION integrates the plate inside the harness and it is directly connected to the spreader bar to ensure it takes 100% of the load from the kite.
This creates unrivalled comfort by dispersing the pressure around your back, using a snug fit and following a heavily researched outline to ensure the optimum support.
By diffusing the load around this plate and the spreader bar it takes any stress off the softer parts of the harness, such as the foam, thermoform and stitching, this makes the harness even more durable and reliable
Weighing in at just 1.1 kilos (medium size, no spreader bar) you’ll want to be careful this harness doesn’t blow away on a windy day! The UNION is one of the lightest harnesses on the market, and it stays light even when wet, as it doesn’t absorb water.
The new Union is almost weightless on your body; you won’t even notice you are wearing it!
Comfort is paramount in any harness; the UNION uses a single injection mold to make a one-piece foam backing.
This makes it exceedingly durable, as there are less parts to be glued or stitched together. It absorbs far less water and is much lighter than the multiple foam layups used in some harnesses.
DOWN HOLD SYSTEM
Because there’s nothing worse than a harness that rides up during your sessions, we developed the DOWN HOLD SYSTEM, an asymmetrical attachment that distributes the forces downward.
Secured in its original position, the hook does not ride back up.
SPREADER BAR SYSTEM
We wanted to avoid unpleasant lateral contraction of the harness on the chest, which is why we adapt our SPREADER BAR to harness sizes.
A well suited spreader bar will pull along both sides of the harness, while a spreader bar that is too small will pull with an acute angle, putting pressure on the rider and causing troublesome pain.
The TUCK FLAPS further assist the DOWN HOLD SYSTEM using the flaps positioned on the ends of the spreader bar and inserted into the harness. Once the straps are tightened, they are compressed and locked.
By stiffening the connection between the harness and the buckle, they prevent it from riding up.

F-ONE Leash become this year F-ONE leashes in order to satisfy all rider’s needs:
A short 40cm leash which will make all foilers and freeriders happy as the leash will no longer drag in the water. It is the leash for all those who don’t unhook
A middle-sized 75cm leash. It becomes our standard and will be sold with all our LINXBAR 4 lines. It’s a versatile leash which will suit almost every rider.
A long 140cm “pure freestyle” leash, thought and designed for all New School riders. The stainless steel hook has been replaced by a pig tail which brings lightness and moreover solidity. This also avoids hand injuries during handlepasses. A swivel has been added to the leash’s base to avoid twists during tricks.
Our leashes are now equipped with our new release handle compliant with AFNOR standards. It has been redesigned to be more ergonomic and facilitates the release.
In order to guarantee maximum safety, the spectra loop under the release handle allow the leash to be adaptable with all harnesses on the market.
Last innovation you can block the handle in an upper position to reset your quick-release in complete tranquillity.

Infos & Characteristics
Having worked on ergonomic designs for a while, our goal was to push our frame concept to more stiffness, allowing a better support of the back & a lower fit. But something 100% hard was not an option: Our back needs some adaptability & human morphology is unique.
So here comes the ECLIPSE, a skillful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want.
STIFFNESS – 90%
LIGHTNESS – 95%
DURABILITY – 95%
Infos & Characteristics
The EXO harness has been developed to optimize load distribution and thus prevent the rider from having misplaced pressure points. This is why we worked with a human kinetic science lab to help us on this project.
Their scientific approach and knowledge of human morphology enabled us to create a harness providing a level of comfort that was previously nonexistent.
