ADVANCE has been producing the highest quality and innovative harness designs since 1988.
The Advance harness range covers everything from entry level to competition and light weight hiking. The IMPRESS pod style harness is by far the worlds #1 selling competition/XC harness. They are all re-known for being of the highest quality, comfort, design, ergonomics, style and durability.
The prices on Advance harness are also amongst the lowest on the market despite them being the highest quality and innovative design - why ? Because Advance is one of only 2 glider manufacturers that actually designs and produces their own harness's - the rest have theirs contract made in China or Eastern europe or have harness's re-badged as their own !
Just like the gliders, they are the result of lengthy research and design process by the world best pilots and designers. You, the pilot, are sitting right there with World Champions, X-Alps Winners and World Record holders when flying Advance harness's ! All are created by unique 3D design software giving them the most efficient, aerodynamic and homogenous look on the market !
Models in the range cover all types of flying from Hike and Fly (EASINESS), lighter weight reversible (PROGRESS 2), general flying (SUCCESS 3 and AXESS 3) and XC/Comp (LIGHTNESS 2 & IMPRESS 3).
