EDGE Harness

EDGE shares the principles and design approach common to traditional APCO harnesses. It will appeal to pilots who prefer a classic harness with stylish design, total comfort, maximum security and loads of extras. It does not incorporate any hard elements such as lexan plate, allowing reduction in volume, weight and insuring trouble-free long-lasting service (no plates or elements easily broken or requiring careful handling).

EDGE options include redesigned airfoam protector – which we believe has better absorption qualities than former airfoam protector. Test results conducted by DHV confirm that our standard 15cm Airfoam protector is fully in line with DHV requirements when used in combination with Edge type harness.

It has also been confirmed by DHV that Edge type harness fully conforms to DHV harness certification requirements.

Foam Protector and Lexan Sheet
The EDGE has a pilot protection system, combining the usual airfoam type protector with a lexan sheet (47143) which aids in spreading the load over the absorbing area of the airfoam and a Polystyrene side impact protector which offers the maximum protection available to a paraglider pilot today.

Test results conducted by DHV confirm that our standard 15cm Airfoam protector is fully in line with DHV requirements when used in combination with Edge type harness.

Side Protectors
It is fitted by opening the zip running along the bottom of the harness, below the seat board, and connecting it to two rubber bands through the slits made in the side protector (make sure to put the rubber band through the slit from the flat side of the side protector to the round side of it). Slide the side protector to its place and close the zip running along the bottom of the harness.

The EDGE has an integrated emergency parachute compartment, designed to the standard specifications.

It is ideally suited to take the range of APCO Mayday parachutes which have proven themselves time and time again, saving hundreds of pilots over the years
