The first ever hard shell harness gets a makeover for 2018
There are a number of hardshell harnesses out there now but Ride Engine paved the way back when Coleman Buckley, the creator of the Ride Engine harness, was still making them to order himself using moulds that customers would send in of their lower backs.
The 2018 harness is now the fourth generation of the Ride Engine evolution and it features the new and improved Fusion Foam which has a softer and more ergonomic foam core that shapes your waist for a solid fit and the new harness also has new closure system with duel webbing straps and a metal clasp to lock it in place. This is a total departure from the single strap and PU tubing that the older Ride Engine harnesses had and it allows you to keep it tighter and adjust it more easily on the fly.
There’s still the same interchangeable spreader bars so that you can switch from fixed to sliding spreaders and the harness comes in two constructions – the basic Hex Core construction and the Carbon Elite which is lighter, stiffer and about as slick a harness as you’ll find.
You can also send Ride Engine your own custom graphics and they’ll print them out so that you can stick them on the back of your harness. Sam Light shows you how below..
