omfortable high-performance XC harness for long flights.
It's finally here! After a long development process we are pleased to announce the release of our new high-end XC harness. The Forza 2's safety, stability, and sleek lines make it ideal for big distances.
- Designed for long and demanding XC missions
- Anatomically sculpted seat and backrest
- Wind-tunnel tested aerodynamic fairing
- Two reserve compartments
- High comfort, stability, and passive safety for demanding XC conditions
The Forza 2 is a sophisticated, "all options" harness that is comfortable and easy to fly in real XC conditions. We spent over three years of development on this project and the many prototypes have undergone hundreds of hours of test flying by some of the world's best pilots. Our mission for the Forza 2 was to create an aerodynamic, durable, and highly comfortable tool for serious XC missions. This new design is the highest performance traditional-fairing harness we have flown.
The Forza 2's rigidity is carefully engineered. The backrest is anatomically designed to support every part of the pilot's body. Foams of varied thickness and density are arranged for exceptional lumbar comfort. The seat has a small plate which provides the ideal level of rigidity and excellent weight shift control, with a support zone that is comfortable to rest in for many hours. A massive protector covers the entire back, and the seat protector is low profile but highly effective.
The harness closure has color coded buckles and the pod closure system protects against forgotten leg straps.
PERFORMANCE IN FLIGHT
The large rear fairing profile improves the glide and stability of the harness. Many accelerated flight tests were conducted to refine the shape, angle of attack, and functionality of the pod and rear fairing.
The pod and the pod closure are secure and functional during intensive speed bar usage. The pod offers an excellent compromise between weight and durability.
Two huge & easily accessible side pockets, a zipped pocket above the pod, a large and convenient cockpit (also easily accessible from the top in flight), battery pocket, under seat storage, and a large rear storage area with hydration pouch and access / mounts for hydration tubes, and a ballast outlet / catheter exit point under the seat. There is also a tree rescue kit and line cutter.
Two reserve compartments with a magnet closure system provide a large opening while maintaining a smooth and aerodynamic outer surface.
The rescue handles are accessible and easy to grip, while also being well-integrated with the outer surfaces. It is possible to use only one of the reserve compartments if desired.
Harness weight includes: Harness + Edelrid carabiners + complete pod with 3-bar Speed-system + reserve bridles and maillons + seat protection + rescue handle + safety knife
- Cack pocket volume: 27.5 liters
- Under the seat pocket volume: 7.5 liters
- Certified EN 1651
- Seat protector weight 550gr (EN Impact max peak: 34g)
The Forza 2 package includes:
- Seat and back protectors
- Dual rescue handles plus cable and foam to secure unused reserve compartment
- Dual reserve bridles, with 8mm reserve maillons
- 3-stage speed bar
- Safety knife
- Tree safety kit
- Edelrid carabiners
The modular conception of the Forza2 means that it is possible to combine any frame and pod size according to the pilot's morphology. For example you can order a size M harness with a size S pod, or any other combination. Simply make sure you select the correct pod colour when you place your order.
For the moment only the M harness is available, with pods S, M and L. The S and L size harnesses will be released shortly.
Production times for this model are around 20 days.
