AXESS 3 AIR - Compact Allrounder

The AXESS 3 AIR is a very light and comfortable compact harness, with a Hybrid Airbag. As a genuine allrounder this harness is ideally suited for both leisure pilots and beginners. The AXESS 3 AIR makes pure enjoyment of hours-long thermaling flights.

Easy handling

Much freedom of movement on the ground and easy sliding back into the seat after takeoff – these are two of the strengths that show off the AXESS 3 AIR. In addition, redesigned harness geometry makes adjustment simple, and improved back support offers excellent comfort.

Compact & light

The AXESS 3 AIR has an exceptionally small packed volume, due to the highly compressible Hybrid Airbag. Delivered with a carbon seatboard as standard, this allround harness has an impressively low weight of around 3.5kg. The AXESS 3 AIR’s elegant look is a result of ADVANCE 3D design technology.

Always ready

The Hybrid Airbag automatically takes on its working shape and full volume immediately after unpacking. The foam framework inside the protector makes sure that it directly and independently fills with air while still on the ground – without the need for continuous airflow. This novel system provides a high level of passive safety, from the first to last moment of your flight.

Flying the AXESS 3 AIR with a foot stirrup

If you want to fly the AXESS 3 AIR or SUCCESS 3 with a foot stirrup, ADVANCE recommend that you use the Advance Foot Stirrup which has been specially designed for them. It is the only stirrup to have been included in the LTF 91/09 testing process.

The high attachment point gives you maximum comfort. Your legs are supported without effort and you can better enjoy long flights. The fastening at the seatboard area and the elastic webbing make it impossible for the stirrup to get caught up with the reserve.

ADVANCE recommends that only the ADVANCE speed system is used when the foot stirrup is fitted. Connect the stirrup with the speed system as explained in the harness manual; the speedloop will then always be easy to pick up with a foot in flight.

Tip: A combined stirrup and speed system always makes it easy to pick up the speedbar in flight.

Certification

Advance AXESS 3 AIR (PAST MODEL) Reviews

All the wasted years! on 17/07/2017
  • Star Rating
I had the opportunity to try my new AXESS 3 AIR harness out on Sunday, and have to say that its improved my flying in ways I hadn't even considered.

The snug fit was absolutely comfortable and translated as more information with less chucking about - best of both worlds. Speed bar was much lighter and more accessible.

Fit also seemed to improve ground handling with body movement and feedback to the wing more direct. On top of that greater freedom of movement meant better footwork and generally being less flustered without straps dangling everywhere and slipping off my shoulders.

The harness seems easier to slip into landing position and, unusually for me, managed to keep the seat off the ground with a half dozen landings including cross slope.

Packing was easier, the wing better stowed, the pack more comfortable, lighter and posture so much better that I was looking around thinking about conditions rather than toiling along face down watching sweat dripping off my nose.

It's like I've just jumped up a level as a pilot, and am feverishly anticipating the next opportunity to go flying.

I wouldn't have chosen this harness without a prolonged harness fitting session, although this was actually the first one Carlo at Flybubble suggested.

The build quality is clearly excellent, with no compromise due to its feather weight and I really couldn't be happier, so many thanks for the patient assistance.
