The Karver II picks up the concept of the shoulderless harness, first introduced by the Karver. This concept has proven its capabilities in terms of comfort, safety and ease of flying. It became lighter, simpler and more comfortable, but also more modular, similar to the Kruyer II, with which it shares the fastening system.

Harness life & use

The life of your harness depends on how often and how it is used. Mechanical stress and friction gradually degrade the properties. U.V. rays and humidity can also lead to accelerated ageing.

Normal period of use: 10 years. Caution: This duration of use is indicative. A harness can be destroyed the first time it is used. A check every 2 years will determine whether the product should be disposed of more quickly. Between uses, proper storage is essential.

The operating time should never exceed 10 years.
