Kolibri EVO: the legend lives on!

The Kolibri EVO includes all the features that have made the Kolibri so successful since 2014, and incorporates improvements and innovations that still make it the reference in the world of light cocoon harnesses.

In the niche of bivouac and expedition flights, the Kolibri remains unbeatable thanks to its unrivaled comfort and high storage capacity.

Type of practice

  • Front pocket - Front elastic pocket under the emergency container for external batteries.

  • Connection of reserve risers - Connection for all types of risers (Lifts not provided).

  • Camelback Fixation - The dorsal pocket integrates a fastener for the camelback.

  • 45g Carbon Ring - A Kortel Design exclusivity. The carbon ring, is twice as light as a carbon plate and much more durable!

  • T-Bone Links - T-Bone links as standard (strength >2400 DaN) for a safe and light connection to the wing.

  • Light carabiner connection - New geometry, enabling the T-Bone links to be replaced by lightweight carabiners.

  • Secure reserve connection - The connection for the rescue is an integral part of  the cocoon closure.

  • Comfortable speed bar - The pressure of the speed bar is diffused throughout the hips to reduce hard spots.

  • Integrated Vario support - Attachment for mini-Vario integrated in the shoulder.

  • Adjustment by sliding Splice - All the settings of the harness are made by an adjustable, simple, lightweight and extremely reliable splicing system.


“The Kolibri Evo is without doubt one of the best choices for vol-biv flying with its large storage that doesn’t compromise safety. Until now there has been nothing similar, although Ozone have now released the BV1. The latest version makes that great concept a little easier to live with day to day and more comfortable in use. It’s not a radical redesign, more a polish of an already beautifully crafted piece.“

— Marcus King CROSS COUNTRY MAGAZINE 229 (full review)


The life span of your harness depends on the frequency and type of use. Mechanical stress and friction gradually degrade the properties. UV rays and humidity can also cause accelerated ageing.

Normal duration of use: 10 years.
Warning: This period of use is indicative. A fifth wheel can be destroyed at its first use. A check every 2 years will determine if the product should be disposed of sooner. Between uses, proper storage is essential.

The time of use should never exceed 10 years.
