The skywalk RANGE2 - the comfortable performance step-up for your glider!
More and more pilots are enjoying the advantages of a full pod harness.
The wind tunnel optimised competition- and cross country- harness RANGE2 awaits with a wealth of new features, including; a carbon seatboard, ergonomic cockpit, 17 cm foam protector and 5 different sizes from XS to XL. All contribute to form a very harmonious unit.
Oliver Teubert, cross country ace and a significant contributor to the comfortable design of the RANGE2, sums it up:
“A cross country harness not only has to be exceedingly comfortable, every detail has to satisfy. When I am approaching 10 hours in the air, I need to feel totally relaxed and without distraction. In addition, the RANGE2 offers sensational drag values, a real glide advantage for me!”
This statement was confirmed in the Daimler Wind Tunnel, where the RANGE2 boosted the glide ratio of a CAYENNE3 for example, from 9,3 to 9,8, with the 9,3 having already been measured from a prone harness
The competition harness RANGE2 is designed for all pilots who demand maximal performance from their harness, along with the highest level of comfort for hours in the air.
The RANGE2 has LTF certification (DHV) and has been developed especially for competitive pilots and cross country mileage hounds. Our measurements have shown that an optimised, full pod harness drastically reduces pilot drag and therefore considerably increases glide performance.
Some highlights include an integrated, aerodynamically formed cockpit for flight instruments and additional neoprene pocket on the leg fairing for camera, gloves, snack etc.
Even with the implementation of high quality materials and an intelligent belt-buckle-concept, the skýwalk RANGE2 remains a very light harness. In a nutshell, the RANGE2 from skywalk stands out with the following features:
The new, adjustable back part, cushioned with webbing, provides a high level of comfort
The back part is also breathable and fits well to the body, therefore providing ideal contact, yet still enough space
The integrated, aerodynamic cockpit is ideally angled for flight instruments
The rescue container is integrated under the carbon seat board and rescue handle is easily accessed
The internal 2-Step Speed System provides optimal possibilities for acceleration
There is ample storage space on the back
The cushioned leg straps provide additional comfort
The foam back protector insures that the pilot has the necessary protection in his/her back area
Additionally, water ballast and drink system can be integrated
Carabiners are steel carabiners from Austri Alpin
Last but not least, the RANGE2 has LTF certification
