Altirando LITE: reversible harness
- Light and durable
- High level of passive safety thanks to its full protection
- Pre-inflated airbag (during take-off)
The Altirando Lite harness is a great combination between toughness and lightness thanks to an efficient choice in materials as well as an optimised development. Reversible hike & fly harness: fully-equipped backpack for hiking and brand new harness design for an even more enjoyable flying experience. The perfect companion to travel light and equipped.
The Altirando Lite features a new airbag, pre-shaped straight out of the box thanks to a Nitinol hoop. This airbag is immediately reliable. The “Alti Lite” harness had great results during crash tests. Compared to the ALTIRANDO 3, the volume of the backpack has been improved and is fully suitable for light gliders in terms of capacity.
Hybrid structure with the advantages of a harness with seat plate and “split-legs” design, allowing great comfort as well as an enjoyable flying behaviour: “nice & easy”. Fastening the harness is done by two buckles (frame/passer-by). Quick, easy and safe!
The Altirando Lite is a progression harness which means a high level of passive safety. The easy and intuitive transition from running to sitting. The harness is very stable but does not withhold the glider’s performance. The speedbar is easy to use thanks to the efficient positioning of the pulleys.

The Supair ALTIRANDO LITE is aimed at Progression Class pilots (typically flying EN A or EN B) who want the security and simplicity of a traditional upright harness but are wanting to make their kit light and compact. It features a split-leg support system and a seat plate. The harness reverses to form a backpack, and it inflates in the air to give you certified airbag back protection that appears large and effective.
It’s perfect for low airtime pilots who want more security as they explore the many Alpine hike-and-fly sites, or like the idea of travelling with a smaller paraglider bag. It’s also suitable for regular pilots who want to calm down their overly agile wing somewhat, and like the convenience and durability of a well made reversible harness for recreational flying.
