Supair EVO LITE Reviews
I've been using another well-known brand of harness, but it never felt comfortable. It felt like sitting on a garden swing in flight, and was not at all comfortable walking round the hill or ground handling. even though it as the correct size and adjusted correctly. I saw the Flybubble review on the Supair Evo Lite and booked a slot for a test fit at their offices to see what I thought.
It sounds cheesy but the minute I sat in the Evo Lite I knew I had to change harness, the difference was incredible! I felt like I was sitting in the harness, rather than on it; an extremely comfortable and a well-thought-out design. Stephen at Flybubble then did the adjustments on the harness with me, and fitted my reserve on the spot.
Once again Flybubble customer service was 100%, everything explained and differences demonstrated. They really go out of the way to make sure you get the best experience and professional advice with buying new equipment. They do not up-sell, but listen to you, and what you want to do, and tailor the advice to your requirements.
After purchasing the harness I then decided that I might as well buy a new rucksack; they knew exactly what size I would require and showed me the full range. I walked out with a new harness, fully explained, fitted with my reserve, all ready to fly.
I have now flown the Evo Lite a few times and it was money well spent for the product and service. The comfort is there and I now feel attached to the wing and do not slide around in the harness. It also has the option of expanding it in the future with a pod bag and stirrup, so has a good upgrade path for me in the future.
Once again thanks Flybubble, particularly Stephen who did the setup on my harness.
Buying good quality equipment is only half of the purchasing process; having it professionally setup and explained is just as important to get the most out of it.
Thanks Flybubble, I will be back.
Sadly, on my appointment day Stephen was unwell, and Nancy bless her went above and beyond to rearrange her personal time to facilitate me. Nancy was excellent in suggesting a few suitable harness models to match my previous experience, and desired type of flying. After sitting in several, the harness which felt totally right for my body shape, budget and requirements was the excellent Supair EVO LITE. Supair are a very long established manufacturer which is evident in the practical and ergonomic design features seen in this harness. The Evo Lite is modern, lightweight, and made from very durable materials. All materials are of high quality and the stitching is brilliant. The buckles are super slim and securely click together with a satisfying easy motion. Many other smaller buckles are covered with neoprene to keep them sleek and hidden. There are plenty of adjustments in all axes, and with proper adjustment this harness felt extremely comfortable, I was sat in it for well over an hour and I felt content with nothing digging into me - it was a shame to step out of it! The seat board is shape formed carbon fibre, and there is elastic fitted within the rear of the harness to retract the speed-bar when not in use. The 17cm foam offers plenty of back protection and the side panels and outer shell ensures you feel protected 'within' without fear of slipping out. Both the large rear, and single side pockets are plenty big enough to store your gear, and there is a well positioned hole to pass your drinking water tube through from the rear. The large reserve container is positioned under the seat and contains a little flap that can be folded down and fixed to make the cavity a reduced size for smaller reserves. The reserve container flaps are handily numbered in order to aid when repacking, and the handle is sturdy, with pins covered to deflect any stray lines from getting caught. Besides this harness being extremely comfortable and within my budget, other reasons I chose this was because Nancy explained I could also fit an additional foot stirrup to rest my feet, and/or fit an additional pod to cover my legs making the whole harness more comfortable and aerodynamic as future upgrade options if and when I desired.
Nancy's knowledge and passion shines through whilst she comprehensively talked through the equipment explaining all its functions and adjustments. We even did a simulated reserve deployment where I pulled the reserve and Nancy caught it before it unraveled, I thought this was a valuable action to practice. It was clear she had a deep understanding of this harness having used the Supair EVO Lite herself whilst test flying the newer GIN ATLAS 2. Nancy even purchased back the new bridles and karabiner’s I had recently previously purchased but not used on my old harness to ensure I wasn’t left with kit I didn’t need; this was a bonus as it also helped reduce the final price. Nancy also recommended for my reserve to be professionally repacked, and arranged for both the harness and reserve to be repacked and posted back ready for me to fly the following weekend. I really cannot wait to get out and fly in it now ;-)
I cannot thank Stephen and Nancy enough for their knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and accommodating service, that was exactly what I needed. Also, a massive thanks to Greg for his continued production of awesome, instructive, yet calm, and reassuring, humorous and passionate ‘from-the-heart’ videos which are truly-great educational, and inspirational tools for helping you decide which is the right gear for you. Flybubble video archives hold a wealth of unique personal opinions and knowledge from their long and admirable experience which every pilot can learn from to improve their understanding and skills. I feel I now have the right equipment to match my experience, and the best supportive guidance to get me back into flying.
Thank you so much Flybubble team!
I will continue to learn, and certainly come back when I need your help again. :-)
