Manera Exo Ballistic Black
The Manera EXO harness was launched in 2013 as the first harness using a rigid structure toÂ maintain the riderâ€™s back.Â It is the fruit of a very long research & development processÂ in collaboration with a human kinetic lab and the worldâ€™s best team riders.
Developed in close collaboration with a Human Kinetics Science Laboratory, the MANERA harnesses optimise load distribution, which significantly enhances riding comfort thanks to a brand new technology: the EDF (Energy Dispersion Frame).Â
By preventing your body from counterbalancing the pressure points with muscle contractions and unnatural posture, the MANERA harnesses really reduce the riderâ€™s fatigue and backaches. As an ultimate expression of innovation, the EXO harness provide an unrivalled comfort feeling enabling you to ride tirelessly for hours.
Technology behind Manera EXO Harness:
When we launched theÂ EXO harnessÂ twoÂ years ago, our close collaboration with a
human Kinetics science laboratoryÂ gave us aÂ new approachÂ of this product andÂ resulted in aÂ technological breakthroughÂ compared to what existed on the market.
For 2017Â we have continued to work on theÂ same technologies to bring them to anÂ evenÂ higherÂ level.Â Changes were made in both theÂ structureÂ and theÂ materials,Â improving both comfort &Â durability on the EXO.
TheÂ look & durabilityÂ of a harness are veryÂ important aspects and we wanted toÂ improveÂ both of them.
Our design team has been looking for theÂ best possible materialsÂ in terms ofÂ look,Â colorsÂ andÂ durability, including RIP STOPS,Â PU, 600D, SOFT TOUCH and PREMIUMÂ NEOPRENE, all chosen toÂ match wellÂ togetherÂ and all tested to resist to theÂ mostÂ extreme conditions.
This materials research makes the harnessÂ lookÂ sophisticated and modern, far awayÂ from the regular EVA thermoform you can findÂ on the market. Plus, the EXO harness isÂ nowÂ stronger and more resistant than ever.
By preventing your body from counterbalancing the pressureÂ points with muscle contractions and unnatural posture,Â the MANERA harnesses reallyÂ reduce the riderâ€™s fatigue andÂ backaches. As an ultimate expression of innovation, the EXOÂ & SENSO harnesses provide anÂ unrivaled comfort feelingÂ enabling you to ride tirelessly for hours.Â
Amongst various analyses, fitting a pressureÂ sensor blanketÂ enabled us to directlyÂ visualize how the forces are spread. OnÂ this 3D graphic of the pressure distributionÂ it is easy to see that, thanks to the EDF,Â theÂ forces remain very low in the centralÂ area. Conversely pressures are locatedÂ at the bottom of the harness whichÂ rests on the pelvis toÂ provide betterÂ support to the loads created byÂ the traction of the kite.
