- Paragliding mode with back protector & under-seat reserve
- Full featured backpack for speed riding / flying
Speed Flying / Riding
When you want a compact and sleek harness for speed flights, zip off the back protector and reserve compartment for a low profile and comfortable configuration.
Paragliding / Soaring
Adding the ultralight inflatable pack protector and reserve compartment makes the SWITCH an ideal choice for extended soaring flights, or any application where a reserve and protector is desired. The protector is inflated using the included inflation bag, allowing quick and easy setup with excellent impact protection.
With ski / snowboard carry system, compression straps, hydration access, and a comfortable and ergonomic support frame, the SWITCH pack is a joy to carry. The reserve compartment is secure while in pack mode, but allows easy extraction in the case of a reserve deployment. In flight, the back storage compartment can be compressed via zipper to reduce the storage profile when desired.
Harness Structure & Design
The SWITCH harness is a hybrid design, with a split leg & bucket seat combination for comfortable support and precise piloting. It is a smooth transition from running, kiting, or skiing, to seated flight. Easy-access side pocket, an out-of-the-way speed bar system, and the durable two buckle closure make it clean and easy to use.
The SWITCH is sold in two versions: Slick, and Complete:
Slick Mode: Harness only, without back protection and reserve compartment. Delivers with speed-bar system and Edelrid Foras carabiners.
Complete: Harness, speed system, carabiners, plus inflatable back protection with bag-pump (to inflate the back pro), reserve container, and reserve risers including two Peguet carabiners.
