IN THE AIR
The Quest is very comfortable for pilots who fly in the semi-reclined to fully laid-back position. The geometry is designed to filter out turbulence and reduce the risk of “falling” towards the deflated side in the event of an incident, aiding recovery of the wing.
Nevertheless, the Quest is reactive to pilot input and, once placed at the desired angle in the turn, provides solid lateral support for precise and effortless thermalling. The precision and ease of turning also make it an ideal partner for discovering the dynamic side of flying — wingovers and other freestyle manoeuvres are intuitive and easy to learn with this harness.
Unlike many open harnesses, the Quest was designed with accelerated flight very much in mind. The accelerator is kept in place by a convenient system and sits ready for use at any moment (we recommend using the standard OZONE accelerator with this harness). Once the speedbar is applied, the chassis flattens out in a more aerodynamic position, in which it is also easier to pilot the wing “modern style” with rear risers and embark on long transitions for XC flying.
