HIGH PASSIVE SAFETY ( SAFE-T-BAR, BUMPAIR )
A HARNESS FOR EVERYONE. GREAT HANDLING IN ALL FLIGHT CONDITIONS

The SKYPPER is precise and stable when steering via seat-plate control, and provides accurate feed back from the wing.

The reserve parachute pocket located under and beyond the seating area does not impede with the BumpAir’s effectiveness to operate while keeping the reserve parachute handle fully accessible.

Carbon fiber seat-plate and foot-plate, this harness is obviously targeting Cross-Country and competition pilots wanting a light and compact cocoon.

Equipped with a built-in Speedbag ( Cocoon ), an integrated detachable instrument / cockpit, a Bumpair 15 cm. back protector, a new seat and back support, the SKYPPER will surprise you by its comfort and abilities in all flying conditions.

A cleverly designed Speedbag enables the pilot to easily enter and exit the cocoon; the integrated cockpit is judiciously located, enabling for a direct visual contact of its instrument panel.

The SKYPPER is equipped with a self -adjustable double stage speed-bar in addition to the pulleys with interchangeable bearings ( self-locking pulleys optional ).

An easily accessible ballast pocket ( 5 L ) is located beneath the seat.

COMMENTAIRES :

– One will choose the SKYPPER to have a lighter performance harness with a high level of built-in passive safety for easy piloting provided by the seat-plate.

– Compared to the DELIGHT2 : the SKYPPER is an easier harness to use, the seatplate brings a more intuitive piloting without surprises. It is also equipped with a slightly more efficient back protector. The materials used for the harness fabrication (especially the speedbag) are stronger. However, SKYPPER is a bit heavier and bulkier than its counterpart.

– Compared to the SKYPPER FR: the SKYPPER is less bulky and lighter. It is geared to XC flights, while the SKYPPER FR was made for competitors (two reserve parachute pockets) and with a stiff backrest.
