Our Access harnesses (Airbag / Back) have been used for many years across the globe by paragliding schools instructors and pilots discovering the activity. With insightful feedback from resellers and pilots, we worked on improving the Access’ passive safety, durability and handling in flight and on the ground.
We aim at making the instructors’ mission easier and freeing the pilots’ minds so that they can focus exclusively on learning the fundamental skills that paragliding requires without worrying about their gear.
The parachute pocket features a handle with double rod to reduce unintentional opening while ground handling. The Access 2 Bump offers a shock absorption system consisting of a brand new high-efficiency foam protection under the seat. The harness is still equipped with a Mini-bump protection located between the parachute and the backrest, completing the overall protection system.
Our R&D team worked on the speedbar passage for greater fluidity and to offer an effortless installation. The harness also features a pocket to store the speedbar so that pilots will not be bothered by it during ground handling sessions.
The radio storage pocket and ventral protections have been reinforced as well. The Access 2 inner walls on each side now include large storage pockets while giving the pilot a great feeling of safety.
The overall aspect of the harness has been redesigned to give it a modern look. No need to embark on the durability/weight debate : The Access 2 remains made with heavy-duty Cordura fabric but is lighter than the first-generation Access ! The harness range of sizes now includes an XL-size for tall pilots. Now, you only have to choose which version, Airbag or Bump, will get to be the companion of your or your student’s progression !
