The Swift Zero is the “baby brother” of Swift Race harness. It shares the geometry and the comfort of the Swift Race, but minus features needed by competition pilots, offering more bang for your buck!
Main differences are:
- Rear fairing is now smaller for easier packing, not inflatable, but rather a constant streamlined shape vs. long inflatable fairing of the Swift Race.
- Under the seat integral reserve compartment only vs. additional front reserve container on the Swift Race.
- The flight deck/Instrument panel is removable in favor of changing between harnesses vs. the integral flight deck of the Swift Race.
- The front pod material has been upgraded to a lighter material, which is elastic and sealed against wind and water, insulating from the elements.
Body Geometry – before everything, we have made sure that geometry of this harness is perfect. We worked hard to achieve balance between comfort and activeness. The Swift will transmit exactly what the wing is doing, but in a way which is reassuring and not surprising.
Comfort was the main objective and it was achieved by extensive, padded support throughout the harness. A fully breathable padded back with wide shoulder straps for load distribution help relieve any pressure points which can occur after hours in the harness. The rigid seatplate is covered by dense foam and complemented by load bearing semi-rigid elements integrated into the back of the harness (APCO exclusive) making sure body stays in the optimal ergonomic position regardless of how each webbing adjustment is set up.
