    The best choice for comfort and performance during long XC flight

    The new GENESIS top-end cocoon harness was created for athletes and XC pilots, who want a minimum aerodynamic drag, comfort and safety. GENESIS Harness was resulted by two years of flight tests, research and experiments. We have created many prototypes, to bring the belt system and seat to the perfection.

    We have ensured that pilot always feels comfortable during long flights and do not get tired. At the final stages of development we invited World Cup pilots who assisted us to create the most convenient and comfortable harness system for the competition. Optimal handling, innovative seat concept, streamlined shape, clean profile make GENESIS harness attractive for both for competition and XC pilots.

    The great results are based on the innovative ideas and hard work that bring them to reality.
