LINK - The CORE harness


June 20, 2023

Rider: Lorenzo Cherubini Valenti

CORE introduces its very first harness, marking this a significant milestone for the company. 

First things first, a harness that provides an excellent fit, is extremely secure, comfortable, and quick to put on. The focus was on innovative simplicity. Simply a good all-around harness. 

Created to enhance riding experience with a perfect blend of freedom and support. Unlike rigid hardshell harnesses, the LINK provides optimal balance with its flexible design, allowing easy movement while maintaining stability.

Medium basic hardness, high wearing comfort

The ergonomically designed flexible back shell of the CORE LINK harness is shaped using CAD technology and based on the 3D shaping of the hollow back. The middle section offers sturdy support, it goes to the sides into thinner and softer wall thicknesses xcxat the edge for pleasant freedom of movement. 

On the inside, a pleasantly soft multi-layer construction made of skin-friendly neoprene and viscoelastic memory adapts to the individual body shape. A thermoformed EVA pad with anti-slip profile supports the mid-lumbar region and reduces the harness skidding. It features an elastic waist belt with a convenient Velcro closure, ensuring a secure fit on the body and facilitating effortless application of the spreader bar. 

Centrally and securely stowed in the front of the waist belt, there is a kite knife to cut the lines and ensure safety in critical situations.

Secure and easy-to-use closure system

The LINK harness is closed via a sturdy stainless steel hook closure, which is hooked into the spreader bar on both sides. Each webbing strap is connected to each other as a loop and can therefore be tightened smoothly. The loose strap ends can be tucked under the elastic covers on the sides. For optimal safety, the LINK features a safety snap preventing unintentional unhooking. To open, simply loosen the straps, unlock the hook closure and release.    


Hook and rope spreader bar interchangeable in a flash 

The LINK can be combined with two different spreader bars, which are available separately. They are easy to install and can be replaced very quickly if necessary. 

Both versions are equipped with a wide thermoformed EVA foam pad that protects the chest against the pressure of the spreader bar, especially when pulling vertically. Pre-curved plastic braces that are inserted laterally, creating a seamless integration, and effectively preventing wrinkles when tightened.
