Lightness 2 - Lightweight Reversable Harness
Well-proven – now perfected. The LIGHTNESS concept created a new category of harness, and now this second generation takes the best of the original and adds to its safety, comfort and style. With a weight from 2.8 kg the LIGHTNESS 2 is a light harness, but, in its current form, it completely satisfies the needs of the ambitious cross country pilot. It has an integrated reserve, certified protector and improved aerodynamics; and again comes with its own rucksack, now including a COMPRESSBAG light.
3 products, 1 concept. With its LTF certified foam protector and built-in reserve system the LIGHTNESS 2 is a fully operational harness for XC and Hike&Fly pilots who like to travel in comfort with light equipment. In the package are the harness and its LIGHTPACK 2, including the COMPRESSBAG LIGHT.
LIGHTNESS 2 geometry has been further developed, and it now has an ergonomic seat shell which adapts itself to the small of the back. This provides perfect back support; and pressure points become a thing of the past. Feedback from our test pilots: «The most comfortable reclining harness in the history of ADVANCE!
It was possible to save weight when developing the LIGHTNESS 2 thanks to refining the design and choosing the right materials, without compromising the well-known ADVANCE quality. The new COMPRESSBAG LIGHT allows the paraglider to be packed very small in the LIGHTPACK. Put together these make a up light but complete package.

*The hammock principle means that the harness adapts itself exactly to the pilot’s body shape. The seat surface width becomes that of the pilot, and this dimension sets the height of the carabiner suspension points.
Important: Pilots in the following intermediate height ranges (165 to 172 cms - S or M harness, and 178 to 183 cms - M or L harness) are recommended to test both relevant speedbag sizes for the best fit. The correct speedbag length is fundamental to comfort and a flawless shape.
