Product Description

LIGHTNESS 2 - ORIGINAL RELOADED 

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. 

FULLY LOADED

Three products, one 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.

COMFORTABLE

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!»

LIGHT

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.

FEATURES

HARNESS FEATURES 

  • Ergonomic Seat Shell: Conforms to the spinal anatomy at the small of the back. Combined with the comfort foam this results in perfect support and maximum comfort.
  • Perfect Aerodynamics: Thanks to the spoiler on the speedbag and self-inflating neck cushion behind the head.
  • Compatible Speedbag Sizes: Each harness size can take all speedbag sizes.
  • Back mesh extends to seat shell: For perfect ventilation and maximum comfort.
  • Ronstan Pulleys: Ball bearing speed system pulleys for low friction and easy speed bar push
  • Fixtures for Drink System: Channel for tube out of the back compartment
  • Urinal-Tube (Relief Tube) Exit: For perfect guidance

Other:

  • Failure-proof 10mm / 15mm harness system with “easy adjust” buckles 
  • Neoprene leg strap covers
  • Reduced cross section for minimum drag
  • Cockpit with detachable instrument panel

ADD-ONS FEATURES 

  • LIGHTPACK 2: The LIGHTPACK 2 rucksack was designed specifically for the LIGHTNESS 2 harness. Both sizes (82ltr and 90ltr) are arranged to carry a normal size paraglider, the LIGHTNESS 2 harness with helmet and the necessary clothing. The compactness and geometry of the system means that the rucksack can be carried equally comfortably by small and large pilots.
  • COMPRESSBAG light: So that the paraglider takes up a minimum of space in the rucksack ADVANCE deliver the LIGHTNESS 2 with a compression bag. The COMPRESSBAG light replaces your paraglider’s usual inner bag and goes perfectly with the LIGHTNESS 2. Compactly stowed equipment is much more comfortable to carry.
  • Alias Alu-Carabiners
  • Carbon Footboard
  • Detachable Instrument Panel 

HANDLE WITH CARE

The ADVANCE LIGHTNESS 2 components have been developed with an uncompromising eye on low weight, and are intended for specialist owners. This puts decidedly high demands on their use and care. A comprehensive understanding of the product and its qualities is essential. Due the choice of materials and their construction the rucksack and harness are definitely more susceptible than normal ADVANCE products to wear and tear resulting from improper use.

*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.
