NEO is launching a new version of the Ultra-light harness for paragliding and speedflying: the String. Ideal for mountain flying, Hike and Fly, and flying trips. The NEO String is precise and stable; you can enjoy the ride in thermals and even go XC, thanks to genuine comfort. The primary goal of the String is to provide a high level of comfort in an extremely lightweight design, without compromising durability. Every element of the harness is precisely cut and assembled for an ergonomic shape with true dorsal support and comfort for the legs. The material selection is also critical, with each component chosen without regard for cost. The String is adjusted to your size using a velcro strap, simply and efficiently.

The ventral strap and legs are linked directly to the main carabiner. With just two clicks, you’re ready to fly. When your fingers are cold every second counts at the summit, and when you’re tired on a steep slope, ease equals safety.

This new version features several innovations for this harness category:
– ultra-light and also more durable due to the new NEO Dyneema fabric specially developed by one of our European suppliers.
– the new « Balance System » trims your back position in flight.
– the removable leg cover can be added as an option: the « Balance System » makes it possible:
– more comfortable and supple leg straps due to the KOROYD/3D MESH technology.

A removable Certified Airbag will be available soon.

The NEO String is EN certified. The internal Dyneema structure actually offers much more strength than required for certification. The String has been designed to use NEO/AUSTRIALPIN Stratus carabiners, which are delivered as an option, but any other automatic carabiner or connector will work. You can choose to keep your wing and harness permanently attached, or simply slip it on at take off and fasten the legs each time. The NEO String is easy to use, and light to carry, and will accompany you on any trip to any location to enjoy the flight!

300g of comfort, durability and simplicity.

When Hike&Fly flights are extended by thermals, a longer flight can mean longer exposure to lower temperatures at altitude. NEO has created the solution: our R&D team has developed a leg cover for the String: attach it with one Velcro strap in the back, pass it through the carabiners, and then fix the carbon plate lines; within 2 min the String Cover Leg is ready to fly. In addition to being super easy to install, it’s as light as outerwear pants but much warmer in the air.

The « NEO Balance System » integrates in the new String harness and automatically trims the position of your back depending how your legs push on the Leg Cover carbon foot plate: It creates a mini cocoon harness that weighs less than 750 grams! (The String harness 325 g + Leg Cover 410 g).

The material choice yields an ultralight and ultra-durable piece of equipment. One of our European suppliers has created a light Dyneema fabric for us: Dyneema fibers offer the best ratio of strenght/weight/durability. All NEO products are designed and constructed to be light, but also durable.

An eyelet guides the speed system through the leg cover. The NEO front rescue container can also be added.

Enjoy your flight without the frustration of needing to land because you are too cold: now you can fly as long as you want!
