Looping is a light reversible harness, comfortable and fully-fledged. Its novel reverse system separates the rucksack completely from the airbag protector, which on one hand keeps the protector from damages during transport. And on the other hand it once more improved the large and comfortable rucksack. Additionally the airbag protector has an excellent deceleration rate.

Reversible harness Looping

Conception

Looping at „rucksack mode“ is enlarged by an expansion pocket, while at „harness mode“ that flexible material tightens the harness back part aerodynamically.

That smart reverse system design separates rucksack and protector completely, for the first time ever. Up to now this part of a reversible harness had always been rucksack and airbag protector at the same time – thus was exposed to possible damages during transport. Despite its outstanding unique feature weighs only 3.7 kg at size M. And the airbag protector has a deceleration rate of less than 20 g – the best result we ever achieved.

Looping is equipped with conventional webbing and a T-Lock buckle.

Looping provides an ideal, uncommitted seating position, rendered possible by its newly designed main suspension. Combined with individual adjustment of shoulder and back part, every pilot is going to find a seating position, which ideally suits him. The geometry of Looping meets the demands of ambitious thermal pilots and of hike & fly pilots, providing an outstanding canopy feedback!

FAQ

How large is the rucksack capacity of Looping?

The rucksack capacity of Looping is large enough to carry the whole equipment (paraglider, harness, clothes, etc.).

I would like to use Looping not only for hike & fly tours - is it a fully-fledged harness?

Yes, absolutely. Regarding comfort and flight characteristics Looping is a reversible harness, which absolutely keeps up with the attributes of common harnesses. It is comfortable, has an airbag protector and many useful well-thoughtout details.

Do I need to handle a reversible harness with more care than a common harness?

In general reversible harnesses need to be handled slighty more careful, yes. As the rucksack of a reversible harness is at the same time part of the airbag protector, you should take care of it in order not to damage the airbag during transport (cableway, airport etc.).

But Looping BLUE / GREEN has a reverse system that separates rucksack and protector, which already helps to keep the protector from damages during transport.

Can I integrate my rescue parachute into the provided deployment bag with release handle?

Yes. The deployment bag meets current LTF requirements, thus is compatible with all common rescue systems (annular and cruciform parachutes).

Does the airbag already have a protecting function during take-off run?

The airbag protector of Looping fills up very quickly, thus provides protection already during take-off run. In order to optimise that protection, you can pre-fill the airbag simply by shaking it up before take-off.
