Design of the Jazz 2018 harness seat, containing reduced, elastic plate is a half-way solution between flexible, "hammock" type harnesses and traditional type with hard seats.
The Jazz was designed for cross country pilots, looking for very light and comfortable harness with foootrest. Main points on the wishlist were improvements in ergonomics and further weight reduction. Very small weight and dimensions when packed into a backpack make mountain hikes a pleasure. Due to light, carbon seat board as well as other light materials the Jazz weighs just 2.92 kg in M size. Comfortable, ventilated backrest and a new, ergonomic seat with profiled board ensure maximum comfort during the flight.
Large adjustment range makes sure that every single pilot will be able to find his/her optimum. Redesigned strap scheme brings great stability and significantly reduces danger of launching with leg/chest straps not clipped in. The Jazz is equipped with a certified, 15 cm thick airfoam protector. The rescue chute is located in the frontcontainer which is equipped with additional instrument shelf, housing the safety knife too. Under the seat plate you can find a small waterballast pocket. It can be used for anything else, too. The harness features easily replaceable, ball-bearing Duroll pulleys for better speedsystem operation.
