We know that comfort and safety are crucial to our flying. Sometimes you need to practice groundhadling, sometimes we just go for the evening flight and as soon as the season comes, we are looking for the equipment for comfortable XC flights. And for that we need the right harness. Modern, widely usable, safe and comfortable, just like TRANSFORMER.
TRANSFORMER is a harness with two basic modes. The classic "cocoon" harness for long flights, remove the speed bag and we have a classic, versatile harness which is suitable for recreational flying to cross-country flying.
TRANSFORMER is designed for pilots whose start-up ambition is to end in beautiful and long flights, with the ability to transform with the pilot from classic mode to a modern, aerodynamically shaped harness with speed bag.
TRASFORMER is a modern, technologically advanced harness with a racey cut, comfort, simplicity and accessibility from our COMFORT LINE series.
TRANSFORMER main features are:
- Very easy on/off speedbag system
- Option to classic fly without speedbag or foot stirrup
- Low weight – carbon seat board and foot plate, lightweight speedbag (size L is only 4,6kg with speed bag and carabiners)
- Slim strap system
- Simple and fast set up with Easy Custom Tuning
- Modern stable geometry (optimized hang point height and distance)
- 16 cm back protector
- Integrated rescue container
- Functional back pocket with radio pocket and hydration system - camel bag © compatible
- Under seat ballast pocket
TRANSFORMER is delivered in M, L, XL sizes. Please check the size table. The table cannot respect all the possibilities therefore it is highly recommended to try the harness on before you buy it – mostly for pilots who fall between sizes.

We're having fun with complicated things. It's not about doing complicated things in a complicated way, but in a complex product to bring simplicity and elegance. We should have made a harness that pushes the pilots away from the classic harness to fly in the speed bag harness. We know that flying with the cocon is a bit different and we know that sometimes we do not want this change (for a while) - we want to practice take offs in the meadow, we want to play in the wind. So how to make such a harness? Difficult and easy at the same time, we have done TRANSFORMER. Smart and the only one of its kind in the paragliding skies.
