I worked with Coleman Buckley to design a harness that addressed the ergonomic needs of the kite surfer while addressing manufacturing processes and scaling. We started with Coleman’s initial custom harness design, taking hundreds of molds from his inventory and utilizing 3D scanning technology we developed a base that most accurately fit the widest range of users. Our goal was to create a contoured hard plate harness to distribute load evenly across the lumbar and hips and lock the harness low to the riders back allowing the widest range of motion during riding.
