Description

Skyline ZD FR

Productnumber: 23102

General

In collaboration with Gerd Dönhuber (german national team pilot), the SKYLINE HG harnesses Zero Drag FR and Zero Drag SPEED have been reworked and refinements have been made in a few areas. The new features are being incorporated now in series production.
The back plate was shortened in the front section. The main benefit of this is to allow greater upwards freedom of movement for the shoulders, making it easier to straighten up and re-position and providing better visibility when thermalling. In addition, this change to the back plate improves the aerodynamic form in the shoulder region.
• The side pockets were replaced by 2 front pockets with large internal pouches, making it easier and more comfortable to reach them during flight.
• A 3D fabric / mesh is used for the entire front section, which ensures better air circulation.
• Adjustable padding is used in the torso area, allowing the amount of torso support to be altered and reducing shoulder pressure.
• The knee section also has mesh and is double-padded. It no longer has the knee padding used previously, which gives a larger opening to the foot section to make it easier to get into after launch.
• The cut of the shoulder neoprene was optimised for better aerodynamics and warmer shoulders/upper body!
• The distance between the tow loops was reduced and optimised according to the mounting for the tow release.
• The front zip was lengthened and fitted with a tension relief closure, which makes it easier to close the zip and makes it last longer.
• The foot section is fitted with genuine leather protection.
• The hang point for the leg loops can be set in various positions according to the pilot's build.


Zero Drag FR

The Zero Drag FR got the rescue container above the thighs integrated into the harness. The Zero Drag FR is very slim.
The Zero Drag FR is based on the Zero Drag Racer, which was proved for years and always has been enhanced. Due to new conclusions in manufacturing and fitting ,the patterns of the harness have been optimized and adjusted to pilots who set value on performance and speed. The enhanced aerodynamic shape of the ZD FR is a feast for the eyes and will thrill the hearts of competition pilots.

Several special features make the ZD FR unique in design, comfort and performance.

The Zero Drag FR is state-of-the-art in top performance gear of XC and competition cracks.
