Light pod harness for XC pilots looking for some comfort coupled with small weight.
Soul 2021 is a light and comfort harness designed for XC flights.
Soul 2021 compared to its predecessor, it is basically a completely new harness – only its purpose is similar.
The basic goal of this design was improving the pilot’s comfort in long flights, while keeping its small weight. Due to light materials the harness weighs just 3,5 kg in M size.
Ventilated backrest and a new, ergonomic seat with profiled seatplate 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 locked properly. The harness is equipped with a 15 cm thick, certified airfoam.
Integrated rescue chute container is located on the back, behind the protector. Release handle is fixed in easily accessible area on the right side of the harness.
The pod improves aerodynamics of the harness and protects the pilot against cold. Its four-point length adjustment allows for any footrest inclination as well. Complete with integrated cockpit equipped with a detachable windscreen it is closed in two points only.
The cockpit has an additional, detachable instrument panel, equipped with easily accessible safety knife. Locking scheme of the pod ‘reminds’ the pilot to clip in the chest strap, too. There is a ballast pocket under the seat plate.
The harness has the Ronstan 20 pulleys installed, improving the speedsystem operation. The automatically inflating fairing in the rear part of the harness has greatly improved its aerodynamics.
Certificates: EN1651, EN12491 i LTF 09.
One colour scheme is available.

I was impressed by the Soul 2021, it’s an easy harness to live with. The lower weight makes it less cumbersome on the ground while in the air it feels comfortable, stable and with good authority.
Combining low weight with everyday comfort and usability it’s a great choice for leisire pilots.
