AXESS 4 – Elementary Allrounder

The AXESS is the classic ADVANCE beginner harness, and this fourth generation is simpler, more compact and safer than ever before. Alongside the experienced Air-Foam Hybrid main protector we now have, for the first time in an AXESS, removable SAS-TEC visco-elastic soft-foam panels acquired from the world of motor sport. The packed harness volume and elementary features like Balance-Strap, Easy Connect and a natural adjustment system qualify this seatboard harness as an allrounder, where straightforward and trouble-free handling is important.
  • ADVANCE Classic

    The AXESS 4 has all the basic qualities needed for a beginner and allround harness. These range from easy adjustment, a plain and simple closure system, a safe and reliable riser clip-in procedure to the ease of sitting properly after takeoff – and the important standing-up-again before landing.

    Simple and comfortable

    The AXESS 4 is built to be robust. It has a seatboard, and the main protector is now joined by SAS-TEC crash protection. For a harness of this sophistication its packed volume is surprisingly small. When packing, the back section folds snugly to the seatboard, and the Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector also compresses when squeezed in the glider rucksack.

    Fully-functioning protection

    As its main protector the AXESS 4 has the removable ADVANCE Air-Foam Hybrid-Model – now in its third iteration. This protector was originally developed for the AXESS 2, and is ready for its full protecting function before any takeoff attempt. Visco-elastic SAS-TEC components are also installed at the sides and up the entire back. These defend the pilot against impacts and pointed obstructions.

FAQ

fold faq

Why can I take out all the protectors?

If the protectors get damaged, e.g. after a crash, the Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector can easily be changed.

After a landing in water, for example during SIV, the harness and protector dry more quickly and thoroughly when separated than assembled.

Depending on harness size, up to 300 gm weight can be saved if the visco-elastic SAS-TEC soft-foam back protector is removed. Be aware that without the SAS-TEC back element there is no back penetration protection for the AXESS 4 and there can be a small degradation in comfort (back support).

Can I fly the AXESS 4 with a different speedbar from its original carbon version?

Yes. When fitting it just make sure the speed lines are routed in the same way as for our premounted carbon speedbar.

fold faq

Do I have to check anything with the Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector?

No. The Air-Foam Hybrid-Protector automatically develops its full protection within 60 seconds of the harness being released from the paraglider rucksack. For maximum protector life the harness should always be stored completely dry.

fold faq

Can I fly the AXESS 4 with a foot rest?

Absolutely! There’s a matching foot rest as an AXESS 4 optional extra. This is part of the certification and will be delivered with the “Soft” speed loop.
