Manera Sliding Spreader Bar

29 Nov , 2018  

The new MANERA Sliding bar offers more freedom of movement and range of motion than the fixed hook. It lets you rotate your body without twisting the harness, for a smoother connection with your kite. The harness doesn’t ride up: as the connection with the kite is closer to the body it doesn’t have the leverage effect of a fixed hook. It is a good alternative for foiling, strapless, surfing.

Discover the R&D behind the new Manera Eclipse adaptive shell harness

8 Nov , 2018   Video

A skillful balance between stiffness & flex that brings support where you need it and the freedom to move the way you want. We started the ECLIPSE project three years ago. The idea was to increase the rigidity of our frame concept which would allow for a better support of the back & a lower fit.
Our product development process is always the same: Build a prototype, give it some water-time, re-design it and build another one… Until it feels perfect in every condition. Watch our video and understand the work behind the ECLIPSE harness.

John Hadley’s Diary on Battle of the Bay 2018 Edition

11 Oct , 2018  

Speaking of starts, Sunday started with an amazing sunrise which meant no chance of rain. Then, it was time to get to the site and get your preparation started. Finally, it would be off to the ‘big start.’ Before the start, though, there was socializing and pretending nerves were everybody else’s problem.
