A French family-business that has been involved in kiteboarding since the beginning, Manera develops kiteboarding gear for demanding riders: “We believe that the product is the heart of a company, and as a result most of our efforts are spent on the research, development and testing of the collection. We create products so nobody has to get out of the water because they are cold or uncomfortable.” Julien Salles answers our questions about the brand’s redesigned luggage collection, additions to the wetsuit line, harness fit and more.

This is how long it took to gather and coordinate the four Kamchatka photoshoot essentials: The best local team, four world class riders, logistics (visas, permits, tickets, boat, tents, vehicles…), two photographers and a cameraman with unwavering dedication.
MANERA will be launching its new movie on Monday, October 14th. The trip took place in Kamchatka (Russia) with Maxime Chabloz, Camille Delannoy, Paul Serin & Mallory de la Villemarqué. Premieres will happen around the globe before the launch. Best one to date!
DESIGNED IN 3D
When the industry standard widely develop 2D patterns and try to fit it on a 3D body, we decided to break new ground and take the opposite direction. We used computer design to model good-fitted wetsuits in 3D, then we employ an innovative software that converts it into a precise 2D pattern for the factory. It creates a natural, second-skin fit that makes the MANERA wetsuits stand out.
TKB Product Review: Manera Eclipse Harness | surf setup August 1, 2019 Source: thekiteboarder.com Manera Says: Having worked on ergonomic designs for a while, our goal was to push our frame concept to more stiffness, allowing a better support of the back & a lower fit. But something 100% hard was not an option: Our […]
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.
