The RANGE X-ALPS embodies the class of ultra-lightweight pod harnesses – a class that unites features that are nearly impossible to combine. Together with input from our X-Alps athletes and feedback from convinced RANGE X-ALPS2 pilots, we have succeeded with the RANGE X-ALPS3 in perfecting its coveted predecessor.
Designed for hike-and-fly competition and XC, Skywalk say the X-Alps 3 is small and light but also comfortable, “features that are nearly impossible to combine!”
The RANGE X-ALPS3 was designed primarily for weight-optimized XC pilots who prefer compact equipment. Accordingly, the geometry and the seat shell were designed for high flying comfort, which can be enhanced with numerous features. The harness can be flown in a reclining as well as in an upright position. The adjustment can be easily adapted to conditions during flight. This way you feel safe flying even in turbulent air, and in the case of a disturbance, you can quickly straighten up and assume a compact body position.
The aerodynamic silhouette keeps you powerful and efficient during extended flights and long glides. The longitudinal stability of the harness can be additionally increased by means of stabilizers. This feature is a useful tool, especially for high performance pilots, to stay on course with maximum efficiency.
Light. Compact. Innovative.
Every space has been used wisely in the development of the RANGE X-ALPS3. The optimally arranged storage compartments provide ample space even on long trips. Although the weight starting at 1.95 kg and the pack size are extremely small, we have placed great emphasis on easy handling. Due to its intuitive handling, the RANGE X-ALPS3 is suitable for both Hike&Fly competition pilots and XC pilots.
Thanks to its large protector, the PERMAIR technology offers high passive safety and rounds off the overall package perfectly.
Whether you are a Hike&Fly athlete, XC pilot, vol-biv adventurer or travel enthusiast – with the ultra-light XC harness you will enjoy the highest comfort on long distances, easy ascents on your Hike&Fly tours, and reliable safety thanks to PERMAIR technology.
