Lightweight Hardshell Kite Harness by Ride Engine

Ride Engine is the brand that invented hardshell harnesses and keeps setting new milestones in the harness evolution, season after season.

Why choosing a Hardshell harness

The goal of a hardshell harness is to give lumbar support and to reduce any unwanted twist or rise while kitesurfing.

Compared to the Ride Engine Saber V2, the Lyte has a stiffer structure and is available in 2 options:

The Wakestyle Team Review & Opinion

We've been big fans of the Ride Engine brand and products since they came out on the market. If you ever tried a hardshell kite harness before, then you know it is a no coming back choice for a committed kiter. 

The 2022 Ride Engine Lyte harness is made for riders who are looking for maximum stiffness and support, but also for next-gen materials freaks, who always want to try the latest innovations in terms of lightweight and durability.

Furthermore, the chance to choose for direct connection or webbing connection finally allows you to choose the spreader bar you like the most, also from other kite brands.
