THE SUSPENDER

 XC POD HARNESS

 

 

2018 : NEO created a new type of pod harness, the Suspender: a bucket seat harness that is light, stable, steerable, precise, comfortable, and accessible.

The Suspender’s geometry sets new standards.

2023 : Version 2.0 is now available. Based on the same principles, we’ve been working for 3 years to improve our top-of-the-range cross-country cocoon.

The Suspender 2.0 was designed for cross country pilots who fly often, but also for those starting.

“Comfortable as a couch”, in the air as well, and very accessible to pilots new to pod harnesses.

Several technological innovations and accessories provide maximum safety to the pilot.

The harness is entirely made in France, at NEO’s workshop on the shores of Lake Annecy, which guarantees a top-of-the-range finish, durability, and efficient customer service.

ERIC ROUSSEL

R&D TEAM

« Harnesses must first of all flywell, and rucksacks must havegood support. »

The goal is therefore to provide pilots with a harness that’s very stable, fun, and precise in turns.

 


GEOMETRY

CLASSIC ABS

Basic work was done on the geometry and the seat,

To match our philosophy:

« Harnesses must first of all fly well, and rucksacks must have good support. »

On the Suspender 2.0, the focus of our work was:

– Choosing and precise adjusting a “classic” ABS: the Suspender can be flown with high aspect ratio gliders that require ABS (Anti Balance System) for a more precise handling in thermals and glides like on rails.

– Better ABS to dampen a symmetric shooting in thermals and sudden wingtip surges.

– Roll is managed with fine adjustments to the chest strap width.

GEOMETRY

A UNIQUE ADJUSTMENT

The chest-strap setup (between 42 and 49 cm) has a big impact in roll.

Two NEO tags serve as reference: when overlapped, they indicate a width of 45 cm.

GEOMETRY 

A PERFECT BALANCE

– Perfect placement of the center of gravity, the base to design any harness, for balance and stability.

– Perfect adjustment of the longitudinal balance to manage yaw.

– Perfect overall balance to find the right compromise between stability, feedback of the airmass, turn start and management.

– The geometry stays fully active regardless of the flying speed.

GEOMETRY

IN FLIGHT

– More dynamic turn start than version 1.0.

– External thigh support to retain the turn energy allowing to carve it.

– Better stability and behavior on speed.

– Ultra-precise turn management.

NEO 3D BUCKET SEAT

3D PRE-SHAPED SEAT

The Suspender is a pod harness that’s different from the rest.
It’s a bucket seat: a hybrid between a hammock and a seatboard harness.

We integrated a NEO-Koroyd,that provides precision, rigidity from halfway up the seat to the upper back, and prevents the turn energy from dissipating.

NEO 3D BUCKET SEAT

PRE-SHAPED SEAT COMFORT

– Unmatched comfort in a paragliding harness.

– The balance between the bucket seat and the pod allow the upper body and legs to relax.

– The comfort and precision of a competition harness in a light and compact package.

– The back rigidity allows the pilot to fly with loose shoulder straps and prevent back fatigue on long flights.

– Better foam density on the seat, for improved comfort on long flights.

– Easy and precise adjustments: on the side, depth/lower back, chest, shoulders, and upper chest.

MAXIME PINOT

NEO AMBASSADOR – WORLD CHAMPION 2023

“On July 20, there was finally a window for an XC flight and totest at last the final version of the Suspender 2.0. I went to the NEO workshop to pick up the machine and headed to La Sambuy.

Once I was comfortable in the harness, my instruments were perfectly placed on the cockpit right away, and I was able to go for a morning ride along the east faces of the Bauges Massif.

I immediately felt the comfort, along with great roll stability, even in harsh thermals and turbulent slopes.

In thermals, the harness settles in the turn and doesn’t come out. The Koroyd protection offers an additional seat board effect for a clear and precise support.

After the long glides on the east faces, using the speed bar was a real pleasure. The self-blocking pulleys provide real comfort and their placement doesn’t change the pilot’s position. It’s perfect for ambitious cross-country flights.

After 7 hours flying and 220km, I finished my exciting great test flight of the Suspender 2.0!”

The protection NEO Koroyd 3.0 provides the longitudinal rigidity of the bucket to maintain its direction in accelerated flight.

ACTIVE SAFETY

Same basic in-flight active safety features as in version 1.0:

– The Suspender can be flown in a sitting position and provides support right after launching or in turbulence.

– The geometry provides peace of mind thanks to its stability in turbulence or during an incident, and facilitates active flying.

– Effortless and easy-to-find rescue handle placed on the axis of the main carabiner.

– Large back rescue container for easy extraction.

– Easy to step into the pod.

– G-chute pockets (left or right) are easy to access and have a passage to connect the drag chute to the main lower strap.

PASSIVE safety

BETTER TECHNOLOGY FOR FULL PROTECTION

On this 2.0 version, comfort was significantly improved.
