The Genie Race: improved for 2012
The Genie Race has proved to be one of the most successful ever XC and competition harnesses, meeting the high standards of international champions. Never content in their quest for perfection, Gin Seok Song and his R&D team have made several additional refinements for 2011. We designed the Genie Race like we design our paragliders. Extensive computer modelling was used to find the most aerodynamically efficient, thin and stable profile, and then the product was refined through endless flight testing and trimming to maximize comfort, feel and ease-of-use. The elegant design focuses on simplicity, allowing the pilot to focus on the task in hand, and eliminating the need for complicated adjustments.
The overall geometry of the harness enables the pilot to feel the feedback from the glider sensitively, whilst retaining a secure feeling in flight. This increases the precision of turns while thermalling and aids active flying. The shoulder straps are now longer for an improved fit. Comfort is second-to-none and on long flights, you'd almost be forgiven for falling asleep.
The Aerocone Inflatable Fairing system (AIF system), which has become a defining feature of the Genie Race, minimizes drag and enhances stability during flight. In this latest version of the harness, the AIF material has been upgraded to a quieter, more durable fabric.
The overall feel of luxury has been increased by covering all the webbing inside the harness, and integrating 2 handy inner pockets into this cover on either side of the hips.
The speed system works through a large Ronstan® ball-bearing auto lock pulley that offers a huge advantage when using the speed bar. It reduces the force required to maintain accelerated flight, reduces wear when used often, and also reduces pilot fatigue during long flights. The angle of the cocoon can easily be adjusted in relation to the wing's angle of attack by the 4 attached straps.
The main webbing used on the Genie Race is made from Dyneema, which is both stronger and lighter than the conventional webbing used in most harnesses.
The Genie Race is supplied with a cockpit/ballast container that can be emptied during flight through the large hole that is covered with a flap on the side when not in use. There is even a removable Neoprene speed vest that reduces drag and helps keep you warm and comfortable during your flight.
You will find extra storage space under the seat plate, for up to 2 litres of extra ballast or an emergency kit. 2 lateral pockets on the outside of the harness are closed magnetically, allowing easy access.
