Ride Engine is renowned for making the best fitting hard-shell harnesses in kiteboarding and windsurfing. We were the first company to make a hard-shell harness—a revolutionary design change that nearly every other company has since attempted to duplicate. Although the copycats are plentiful, they fail to achieve the famed Ride Engine fit. Why? Because the design of our hard-shell harnesses is derived from hundreds of lumbar back scans of women and men.
