Today we tested the new Mystic kitesurf harness: Gem Jalou Langeree.
Waist harness from Mystic kiteboarding
Ones and a while you need to try something new. After years of riding a soft-shell harness with kitesurfing, it’s time to change. Our blog different kind of harness will explain more about the hard – and soft-shell types.
Gem Jalou Langeree the movie
Before buying a new harness I tried several types which fits best for my body. I tried different brands, like ION, Brunotti and also Mystic. The Gem Jalou Langeree fits best for my body. But I ‘ll advise everybody when buying a new harness go to the shop and try as many as possible.
For me this one was the best while the harness it selves was the perfect size, it was a bit smaller than the others and therefore I did not went up when testing it on the demo bar in the shop.
Like I mentioned, the shell fits perfectly round my core and didn’t feel any touchpoints, which is important. You don’t want to feel any pain in your core while kitesurfing.
You have to buy a spreader bar separate from the shell. So you buy a shell and spreader bar. This give you the choice of buying a bar of your kind of kitesurfing style.
For me i bought a 280mm stealthier, which was exact the size of my core, so i was the lucky one 🙂
Riding the Mystic harness
After buying the harness it was time to test it in real live. So I went up to the dutch shore, there was wind between 25 – 30 knots, perfect to try and test the gear.
The harness fits perfect also with my wetsuit and impact vest. it did not went up when my kite was on 12. Honestly I did not feel the harness at all. Super comfy. nog paining the back or rest of my body. It was just good!
