IRRD introduces the all-new premium Shield harness with low profile carbon outer shield, which is made with the stiffest and lightest material that gives the most support without sacrificing weight, for maximum back comfort and performance, during long or powerful sessions. The lightweight carbon material doesn’t absorb water so it stays light. The naturally curved back and pre-shape gives you superior back support without losing freedom of movement and performance on the water. The Unibelt bar stabilizer is an exclusive feature to the Shield harness. It simplifies the belt- and closure construction and locks the bar into place, to eliminate ride-up of the hook. The Unibelt can easily be converted to a wave harness by installing the aftermarket shield specific rope bar conversion kit.
