The Body is the first ever harness designed specifically for speedriding, with a focus on the freeride ski position.
This totally new design gives the rider a real ski position while making the transitions back to seated flight smooth and effortless.
The harness attachment points are located more closely to the body for a natural standing position, even when the glider lifts overhead, or when the skier leans to the side in an upright ski posture – throughout all ski movements, the harness allows the wing to be controlled independantly.
For the legs we developed truly independent leg straps which allow creativity when freeriding steep slopes without causing the wing to be sent in an opposing direction by skiing weight shift. When combined with the NEO X-Ride and S-Ride, this new harness creates a synergisitc relationship between the pilot and the wing, in which the skier leads and the wing follows.
The Body offers the rider more freedom with his glider internet, and more precision in its roll control. Runs are smooth and precise, allowing experienced riders to increase their creativity.
The transition to seated position is easy – just raise the knees. It can be made quickly, for instance to initiate a barrel roll, and even faster to return to a standing position.
Beginner pilots and riders will experience a more forgiving behaviour on take-off, with softer roll and less aggressive wing reactions, speeding their progression.
The body by NEO includes the latest technology in back protection : the EOP 2.0 by Koroyd. This thin, light and breathable protection has a huge power of energy deceleration on impact. The core is covered in a thin protection that absorbs impact – this is the latest development in engineering of back protection.
The Body has a large back pocket to store your glider bag when you ride. A lateral pocket allows you to put stow quickly your fast-packing bag before taking off. An automatic clip on the shoulder strap allows you to clip the NEO Speed pack (incl. with the NEO gliders or available in option), for the skiing transition without glider.
The Body is secured by three manual buckles, easily adjustable. The harness should be used with the leg straps tightly secured for optimum comfort and more precision on the handling.
The Body will offer riders of all levels, who love skiing, to discover or rediscover speedriding, and enter a new dimension, the 3rd dimension.
Original and exclusive bag/harness concept by NEO designed for a better integration of the bag in flight while having a light and comfortable harness and bag. The shorty comes with a KOROYD Propack back protection. Optional removable airbag. Optional Fidlock bottle to be fixed on the shoulder’s backpack.
This harness has a leg straps ABS geometry with lateral inclination adjustments as well as a clamping strap between the 2 leg straps. The glider can be packed in the bag whether it is attached to the carabiners or not.
This harness/rucksack contains ice pick and poles’ holders. Thanks to its volume, it is suitable for any type of glider folded in its compression or packing bag.
Delivered with the flexible and integrated KOROYD Propack back protection designed to protect the spine against shocks and as an option the LTF certified removable airbag specially designed for this harness, everything was thought for more safety. It is also possible to order the harness with the NEO front container for the rescue.
Due to its geometry and concept, this harness is extremely precise in thermals. Its inclination and depth were designed so the pilot stays closed to its glider, inducing a dynamic manoeuvrability, less fatigue while piloting and more stability; the glider and the harness are perfectly coordinated.
The Shorty was designed in order to make it easy to switch from sitting to standing position. In addition, its geometry makes this harness incredibly comfortable no matter what the position of the skier is.
The harness comes with the flexible and integrated KOROYD Propackback protection, a type of skiing protection which is to this day the lightest and most breathable protection in the world.
Made of robust fabric extremely resistant to abrasion, and designed with a multitude of pockets, this harness is a very practical speedriding tool: 2 front pockets, one of which for the ski mask, 1 side Lycra pocket for the fast packing bag, 1 internal pocket for the shovel and probe, ski holders and the possibility to insert in the bag telescopic poles before taking off.
Fully dedicated to mountain flights and light gear carrying.
Particularly suited to mountain flying, it also intended to be used for tandem flying, ground handling, coastal ridge soaring, wherever lightness and ease allow the pilot to play freely.
This is the third version of a leading lightweight harness design! Comfort and modularity are at the heart of this new development.
The Radical 3 has an improved structural frame incorporating a simple, removable dorsal storage pocket.
Possibility to thermal with – high passive safety – accepts an optional front mounted reserve parachute pocket – has reserve parachute bridles shoulder connections, and a removable reversible AirBag/Backpack.

A little known secret of light and comfortable mountain packs, is that the best ones are ergonomic and compact. Typically, ergonomic mountain backpacks are based on a rigid frame, which is not compatible with a paragliding harness. Our idea was to make your wing the compact frame: you pack it into a folding bag, and not only does this bag make glider-packing easier, it also forms an ergonomic structure which greatly increases the comfort and efficiency of the pack.
With a total weight of just 1030g, the String Pack is a combination harness, backpack, and folding bag.
The String Pack is not reversible. The backpack shoulder straps are the same in flight mode and carry mode; comfort could not be higher for such a light harness.
The geometric base of the String Pack is the same as the already successful NEO String. It is easy to wear, light, and comfortable. In the air, the harness is very stable, yet retains the potential for dynamic and precise handling when needed.
The String concept has been designed to use GRIVEL PLUM carabiners, which are delivered as an option, but any other automatic carabiner or connector will work. You can choose to keep your wing and harness permanently attached, or simply slip it on at take off and fasten the leg straps each time.
The stretchable storage bag will easily hold a variety of wings, from ultra-light mountain to light intermediate gliders.
A helmet holder is available as an option: Made from Lycra, it will stretch to fit your helmet snugly and is securely fastened by four attachment points at the top of the String Pack.
The NEO String Pack is certified EN. The internal Dyneema structure actually offers much more strength than required for certification. Even though it is super light, it has been thoroughly tested in all conditions and its durability has been proven.
The String Pack is ideal for walking, climbing, and running in the mountains. It is compact, easy to use, ergonomic, and light. This is the best harness we have ever used for travel, trekking, and mountain running.
The new ergonomic shape and ventilation system on the back makes it very comfortable to carry, even on a long walk. The shoulder and lumbar straps mould to your body shape with 3D mesh. This rucksack enables storage of the harness and the glider in separate compartments.
To convert the rucksack into a harness, just turn it inside out. Legs are independent and the shoulder straps slide through the front cross strap for greater comfort when skiing. These and other technical features give you more comfort and precision in use.
The major innovations are:
The anti-puncture plate and back protection is fully integrated between the bag and the harness.
The harness shoulder straps have been designed to mold to your body and to follow your movements. The harness geometry provides an improved fit when the speedrider is in the standing or semi-seated position.
The new double leg straps system allows more precise piloting. In addition, a rubber strap allows the the leg straps to automatically mold to your thighs.
A 'sock' pocket enables the storage of telescopic poles during runs without the risk of snagging on the glider lines. The harness still has enough volume to accept clothes and a snow probe. While wearing the harness, the "Fast pack bag" (optional) is very useful in the zipped pocket on the right leg.
No doubt that this 'Freeride' harness is the ideal tool for wide open spaces!
