Woody Valley is proud to present the new hang-gliding harness: LIBERO
LIBERO is conceived to satisfy all pilots looking for an easy-to-use hang-gliding harness.
It is suitable for absolute beginners, occasional pilots and even top pilots who wish to have fun flights without spending time adjusting their top-of-the-line competition harness.
LIBERO is light, compact and ideal for an easy take-off and landing. It has no stiff back components, just four small pipes to spread the weight evenly on the pilot and a few 4 mm aramid Kevlar lines. The main hang strap slides along the support pipes, helping the pilot into the ideal position for landing stall.
LIBERO is constructed just like our Tenax 4: the main frame including the webbing and the rescue parachute compartments are separated from the outer skin that is attached with Velcro and therefore it is very easy to clean, repair or even replace.
In order to reduce the overall weight, LIBERO is made of solely light fabric (that we have been using for our paragliding harnesses) and no heavier material such as Cordura. The rear part in reinforced Lycra gives LIBERO a slick look, it improves its fit and offers extra storage space thanks to its elastic back pocket.
The main karabiner in 3000 KN Titanal helps limit the overall weight to only 4 Kg (medium size including rucksack). To compare, the Tenax4 is 9KG, the Flex2 is 5.8kg, the Moyes Matrix is 7.8kg
The rescue parachute tie rope is sewn directly onto the shoulder area of the main frame, just like it happens on our Tenax 4. This system has already been thoroughly tried and tested in real emergency situations and when the pilot deploys the rescue parachute s/he gets pulled upwards and the ground impact is considerably absorbed by the glider.
It has already passed all the DHV certification tests (120 Kg at 9 G).
SIZE AND COLOURS
Libero comes in four different sizes covering all average-built pilots. Extra small or extra large sizes will be custom made on request.
Libero is all BLACK apart from the side stripes that can be made in one of the following colours: grey, blue, turquoise, red, orange, lime green or white
