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).
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).

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Do I need anything special to install my parachute in it?
The harness will come with a parachute deployment handle...but you do need a side-mounted deployment bag. Moyes Conars' d-bags work well and are packed properly for side-mounted parachute containers. If you currently have a front-mounted chute, you will need this special d-bag.
We recommend a smaller chute for side-mounted harnesses - this means Moyes Conars, HighEnergy Quantums or the LARA Gold models.
I am unsure about packing my parachute in the harness, what can I do?
You could send us your chute when you order the harness and we can pack it into the harness for you when we receive it. Keep in mind that there is no certification for hang glider parachute rigging in North America so we aren't certified to do it (but no one is). We do have lots of experience tho! And we do sell parachutes from all manufactures (WillsWing LARAs, Moyes/Metamorphosi Conar, HighEnergy Quantums and WoodyValley).
Can you ship the harness directly from WoodyValley to me?
No. WoodyValley expects your dealer to take delivery of the harness before sending it out to the owner. They respect their dealer channel.
How long do they take to arrive?
Typically about 6 weeks from the time we place the order with WoodyValley. They have been great with providing accurate completion dates once we place the order and most times, they are faster than that estimated time. They take about 4 days to arrive here once they leave Italy.
How much will it cost to ship to me?
Shipping will be calculated when you order online and check out. It is based on the weight of your order and your address. I personally hate wasting money on shipping costs so we try to keep that down. We have built in the cost of shipping from Italy to us in the cost of this harness but if we have multiple harnesses coming at once, it will save on everyone's shipping costs. If there is savings, trust us that we will refund you a proper portion once we receive the harness from Italy.
