[Miami, 6/1/2023] – Dakine, a renowned provider of top-quality outdoor gear, proudly commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Pyro Harness. As the first-ever kiteboarding harness to hit the market, the Pyro Harness has been instrumental in redefining comfort and setting the industry standard for two decades.
Since its groundbreaking debut, the Pyro Harness has been synonymous with unparalleled comfort, durability, and cutting-edge design. Its innovative features and meticulous craftsmanship have made it the go-to choice for professional athletes, avid kiteboarders, and leisure riders worldwide.
Brent Beringhaus, Brand Manager of Dakine Wind, said, "When Chris Gilbert and I set out to redesign the Pyro, we knew it wasn't just a harness but a windsports icon. We needed to surpass all expectations, and we did. With its cutting-edge honeycomb flex perimeter and innovative Texon composite shell, Pyro sets a new standard for unparalleled comfort and performance."
Cedric Kleisler, Americas Sales Manager of Dakine Wind, added, "It is inspiring to see an icon like the Pyro continue its heritage in a sport and industry that is constantly changing. Staying relevant and dependable over the years is a testament to the Dakine legacy."
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Pyro Harness features an ergonomic shape and Texon stiffener that molds to the contours of the rider's body, providing unmatched comfort and support during kiteboarding sessions. The harness's adjustable dual-power belt system ensures a secure fit, while its memory foam interior molds to the rider's body, reducing pressure points and facilitating unrestricted movement.
The Pyro Harness's legacy as the first production kiteboarding harness is a testament to Dakine's commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction. By introducing this pioneering product two decades ago, Dakine revolutionized the kiteboarding experience and paved the way for advancements in comfort and performance.
One of the standout features of the Pyro Harness is its Adaptive Fit Composite technology. This cutting-edge innovation, exclusive to Dakine, strikes the perfect balance between support and flexibility, resulting in an unmatched riding experience. The strategic placement of AFC also aids in distributing the load evenly, reducing fatigue and enabling riders to enjoy longer sessions on the water.
Chris Gilbert added, "This is just the beginning of our journey. Stay tuned as we continue to push the boundaries of harness technology, introducing advancements that will revolutionize the industry. Together, we are redefining what we can achieve in terms of comfort, reliability, and sustainability."
