Ion Vertex 2013

ION Vertex 2013


The Vertex is a high performance waist harness designed to take your rides to a new level. This is a Sky Solbach signature harness, so you can imagine that it offers exceptional support, comfort and safety. The harness can accommodate any rider and can be used to boost the performance of any style, from race to freeride.

The Contour Shape 2.0 inside of this harness assures a perfect and natural fin onto the body. The anatomic fit is assured by the use of a modified neoprene Support cushion construction in the back area. Perfect body support is guaranteed by the X-Spine design, based on X-style shaped / thermomoulded EVA protection. Apart from enhanced support, this design also assures great protection. The neoprene inside cushioning boosts comfort, prevents rashes and keeps the harness from riding up.

Even the highest loads are diffused and spread through the back part due to the Cross-over webbing lining. The Vertex also features optimal twist abilities. This comes in handy when performing technical wave and freestyle tricks. All of the edges are covered in soft neoprene to prevent the skin from coming into contact with hard surfaces.

Other features include: support cushion, internal flex belt, belt garage 2.0, protection pad, wrap tec, hip protection and push button spreader bar. The ION Vertex comes in XS, S, M, L and XL sizes.
