Woody Valley Tenax 4 Harness
The brand newTenax 4 is the result of 2 years of hard work in conjunction with Alex Ploner and Christian Ciech. The Tenax 4 is designed for XC and competition flying.
The carbon and kevlar back plate of the Tenax 4 is as long as the Tenax 3 but double the width. This increases comfort and avoids pressure points on long flights.
The harness skin is made with light and strong rip-stop material which is detachable, so easy to clean, repair or even replace (if you fancy a change of colour!)
The harness main frame is rigid in the middle and softer along the sides. The main zip is equipped with Velcro and therefore it is easily changeable.
The tail cone is longer than on previous models, to give even better aerodynamics. It comes with combinable 5mm sections so the harness length can be set without adjusting the shoulder straps.
The location and deployment of the rescue parachute has always been key for Woody Valley harnesses. This means pilots must be able to deploy easily and quickly regardless of the hand they use in that moment. The location of the rescue parachute container varies according to the harness size, without compromising the overall aerodynamics of shoulders, arms and pockets. The rescue parachute stays partially inside the harness on the pilot’s back just like in the Tenax3.
The angle of dangle systems are the same as the ones offered with the Tenax3:
- Standard – the classic “Woody Valley” self-stability system proven over many years, with a single-strap hook-in, sliding on a taut rope, all integrated in the back board.
- Friction – a system based on the classic Woody Valley system, with an extra friction device fixed on the main attachment, working on a thin rope that is fixed at the ends of the back board (MR system). This system makes the angle of dangle adjustment more steady and stable.
- Inside trim – a system to change the angle of dangle that can be activated whilst flying using an internal lever (“Kick-ass” system).
- PTS (Ploner Trim System) – using a slider rope with a limiting system
Optional left hand reserve container £30.00
Woody Valley’s quality and attention to detail is second to none.
This harness is not designed for aerobatics.
