Woody Valley X-Rated 7 harness

Woody Valley X-Rated 7 harness

X-Rated 7 is the most extreme example of Woody Valley’s many years of experience in competition harnesses.

It has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of professional pilots in term of comfort, flying performance, aerodynamics, and safety. For these reasons the harness has been painstakingly modified and optimised, right down to the last detail.



Woody Valley X-Rated 7 harness


The X-Rated7 is unique in its genre for both the number of new features and the quality in the details.

Its flying performance, aerodynamic shape, and responsive handling qualities in particular, have been designed to help get the very best out of modern competition gliders. X-rated 7 has can accommodate two parachutes, as required by current competition rules, and has space for a third parachute in the front. Furthermore, it is equipped with the facility for an “Anti-G” drag parachute and the new “Mini T-Lock” safety system to help prevent you from forgetting to fasten the leg and chest straps.

X-Rated 7 is equipped with LTF certified 14 cm foam back protection. The back protection is made up of two elements: one protects the seat and the lower back and the other one protects the upper back.

The harness has 2 reserve containers plus the facility for a front mounted third parachute. It has two ballast containers, a Camelbak pocket, a recess for a hookknife and it even has an exit hole designed for a pee tube – they really have thought of everything!
