The FUERTA is based on a compact, comfortable, easy-to-adjust harness core with a fixed desk and a full back protector. This new model of 2018 is also equipped with a new zip container of the reserve parachute placed in the lumbar part of the harness, which you would expect rather on the upper middle class harnesses.
We have been testing and improving the internal construction of FUERTA harness for several years in the biggest paragliding training center – Beskydská škola létání. And instructors like to teach elementary paragliding courses with FUERTA as ground training and high flights as well. For its simplicity, comfort and great durability.
This place is at first glance a barren, inhospitable, and perhaps compare to the other Canary Islands and a bit repulsive.
But a few visits were enough to fall in love with it and we have found Fuerteventura a quiet, quirky, but at the same time, many offering training area.

Harnesses are NOT originally equipped with carbines so that the weight and price do not include them.
FUERTA was originally designed for use in paragliding training centres and as the first harness for beginning pilots.
Therefore FUERTA has been made of quality and tough materials ensuring durability.
Reinforcement of lower part of the harness for harder landings is essential in this case.
We have equipped the model of the year 2018 with colour marking of the straps so that even the beginning pilot is more confident when connecting them to the risers of the paraglider.
Not only FUERTA harness is equipped with this different colour marking, but of course also our gliders. All El Speedo paraglider manufactured since 2018 have these colour marked risers.
Solid seat plate design is valued by pilots not only for comfort and excellent weight shift control in thermals, but also for ground handling training.
Solid seat board enables proper force transmission to the canopy and weight shift control during ground handling training.
For such training, separate leg straps including safety T-system strap are, in addition to that, more comfortable than GET-UP system with a link directly to the abdominal strap.
The segmental structure of 17 cm thick foam protector is able to absorb most impacts associated with a harder landing.
It is a passive safety element, which is a frequent helper in harder impacts and therefore it is good not to underestimate this part of FUERTA, especially for novice pilots.
With this FUERTA h (2018), we chose the same design and support for the integrated reserve parachute container as our CHOGORI XC premium harness.
Due to the low weight of FUERTA and the low weight of El Speedo reserve parachutes of the RSQ Ultrino series (0,84 kg for the version for the weight of 100 kg), we have decided for this more modern solution. We do not disconnect reserve parachutes during ground training anymore, simply because we do not have to.
Navíc je kontejner zajištěn hned třemi nylonovými jehlami, které vytvářejí dostatečnou ochranu před nechtěným otevřením zipového kontejneru. Pokud však jehly uvolníte, zipy se velmi snadno a přirozeně rozjedou a uvolní zavěšení záložního padáku tak, aby pilota vždy vytáhly do svislé polohy ideální pro dopad.
