SKYLIGHTER 4 is a new generation of harness for long cross-country flights, hike-and-fly and travelling. We have updated our lightweight cross-country pod harness to make pilots enjoy flying over the landscape even more and longer. We listened carefully to their needs and feedback and designed SKYLIGHTER 4.

Product Description

SKYLIGHTER 4 is an evolution of the SKYLIGHTER serie with several changes: the new strap system uses 12mm ultralight webbing and the geometry has been changed to give the harness more stability.

SKYLIGHTER 4 is designed as a hammock harness with foam back protection, and extra storage space in response to pilots’ demands for it.

SKYLIGHTER 4 is delivered in M, L and XL sizes.

The main distinctive features are:

R&D Comments

More safety, comfort and stability
That was our goal when designing SKYLIGHTER 4. How did we achieve this?
Before we launch a new model of harness, we spent hours and hours developing it. The lightweight harness is based on popular SKYLIGHTER series and features many innovations. Improved strap system with ultralight webbing and new geometry makes this harness updated to the pilots’ latest requirements.
