Demanding alpinists for whom every gram counts will love the PRISMA GUIDE. Despite its low weight of just 140 g (size M), it offers a surprising amount of comfort. This is made possible by the Light Frame construction comprising high-strength Dyneema® straps. These evenly distribute the load across the waist belt and leg loops and provide a wide force distribution without adding bulk.
LIGHT FRAME CONSTRUCTION
Harnesses made with a load-bearing edge binding construction are particularly lightweight. The edge binding runs throughout the entire harness, so that it safely carries the load around both the hips and thelegs. Weight is proportionately distributed from the webbing to the padding. Combined with perforated foam and mesh fabrics, it's possible to make extremely lightweight harnesses with exceptional breathability. We mainly use this technology for our ultra-light sport climbing and ski touring harnesses.
Depending on the area of use, the circumference of the elasticated (1) leg loops can be adjusted in two different ways. The leg loops can also be fully opened, meaning they can easily be put on while still wearing crampons or skis. A further highlight of the PRISMA GUIDE is its new (2) tie-in loop. This is made of a combination of Dyneema® on the inside and polyamide on the outside. As a result, it is not only lightweight and abrasion resistant but also impressively flexible, making the harness far more comfortable to wear when walking about.
The PRISMA GUIDE leaves nothing to be desired in equipment terms either. An impressive six (3) gear loops (four of which are sheathed) made from high-strength Dyneema® and various attachment options for (4) ice screw clips offer ample opportunities to carry all the necessary equipment in a well-organized manner.
