Advance BiPro 3
Advance rarely update their popular tandem harness but this is just what they have recently done. The new Advance BiPro 3 is a tandem paragliding harness that has been designed for professional tandem drivers as well as recreational pilots. The first thing to note is even although the harness is very strongly made, it is also only an astonishing 2.6kg in weight. We all know how much work can be involved with carrying a full tandem setup to takeoff so it’s nice to see that Advance has helped to do something about this. Not only is the Advance BiPro 3 light, it is easy to pack with its clever folding function. The new Edelrid 3-action buckles have also been used for the first time, making any kind of spontaneous opening completely impossible. Back protection amounts to around 17L in volume but can be removed if the pilot needs more storage. Like the BiPro harnesses before it, the BiPro 3 avoids any discomfort of the passengers back with cleverly designed split leg pads. The new harness also comes with a built-in selfie stick holder as we all know how much passengers like to have videos and pictures of the experience. The Advance BiPro 3 is available in two sizes covering pilots from 155cm to 202cm.
Summary: A great update to an already well established tandem harness.
