CR WAKEBAR & HARNESS – Waterski & Wakeboard Harness Review

CR WAKEBAR & HARNESS - Waterski & Wakeboard Harness

  • FREERIDE RELOADED! Hook in, Hang loose! This is a whole new way to ride, this is FREERIDE! If you love great carving turns then this is for you. From the great success of the “Surf-Harness” in Kitesurfing we are now launching a whole new riding category. Our US patented WAKEBAR together with a Surf Harness is about to write a new chapter of towed watersports. Unique way to get the pulling force well distributed between handle and Surf-Harness opens unprecedented riding techiques
  • FREERIDE WATERSKI – Riding with a harness! It’s really for everybody, from beginners to advanced skiers. The CR WAKEBAR offers less pull on the handle and better control because of the lower pull on the harness. Feel yourself stronger! Getting a lift at your hips makes the deep waterstart the easiest part, you will love it! The Harness stabilizes your body posture, you will improve your skiing skills like never before. No Limits!
  • TOW-SURFING A COMPLETELY NEW WAY TO SURF BEHIND A BOAT, JETSKI or even a SAILBOAT! All began with Surfing, pure Wave Riding. But the evolution never stopped and new SURF SPORTS became very popular like WIND SURFING and later KITE SURFING. But SURF-BOARDS have found its way as a new BOAT-SPORT, WAKE SURF means riding the WAKE of the BOAT. We wanna bridge the gap between WAKE-SURFING and WAKEBOARDING. TOW SURFING works best with small SURFBOARDS like the one used for Kitesurfing for example.
  • The tow-system is equipped with an automatic quick release. It will release the connection to the harness immediately once you release or loose the handle. (There is no trigger to be hold and no action required, the quick release will be activated through a release cord).
  • Only one-half of the strength is required to hold the handle, the other half is well distributed by our comfortable waist-harness where 50% of the tow-force is lying much lower at the center of gravity of the skier. A free running pulley on the harness allows all water-ski-typical body movements and inclinations, total freedom in every situation.

What is new about this patented invention is the combination of a comfortable and highly loadable waist harness as well as an ingenious handle system. Both parts are connected with a tow system. The connection of the handle and the harness to the mainline is conducted over a pulley, using the well-tried principle of the pulley block. The resulting reduction of the physical effort needed on the handle by 50 %, relieves the arms and back considerably. Moreover, the pulley ensures an even distribution of the towing force on the handle and the harness, which works favourably on the whole body. Half of the entire towing force acts on the harness, which means it is in a much lower position on the body and therefore closer to the waterskier’s centre of gravity. This makes having good posture while skiing easier and the skier has better control. The system is only complete with the specially designed automatic release mechanism (automatic quick release). This immediately breaks the connection to the waist harness as soon as you let go of the handle and the actuator cord, which hangs slack during the ride, becomes tight. The CR handle system remains attached to the boat. Apart from the really simple operation the quick release contains an integrated weak link, which guarantees additional safety for the skier.
