How to set a Record

Harnesses and Back Protectors

At the 2011 CIVL Plenary Meeting, the paragliding harness rule, FAI Sporting Code Section 7B § 12.2.1, was modified as follows:

All pilots in 1st Category events must fly with a harness certified to EN1651, LTF09 or LTF03. The harness must be equipped with a back protector certified to LTF09 or LTF03.

In order to help pilots comply with this important safety rule, a table has been compiled from information sourced from the websites of harness manufacturers and test laboratories. The Paragliding Committee hopes that the PG community will help keep this list updated by informing us of any omission and notifying us of new certified models and harness/back protector combinations. This will prove most useful to organisers of future championships as well as to pilots and team leaders preparing to compete in championships.

Updates should be sent to the CIVL Competitions Coordinator.
