The Swing brand has been synonymous with expertise in paraglider manufacture for more than 20 years. Swing has been making harnesses in collaboration with Woody Valley for over ten years. Our harnesses are designed exactly in accordance with our requirements and specifications and are produced using Woody Valley's knowhow. Therefore, with only 3 harnesses, we have been able to gain a significant market share in this segment. The best example is the Connect Reverse, which is regarded as a milestone in convertible harnesses. Swing is now adding to its range and, with the Connect Race, is releasing a pod harness.

The Connect Race is an innovative, aerodynamic and very practical XC and competition harness, which will impress you with the special level of comfort it offers. It was developed in close collaboration with cross-country expert Daniel Tyrkas. As repeat German cross-country champion, he knows exactly what is important. Naturally the Connect Race has LTF certification, making it the ideal harness for long cross-country flights and competitions. Take a look at the following features.
