Split leg harness vs regular seat?

Recommended Posts

I can't tell you what it's like on a paramotor, but on a paraglider it's fine - even long term! :)

I actually find split leg ones nicer for running about and messing about with the wing on some dunes, there is no seat board to get in the way when running, and they are very slightly lighter.

The weight shift is usually reduced if you have a split leg harness (with no seat board) - if that's what you mean by better. When you start to fly mini wings (sub 20m paraglider wings) it's recommended you use a split leg harness for this reason. I personally like to fly using weight shift with a seat board on my paramotor as I can wedge myself onto one side of the harness to counteract the torque effect!
