Advance Axess 3 Air Weight:
At only 3.5 kg total weight the Advance Axess 3 Air is the lightest harness of its class. An innovative airbag protector and the careful choice of materials are the main reasons for the minimal weight and small volume when packed. In addition, the AXESS 3 comes with a carbon seatboard and aluminium carabiners as standard. When combined with an ADVANCE EASYPACK the AXESS 3 AIR can confidently stand comparison with a reversible harness in terms of compactness and weight.
Advance Axess 3 Air Back Protection:
The air protector with a foam skeleton has the weight and compactness of a conventional airbag, but provides the protection of a foam protector, because it is fully functioning before takeoff. The Airbag consists of a framework of PU walls, like the ribs and frames in a ship’s hull. The opposing tensions between these walls pull the airbag into shape. Although it compresses down exceptionally small, this protector takes up its shape and full volume immediately after unpacking, and is already providing its maximum protection at takeoff. This concept, devised by ADVANCE, was introduced with the AXESS 2 and has now been further developed and improved in the AXESS 3.
The Hybrid Airbag automatically takes on its working shape and full volume immediately after unpacking. The foam framework inside the protector makes sure that it directly and independently fills with air while still on the ground – without the need for continuous airflow. This novel system provides a high level of passive safety, from the first to last moment of your flight.
Advance Axess 3 Air Harness Straps:
As the name suggests, the ADVANCE system for closing the harness straps has been reduced to two buckles; the AXESS 3 Air is secured (as with all other ADVANCE harnesses) by only two buckles. The safety of this system is already proven, and ADVANCE has successfully used this technology on all its harness models for many years. Conventional harness closure systems need at least three buckles.
Advance Axess 3 Air Harness 3D Design:
The AXESS 3 Air was developed using ADVANCE’s own 3D CAD software. This means that the process of analysing the curved shapes was done by the software. The result is a knock-on effect of real advantages for the pilot. On the one hand the product ends up with perfect shaping and correctly-managed stressing, resulting in an elegant shape, fewer creases and, finally, improved aerodynamics. On the other, comfort also benefits from a precise design of the desired, ergonomic shape.
