Don't think so. It should actually put a lot less stress on ribs because it won't deform.

The complete opposite. They actually protect your ribs because the harness is rigid. And what I mean by protect is since the side of the harness is rigid it no longer deforms and gets pulled into your rib cage like non-rigid harnesses.

Every harness I rode before the Ride Engine used to dig into my ribs but not anymore.

How did the local guy at your beach break his ribs with the harness?

One top rider I wont mention attributes his broken ribs to one. Maybe they have improved them now? It was a year or so ago.

I have only heard about 1 top rider who had an issue with an early model of the Ride Engine and I know the guy personally and I can tell you with 100% certainty he did not break his ribs.

It merely gave him a rub rash and that issue was fixed because I bought the very next version after that version was corrected.

I think the standard non-custom sizes went for between $200 and $250. The custom fit went for between $300 to $350. Just depended upon the options you selected.

Guess we're talking about different people then.

The RE harnesses are sick. You must get the right size tho otherwise it will suck. You will most likely need 1 size smaller than your existing harness. I like the option of being able to change out the spreader bar from hook to rope.

Yea, a lot less "minimalist".

I'm actually curious how they compare to the old custom ones. I'm hoarding my custom ones and babying the shit out of them in hopes that I can keep them alive for as long as possible.
