Skywalk Core harness PURE AIR SET
Skywalk CORE modular ultralight harness
The CORE is the ultimate lightweight harness, built to meet the high demands of mountaineers and Hike/Climb&Fly enthusiasts. In the development of the harness, which weighs only 410 grams, Skywalk’s focus was on: lightness, stability, intuition, and most of all comfort., all without sacrificing safety.
The modular ultralight CORE harness is supplied in a neat, slim, protective storage bag that fits into the smallest Hike&Fly Rucksack with ease.
The CORE is a classic loop harness with a high suspension due to its design. This results in a higher roll stability and damped flying behaviour in turbulence, very reassuring and what you often need, especially with smaller wings. With the chest strap adjuster you can significantly change the agility and roll stability, and you have the possibility to reduce the pressure point on your inner thighs by tightening the adjuster.
The CORE is well padded for such a lightweight design. Despite its ultra-lightweight construction, the CORE employs a 2 mm thin foam throughout the seat area, which contributes significantly to comfort and thermal insulation. The CORE thus protects you from drafts and cold in the back area, which is especially advantageous after strenuous Hike/Climb&Fly activities.
The CORE is modular and available in two versions:
The “PURE Set” includes the basic harness, karabiners and speed system weighing only 410g supplied in the storage bag.
The “PERMAIR Set” includes the PURE set with the addition of the PermAir Add-On (protector cover, PERMAIR protector with LTF 91/09 certification incl. inflate/deflate valve, inflation bag and mouthpiece). The addition of the PERMAIR protector offers protection right from launch. At 810g it is the lightest harness with a permanent protector on the market.
The “PERMAIR only” is the protector to get to upgrade the PURE Set into the PERMAIR Set.
The PERMAIR protector is a certified protector designed to be inflated before launch. This results in it very compact protector when not flying while offering exceptional perfomance in flight.
The PERMAIR protector can be inflated using the included inflation bag, by mouth (through the supplied mouthpiece with HPE filter) or using an optional extra PERMAIR PUMP; a small, light electric pump with a weight of 150g that can also be used as a battery pack with capacity of 3600mAh. The protector is deflated easily through the large valve.

MODULARThe CORE is modular and available in two versions. The PURE Set accompanies you on fast Hike&Fly tours or difficult climbing routes. The PermAir Add-On turns the CORE into a PERMAIR Set and offers full protection even before launch. Also, thanks to its ultra compact packing size the CORE is the perfect travel companion and is further more ideal as a passenger harness for Hike&Fly tandem flying.
INTUITIVEThe CORE eliminates bulky buckles and adjustment straps. The elastic shoulder straps adapt to your size, ensure an optimal fit during the launch phase and rest comfortably on your shoulders in the air. Red and blue marked seams in the loops improve the overview while small SALEWA sling protectors prevent the carabiners from twisting in the straps. In flight, insulation foam in the complete seat and a PE board in the leg loops ensure an extremely comfortable fit and counteract the cold.
MINIMALISTThe packing size of the CORE is ultra-compact. A small, narrow pocket stores the ultra-lightweight harness and lets you pack it in even the smallest Hike&Fly rucksack with ease. Its unisize covers body sizes from 1,65 to 1,95 meters. That’s all you need.

PERMAIR 2.0The further development of our first PERMAIR protector generation has a practical inflate/deflate check valve that makes the filling of your protector significantly easier. PERMAIR 2.0 protectors can also be inflated in several ways. In addition to the previously common variant with the inflation bag and compression function, you now have the option to fill your protector in a minimalist way via the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece includes a moisture filter to minimize the introduction of moisture and is included in the PERMAIR Set scope of delivery.
INFLATIONBAGThe most common way to fill your PERMAIR protector with air is to use the Inflationbag. Connect the Inflationbag to the valve and blow into the opening. Close the bag by rolling it until pressure builds up in the Inflationbag. Apply more pressure by pumping on the Inflationbag to allow air to flow into the PERMAIR protector. You will feel a pressure increase in the Inflationbag when the protector is completely filled. After that, it is not possible to pump more air into the protector.
MOUTHPIECE Connect the grey part of the mouth piece to the valve. Make sure the HME-filter (heat moisture exchanger) is inside the mouth piece (blue spongy) and start with inflating by blowing inside the transparent opening. The protector is fully inflated once you feel significant resistance of air pressure when blowing inside.
