Harness the power for your traction activities
- waist style harness suitable for all land and water based
Mystic have teamed up with BOA to create a
harness that you can change the feel whilst out on the water.
For extra support to really dial in your harness for the ultimate
mega loop, simply twist the BOA and ramp up the tension in
the back support. Or for a nice chilled freestyle session,
simply pop the button and the tension drops for a comfy flexi
BOA has changed so many product in so many
industries, whether its boots in wakeboarding, gloves for
skiing or helmets for biking, BOA always work with the best
in the business and they have chosen their kite brand to work
with, they have chosen Mystic and they have produced together
the Mystic Code 1 Waist Harness.
Mystic’s harness philosophy is clear.
Based on up to date analysis they set their goals on excellent
freedom of movement and harness construction. To ensure ‘comfort’
is the fundament on which their Kinetic Technology is build.
Analyses of forces and movements play the main role in Mystic
design philosophy and the results are an essential contribution
to their designs. The information to
come up with progressive designs on Harness construction,
freedom of movement and load distribution and use of teamriders
to monitor the constant development in the sport, allows them
to be ahead of the game!
For 2013 Mystic Kiteboarding have used new
materials and techniques to ensure comfort independent
the altering shape of the human body. For this Mystic Kiteboarding
have added ‘Flex’, ‘Support’ and ‘Protection’
into the new ‘Code 1’ harness.
A harness has to move with the body rather then giving support
only in one position. With ‘Flex’ the harness
can follow the altering shape of the body during movements.
Good positioning of the harness can then be assured.
Good support starts with a good position
of the harness. With the adapting potential of the badge,
forces on the harness can be evenly distributed.
The Boa System allows you to fine tune your fit and rely on
it staying tight throughout your time in your harness. The
Boa lace does not stretch.
Constructed from many interwoven, braided
stainless steel laces, it has zero stretch. Simply stated,
once you fine tune your fit, you can rely on the laces maintaining
that specific closure. The Boa reel cannot and will not loosen
or come untied. Internal ratchet arms engage with specially
shaped gear teeth designed to keep the lace in place. No amount
of force applied during your activity will overcome this mechanism,
allowing you to set the lace tension and know the closure
will stay exactly like you dialed it in.
The Boa reel is designed with a patented,
field-proven mechanism to ensure that the reel stays closed
during use. Only when you finishes your kiting and actively
pull out the dial, will the system release. This provides
the user with excellent reliability and security.
- BOA Technology
Back Support: A new dimension in support
control. Control your back support with the revolutionary
"Boa Support Control" Click and rotate the BOA
knob to tighten or loosen the tension for optimum support
that exactly fits your needs.
- Human Kinetic
Technology System: Analysis of kite forces,
joint movements, load distribution, harness constructions
and materials has combined findings into fully redeveloped
radical harness designs.
- H-flex Force
Frame: The ‘H’ in this force
frame is formed by 3 Fiberglass battens. 2 slightly angled
vertical ones and 1 horizontal. The vertical battens ensure
a perfect harness shape and thus good load distribution
during hooked sessions. When you ‘pop’ unhooked
tricks the vertical battens ‘flex’ around the
axis of the horizontal batten adding comfort. The horizontal
batten also keeps the backside of the harness stiff when
there’s load on your handle pass leash. So when you
crash you’ll be still ‘in’ your harness
rather then squeezed ‘in between’ your harness.
A thicker but more flexible plastic
plate forms the base of the force frame. All together, freedom
of movement, comfort and load distribution are set to a
- System Down
System"Waist": Locks the spreaderbar
down, giving you more control while performing your manoeuvres.
In high kite positions the system activates a side-to-side
force chain preventing the harness from riding up.
- 3D Anatomical
Back Support: With the newly invented 3D
Back Support, Mystic is technically speaking steps ahead
of the competition. The anatomical preformed nylon backsupport
is positioned inside the back panel of the waist harness
and gives the waist harness a contoured shape in horizontal
and vertical directions. The back support is connected through
the continuous 40mm webbing of the spreaderbar. The spread
of forces is divided by the 360° effect which gives
maximum comfort, support and fit without losing any feel.
The continued strap is attached to the back support from
one side to the other side of the harness (360° effect).
When hooked in and riding, the tension on the spreaderbar
will be spreaded over the back support which gives maximum
- Kinetic Back
Support KM3: Combing the advantages of thermo
moulding and neoprene, the mould is fitted with bending
lines to let the harness adapt to the continuous altering
of the human body.
- Seamless Neoprene
Edge: A Soft and padded neoprene
edge to prevent rash on top of the pelvic bones. While grabbing
your board and boning out your tricks, the ribs encounter
the harnesses edge. Therefore this edge should be designed
with the human kinetic technology principle and with the
form of the rib case in mind. By doing so we introduce the
flex edge. The sides of the harness are more flexible on
points where the load distribution allows it, as a result
the flex edge gives you more freedom of movement and painfull
ribs are history.
- Flex Edge:
While grabbing your board and tweaking out your tricks
the rib's can encounter the harnesses edge. The sides of
the harness is now more flexible on points where the load
distribution allows it.
- Twin Batten
Load Distribution Frame: Some parts of the
body can handle pressure better than other parts. The internal
twinbatten load distribution frame actively coordinates
the distribution of the load around these parts of the body.
- Integrated Handle
Pass System Fix: As standard
on the Code 1 kite harnesses is a Handle Pass System with
a PU tube connected to both Delta double power leashrings.
- Delta Double Power
you the ability to split the force on the leashrings in
half while the ring itself secured to the strongest part
of the harness.
- Battle Belt Waist
- Neoprene Belt:
This waist belt is secured on the
frame on the inside of the harness. The stretch in the belt
makes your harness feel comfortable from the moment you
put it on. The Velcro on the battle belt is positioned in
such a way that it won’t damage your suit, lycra or

For a soft feel and great
traction for a soft feel both on bare skin or a wetsuit.

- 3D Thermo
Moulded Foam Interior and Exterior: By using
the process of thermo moulding Mystic are able to add characteristics
we needed for comfort and looks.
- Safety Knife: Cuts
flying lines in an emergency.
- Quick release Clickerbar:
100% Safe and Easy to Use.
Mystic's patent pending Clicker Bar is super safe and so
easy to use, you can get out on the water even faster. Just
as the seatbelt in your car, you can hear the loud click,
which gives you the confidence that it is secure.
Every Penny! Robert
Having had Mystic in the past I chaged last
year to another brand. I just brought the Code 1 and used
it for 10 days solid.
The Code 1 Boa System does work! You know
when you tighten your harness as tight as you can, then go
kiting but half way through the harness starts to move due
to the pull of the kite?
Well I found tightening the harness as normal
on the ratchet straps and then tightening the Boa System as
you kite can be done whilst riding giving me the most comfortable
harness - it is worth every penny!
