Top-end harnesses for serious trucks
IF YOUR VERSION OF OFF-ROADING IS AT THE COMPETITIVE END, especially the kind that involves speed, you won’t need any telling that safety kit is right at the top of your list. A good cage, good brakes, the best helmet you can afford and, of course, harnesses that’ll hold you in place however mightily you intend to mess up… these are all things to think about before you even start considering smaller matters like which engine to use.
There are three-point harnesses in the world, and four, and five. But the latest offering from Sparco, which is available via the good people at Demon Tweeks, is a six-pointer – and that, in case you were wondering, is what you call doing it properly.
The harness features 3” wide shoulder and lap straps, both of which have steel adjusters, and 2” crotch straps. All six straps are fitted with snap-on fixings and held by an aviation-spec aluminium quick-release buckle.
This harness is FIA-approved, and the shoulder straps are easily removable in case you want to fix them to a roll cage or harness bar. It’s supplied with eye bolt fittings and comes in a choice of black, red or blue, priced at £127.02 including VAT.
