Different construction methods can be used for rock climbing and mountaineering harnesses. Generally, a user's safety is ensured by the use of narrow webbing on either the interior or exterior of the harness, located at the middle or sides of the comfort zone. In order to absorb the energy produced during a fall more effectively, pressure should be optimally distributed on all body contact parts.
In order to distribute pressure on both hips and thighs as evenly as possible during a fall or whilst at a belay, BEAL have devised a new manufacturing process in order to minimise the effects of impact force. Web-Core is a broad yet thin and light peice of webbing which is laser cut to match the harness shape and is laminated (at high tempeature) to both the interior and exterior of the harness. This webbing, which is the same size as the comfort parts, assures optimal pressure distribution without compression zones where the body is in contact with the harness. There are numerous benefits to this innovation: it allows for thinner, compact and lighter weight harnesses whilst increasing comfort.
BEAL Web-Core technology can be divided into 3 lines:
PROGRESS - Non-laminated Web-Core technology, to progress in complete confidence
SOFT - Non-laminated Web-Core technology with foam padding, for ultra comfortable harnesses
COMPACT - Laminated Web-Core technology with wider belt, for ultra comfortable and compact harnesses.
Here we have the VENUS SOFT, a lightweight adjustable harness which can be adjusted to suit all feminine figures thanks to its two sizes and Dynamic-Fit (Black Diamond licence) leg loop adjustment system. Like the REBEL, it benefits from the latest Web-core technology which provides exceptional levels of comfort thanks to optimal pressure distribution on hips and thighs.
