 Even more protection and comfort

Once again, safety was our top priority. The SUCCESS 5 has an additional SAS-TEC element on the entire back. The completely redesigned protector has much better damping values and a folded volume of 20 %. Another new feature is the integration of a Hook-Knife in the shoulder strap. The additional foam protector for the lumbar and thoracic vertebrae has also found its place in this 5th generation model.

The proven features of the series, such as the ergonomic back section with 3D seat cover - for maximum comfort - and the Balance-Strap-System - which makes it easier to sit and stand up in the harness - have of course been retained. A sporty, sharp design ensures a clean silhouette and the best possible aerodynamics.


The ergonomically designed 3D seat cover provides the SUCCESS 5 with the highest degree of comfort. In addition, the protector, foam supports, comfort foam and SAS-TEC elements are arranged in such a way that the entire length of the rider's back is perfectly supported.

The principle of the balanced sliding support attachment system helps the pilot slide back into the harness after take-off, and facilitates his return to the upright position in the harness before landing. This traditional balance arrangement responds to shifts in the pilot's body centre of gravity accentuated by the legs folding in after take-off and then extending the legs before landing.


A new SAS-TEC element protects the entire back area of the SUCCESS 5 and complements the comfort foam. A foam protector, two additional foam sections and the SAS-TEC elements protect the lumbar vertebrae as well as the thoracic vertebrae and pelvis.


The SUCCESS 5 is now equipped with a high-quality roof cutter, integrated into the shoulder strap, which is clearly visible and attached to a rope.

[SUCCESS 5 Advance User Manual]



The brand ADVANCE has always been synonymous with quality, innovation and attention to detail. As pioneers in the world of paragliding, they have always been in tune with the pilots. With Swiss precision, their glider models meet the highest demands and are refined year after year. Absolute quality and reliability, both in the air and in their services.
The paragliding sport harness is a very comfortable harness, designed for long duration or acrobatic flights. It is not the lightest of the range, but it is a strong and stable harnessThe seat is made from a single piece of wood and is fitted with a number of adjustments to make it one with you. Mostly with a tray for more comfort and precision in piloting, it can accommodate a reserve parachute under the seat. Two types of protectionsThe LFT and CE certified harnesses are integrated into the harness to ensure passive safety both during take-off and in the event of a hard landing. Airbag or foam, both have their advantages! Foambag protection : It is a compact 12 or 17 cm foam bumpair that usually goes up the back of the harness. Reinforced under the seat, it guarantees a maximum of safety, and this from the moment of take-off. This is the type of protection found on acro harnesses for example, or seaside harnesses that are sensitive to sand. Some brands such as Advance now offer compressible foam to make them more compact. Airbag protection : Most often, it is a preformed bag that inflates with air in the first few seconds of flight thanks to a snap ring that allows it to be shaped quickly. Compact and ultra-light, this protection is favoured by the majority of pilots because of its small size. This type of protection is used for reversible harnesses in particular, with the airbag turning over and acting as a backpack. Some brands offer a manual airbag system, which ensures active safety from take-off. The harnesses are constantly evolving!
