Brave 4 | Swing


The Brave 4 is the ultimate Speed Riding, Speed Flying and Hike & Fly Paragliding harness. It’s ultra-comfortable, lightweight and features a very practicable reversible harness/backpack. It offers optimum mobility for Speed Riding with skis and it is perfectly suitable for Speed Flying. It’s super light, less bulky and is perfectly suited to off-piste and wild area use.



Brave 4 – whatever you want!

Swing’s brand new Brave 4 features the modular Brave ZIPON System, making it the quick-change artist among convertible harnesses. It only takes seconds to adapt the Brave 4 for your particular purpose; Whether it’s ground handling, speed riding, speed flying, hike and fly or paragliding. The harness is light in weight, with an impressive comfort, durability and a sleek, minimalistic design in all adaptable modes.

The Brave 4 airbag module is unique in its category. It is attached at seven points, thus forming, together with the harness module, an LTF-certified, compact unit. Its damping values are excellent for this class and compare well with modern standard harnesses.


Brave 4-Basic module
The Brave 4-Basic module is a comfortable ultra-light harness, which adjusts perfectly to your body and follows every movement. This mode is suitable e.g. for ground handling or quick hike and fly’s.

Brave 4-speed riding/speed flying mode
The rear storage pocket is approx. 22 litres, which provides sufficient capacity for the most important gear needed by speed riders/speed flyers. Like the previous model, the Brave 4 offers optimum contact to the glider, both with and without skis.

Together with the Brave ZIPON backpack module, the Brave 4 becomes a full-featured convertible harness with an extremely functional alpine backpack, which can also be used as a stand-alone backpack. In harness mode, the backpack disappears completely into the rear storage pocket and there is still enough storage space for extra luggage.

In backpack mode, it has enough space even for “normal” paragliders up to at least size M, depending on how it is packed, and there are various attachment options for ski and/or trekking equipment.

The ventilated back system makes it extremely comfortable to carry, even on extended trips.

Brave 4-paraglider mode
The airbag module is installed in just a few steps and turns the Brave 4 into a comfortable EN/LTF-certified convertible paraglider harness.

Nitinol reinforcing rods ensure that the airbag operates perfectly even during the launch phase. If a front reserve and a speed system are also installed, the Brave 4 is the perfect solution for travellers and social pilots who want to be equipped with a small paraglider backpack for all eventualities.
