Many divers worldwide are already familiar with the Razor Sidemount Diving System, a tried and tested side mount harness that is already being used globally by technical divers in diverse diving disciplines.
Imitation is the most straightforward form of flattery. Although many have tried to copy the Razor Sidemount Diving Harness, no one has even come close, let alone making it better. Until now!
The New Razor Sidemount System 2.5
The upgraded Razor 2.5 harness still maintains the original’s simplicity, functionality, and style but has new improvements to complement the rest of the Razor Side Mount System.
All unique RH parts have been water-jet cut from 11 gauge 316 corrosion-resistant stainless steel and tumbled and passivated.
Razor redesigned the Delta Shoulder Plate (DSP) for a more ergonomic fit of the shoulder straps and now has more attachment points for both the T weight system and the BAT wing. They also adapted the Mini Back Plate (MBP) to work with both the BAT wing and the T Weight system. The Drop Attachment Points (DAPs) have been redesigned to give a more extensive capture and working area, making them easier to find and more space to clip multiple items off. Also, the DAP’s act as attachment points for the new modular T weight system.
The new waist closing system has a low profile. It can be tensioned or released with just one hand so that the harness can be adjusted quickly and efficiently even while diving if needed due to suit compression during descent, for example.
A new “B” ring provides more capture area for a more effortless organization in a place where you are working by feel alone. Being able to organize items on the “B” ring also makes it easier to keep multiple things separated for quick identification and retrieval.
Also, the “B” ring Tri-glide design allows the Razor Bat Wing to expand without restriction and without affecting the RH when lots of buoyancy is required. It also keeps it as low profile as possible while still giving you full access to all the harness attachment points.
The Complete Razor Sidemount System 2.5 has the following components:
- Razor Harness 2.5.
- Redundant BAT Wing 2.5.
- T Weight System.
- Universal Spares Kit.
- Spare Side Mount Bungee.
- 2 Double ender stainless steel clips to attach the Expandable Side Mount Pouch.
- Expandable Side Mount Pouch 2.5.
The Razor Sidemount designer made each component of the system complement and work with every other part of the Sidemount Diving harness.
Using the Razor Sidemount Diving System
Getting the Razor harness correctly configured is very important, but it is only half the story. The other half of the story is training. Proper training from an experienced Razor Sidemount Diving Instructor will be invaluable and allow you to maximize safety, enjoyment, and efficiency.
