Below you can find new Dakine Pyro and Renegade reviews:
What we like:
The Pyro is pre curved into the shape of your back and packed with support. This makes the Pyro a really excellent choice for anyone who spends a lot of time on the water. Don’t worry, this doesn’t add weight or restrict your movement. We like that the Pyro is designed not to slip or move so once it’s on, you’re locked in for the duration of your session.
We’re big fans of the new spreader bar/pad system, which really helps stop the bar from riding up into your chest.
Make sure you don’t size your Pyro too big. When you first get your harness you should just be able to close the Velcro power belt – that’s a sign of a good fit.
The dual compression straps take a little more time to lock down than a wide single strap but are less likely to loosen during your session so your patience will be rewarded!
Why you want the Dakine Pyro:
When you go to a restaurant, it’s often advisable to ask the waiter what his favorite item on the menu is… that’s how we feel about the Pyro. With lots of our team riding this harness this year, it gets our pick as a top recommendation.
What we like:
The Renegade is extremely comfortable and lightweight without shedding the support. Stacking it up against the Pyro, the Renegade does have a shorter back, which we like for the added range of movement.
Another aspect that puts the Renegade high up on the happy scale is the durability. It’s very common to get multiple seasons of solid use out of the Renegade without experiencing much wear and tear. When you combine that with the price tag, it’s excellent value for money.
If you spend a lot of time riding without a wetsuit, you will appreciate that the Renegade will slide around instead of remaining fixed when you’re riding toeside or taking long tacks. The result is that is often feels like the Renegade is working with you, not against you.
