Somnium Harness from Nova


The SOMNIUM offers everything cross-country pilots are looking for: comfort, an aerodynamic seating position with little drag and thanks to Hybrid Protection, an impressive degree of passive safety. At only 3.7 kilograms (size S), the walk to take-off is made a lot easier.


SOMNIUM – for cross-country pilots with dreams

The efficient XC machine

More safety. The SOMNIUM is fitted with an innovative Hybrid Protector. When the harness is taken out of the bag the foam begins to expand. Once in the air, the foam protection is augmented by an airbag. This cushion of air not only supports the pelvic area – but protects the whole back. In its class, the SOMNIUM offers a unique level of passive safety.

 More performance. The SOMNIUM is fitted with Split Loops. This ensures a comfortable seating position and simultaneously improves the performance of the wing during glides – the tendency to roll is damped and this has a positive impact on your glide ratio, especially in turbulent air. The streamlined design and slender pod underline this performance potential.
Less weight. The Hybrid Protection helps the harness become small for packing and lightweight.  The foam protector can be highly compressed and apart from the material, the airbag packs down to nothing. The SOMNIUM offers the complete package of performance, safety and little weight.

The protector for your airbag

The scoop is critical for the rapid inflation of the airbag. When the harness is packed into the rucksack there is the risk that this scoop could be damaged. This has a negative impact on the airbag’s inflation – in an extreme case the airbag may not inflate and the pilot is left without back protection.

The Scoop Protector is a zip, which, when open, adapts to the shape of the scoop. The scoop is made from plastic which is susceptible to deformation. The Scoop Protector holds the plastic against the harness. It can then be safely stored in the rucksack. This means that the scoop and airbag are protected from the effects of transport, wear and tear.


Very safe, very light. Hybrid Protection combines the advantages of foam and airbag protection: little weight, small packing size and a high degree of passive safety. Harnesses fitted with Hybrid Protection offer the perfect combination (and the benefits) of two protection systems.
Always in sight. Always within sight of both eyes and easy to deploy: front containers provide a high degree of safety – if only due to their visibility. This is one of the reasons we fit our harnesses (and in particular lightweight models) with front-mounted parachute containers.
The perfect fit. Our S and L sizes are not just scaled copies of the M size. Every size is individually designed. The result is Tailor-made Geometry: every pilot has the optimal seat position – no more “off the peg” disproportional geometry!
Light and durable.Lightweight harnesses combine low weight with a high durability and robustness. This is made possible by using high quality fabric and clever cutting to keep unnecessary material to a minimum.
Permanent protection. The scoop is critical for the rapid inflation of the airbag. This scoop can be damaged when placing the harness into the rucksack. The Scoop Protector prevents this damage.
