This is the mainstay product of the majority of professional and recreational mushers. Most commonly seen on pictures of sled dogs around the globe, this harness is the traditional style of capturing a dogs pulling power. It is important the harness fits snugly, but not tightly around the neck and extends along the back stopping just short of the tail.
As well as sledding and dryland mushing, this harness can be used for skijoring, bikejoring, canicross / Cani-X, and dog scootering. The X-Back harness when used correctly captures the complete power of the dog from the shoulders through to the back legs.
Designed for speed and reliable comfort, the X-back design keeps the harness in place, controls vertical motion, but doesn't restrict the dog's gait. The "Sliding X" on top allows the harness to compensate for different dogs, and for the off-center pull of standard gangline hitches.
