Schroth Flexi 2x2 6 Point Hans Harness Waist Belts 2" vs 3":
All Schroth Flexi Belts are 2" (50mm) wide and are more effective that the 3" (75mm) waist belt.
Why is 2" webbing more effective than 3" webbing? Let's start looking at the shape of our human body. The Iliac Crest (IC) is the part of the pelvic bone that sticks out above the hips. 2" webbing fits entirely within the recession created by the Iliac Crest, where 3" webbing rides up and possible over the top of the Iliac Crest.
Since the 2" webbing fits well within the Iliac Crest of the pelvis, it is less likely to slide up above the crest and cause submarining, a condition where the body slides down below the lap belt, possibly causing internal organ damage.
Since the 2" webbing rides inside the Iliac Crest, it can be worn as much as 1" to 1.5" tighter and at the same time is more comfortable for the driver.
Research shows that the faster the pelvis is captured, the lower the resultant loads on the chest, head, and neck. There is no difference in the strength of the 2" webbing vs the 3" webbing. All webbing - 2" or 3" - must meet the same FIA homolgation test loads.
There is an additional benefit of the 2" lap belts. The required force to properly and tightly adjust the belts in the car is much easier than with 3" belts.
Schroth Flexi 2x2 6 Point Hans Harness Sub Belt:
Schroth Flexi 2x2 6 point harness has a dual sub strap system with T bar camlock connection.
For comfort, Schroth uses a double dog leg fabric style that lets the flat part of the belt touch you, not the side. Safety is #1 with Schroth and comfort is elevated beyond any other harness competitor.
Going back to safety, the buckle position is not just important, but paramount. For the loading of the belts to be properly spread over your pelvis, Iliac crest, and upper torso, you need the buckle to be positioned correctly.
To help position the belt easily the first time and quickly fine-tune the position for a multiple driver car, Schroth added two adjusters for you.
Sub-belt install time of a Schroth harness is 70% less than competitor harness sets.
