The main premise behind the 2" lap belt is one of added safety. A 2" belt rides within the crest of the human pelvis where a 3" belt would rest on the edges. This allows you to get the belt up to an inch and a half tighter. That means the lap belt will be working earlier in the accident event because it gets loaded faster. It's also more comfortable.
In the Hybrid belts, the 2" lap belt is configured as a Pull-Up, giving you the best leverage to tighten the belts. And because there is less friction in a 2" belt, it's easier to adjust in the first place.
The Hybrid style sub strap setup is a new technological breakthrough from Schroth. Each sub strap has a loop sewn in the end which wraps around the hardware for the lap belts. The lap belts then click into the cam lock and provide for a more efficient and comfortable transfer of energy to the cam lock.
The HANS specific shoulder belts are designed to make HANS use safer and more comfortable. The belts start as 3" webbing at the cam lock, then after the length adjuster they are 2" webbing which fits completely on the HANS yoke. This gives you the optimal force distribution, entirely on the surface of the HANS. A standard 3" belt will work, however some of the load is not distributed on the HANS. This also can be a comfort issue with some of the webbing falling off the HANS.
Another important feature of the HANS specific shoulder belts is the ability to move the anchor points towards each other to achieve the perfect installation geometry. This will help in the Post-Impact phase - very important in a roll-over situation as well.
