EQB decided to reinvent his gears. The new Prolock is a true marvel. It’s futuristic with a unique design in own piece of alu entirely machined in every angle. What a change !
120 grammes with 12 kN strength is more than correct. It also hollows soft shackle. What else Mister Clooney ?
Coming soon on www.eqb.cz !
Jerry shows the new Primitive Pro Kit from Balance Community. Super light with super good gear and webbing. Perfect to bring on road trips !
Landcruising has a full R&D department to push inovation. Their last inovation is a ropelock that copies the weblock system. It’s for rope. The system is an auto lock like the reverso.
The ropelock doesn’t seem more compact or lighter than a grigri. However the breaking strength is certainly higher. The worst enemy for a rope is rubbing: rubbing melt down the rope. This is hard to tell now if the ropelock avoid that particular issue.
The design is really nice. Landcruising signature style: tunning.
Let’s test it.
It’s official, the new weblock Landcruising will be out in june : Lynx 4.
Look at the picture, it’s well designed, tuned as you like !
Slackmoutain are not any longer the only ones to design their own tumpline banana in France, Slackinov’ makes their own too !! And as the name suggests it, it’s an innovation ! Its double whole makes it possible to take away the pulleys and put instead a soft release, which makes a lot less connectors and so weak spot. It’s « reveal revolutionary » ! In addition, you can use them with 25mm webbing thanks to spacers ! It’s really innovating. However, not like his little brother, the pin can not be taken away without taking away the connector (schakle…) first… not always very handy. About strength, it’s 8T for the breaking strength, against 15T for Slackmoutain, but it’s justified : 580g which is quite light !! The color stays red, it’s the brand trademark. For the price it’s 55 euros which is quite hard to beat ! We asked Lucas Laport, Slackinov’ athlete, to give us a few words about this new multifunction jumpline banana : « First it’s pleasing to get a rather inexpensive banana and very massive like this one to jump. When you have it in your hand you understand that this thing is hard ! The double hole system is really amazing, it allows many things, like the possibility to back up properly your banana but also the possibility to get rid of the pulleys and to use a soft release instead without a line-grip (by the way for 5cm wide line the line grip is useless anyway). You can also have spacers if you want to use closer webbing, personally I use it with the rage line (3,2 cm) and it’s perfect. The finishing is perfect and the thing is rather good looking ! I recommend this banana 10000 times !”
Here is the new invention from Jerry : the new shackle by Balance Community.
It’s really thin. The idea is to be able to fit everywhere. It’s great to have a product made by slackliner for slackliner ! Good job Jerry !
To get it, it’s here :
