24,96€

Flat aluminum leashring to optimize friction on the slackline! 80mm inside diameter to allow connections and bananas to pass easily.

The flat surface Bomber highline ring

Our HIGHRING is a modern highline ring designed with an innovative geometry and a big inner diameter of 80 mm to pass easily split connections and backup loops.

It's made of drop forged aluminum with no welded connections, to obtain a smooth sliding surface.

The ring is anodized to increase its resistance up to a minimum breaking strength of 35 kN, and the weight lays at only 99 grams.

Passing highline segment connections will never be so smooth, and you will enjoy the wider webbing contact area during your highline sessions.

About the Highline leash

Dynamic rope threaded into a tubular webbing.

  • Rope: dynamic rope QUASAR 9,9 mm with uniform thread & dry treatment;
  • Sleeve: nylon tubular webbing 20 mm width, total diameter 12,5 mm;
  • Available models: CLASSIC leash or innovative DYNAMIC leash with crinkled sleeve;
  • Length: 335 cm standard or 360 cm extra-long;
  • MBS: with fig-8 knot: 20 kN;
  • Weight: 385 gr. for model 360 cm CLASSIC leash without rings;
  • Made in: Italy.

What is new with that optimized geometry as oval section?

The HIGHRING has an optimized inner geometry as in an oval shape which provides a bigger friction surface between ring and webbing. This feature minimizes the wear of your webbing in leashfalls. 

This aluminum ring guarantee great protection as highline safety ring to connect your leash to the Highline.

Furthermore, its rather large diameter makes it easier to slide over SPLIT connections, and it's so big that it can fit over a weblock, including the front pin.

Individually tested for guarantee

Each ring has been individually tested at 6kN. You can see this by the two pressure marks. These preload test marks do not affect the function of the ring.

The ring keeps an inner smooth surface to prevent any damage to your line, leash or body.

Best choice for segmented higlines

This leash ring is fantastic for freestyle rigs, where a big ring is needed. It's way lighter than a steel ring, which reduces the risk of injury when falling onto the ring.

Steel is ductile and can deform, while aluminum always guarantees its shape.

Warning

Not suitable as an anchor, only to be used as a highline leash ring.

Always make sure to fully read and understand the user manual before using highline gear.

Responsibility

Slacklining and more particularly Highline (in the void, secured by a harness) are sports practices that have no normative or regulatory framework for the manufacture of the material as well as for its installation.

This is why we do not guarantee our own equipment, or equipment we retail, for highline use.
Only "Easy Slackline" products are tested within our company and independent laboratories (mentioned on the product page) via a process that evolves with practice.

These resistance tests have no legal value, they aim to ensure the safety, resistance and comfort of use of our equipment - in the context of our practice.

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to choose the equipment with the appropriate resistance and to have the necessary experience to adapt the installation to his practice.
And to use appropriate equipment to secure oneself if necessary, such as PPE equipment (climbing gear, ropes, etc.).

Generalities

  • Do not install your slackline across a path, trail or place of passage
  • Do not install your slackline more than 2m from the ground without securing yourself with PPE equipment
  • Practice on grassy or cushioned ground free of any protruding objects or objects that could cause injury
  • Do a back up = secure your tension system
  • Never use a ratchet for highline practice
  • Never install your slackline on urban furniture (benches, lampposts, barriers, etc.)


Safety regarding highlining

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to use appropriate equipment to secure oneself if necessary, such as PPE (climbing equipment, ropes, etc.).

In NO CASE is this equipment designed to secure itself. For the lifeline - called backup - we advise to use only PPE standard material (climbing material, ropes, etc).
Unless expressly mentioned, no slackline element can be considered as PPE (personal protective equipment) for sports and leisure activities

NEVER USE SLACKLINE MATERIAL TO SECURE YOURSELF / TIE YOURSELF DOWN. IT IS NOT CLIMBING EQUIPMENT, NOR IS IT EPI STANDARD EQUIPMENT.

How to determine the tension in your slackline ?

  • Our spreadsheet :
    Thanks to the following sheet, you will be able to approximately know the tension into your gear (slings, shackle, slackline, etc.). You will then know if you are using it correctly, meaning correctly regarding the using advices and most important the strength limits.

  • The Linescale dynamometer
    This product allows you to mesure exactly what is the tension into your equipment.
