BUNGEE WITH A PURPOSE
We’ve developed the tension in the bungee section by prototyping in 10 – 35 knots winds, anchoring to fence posts, bull bars, rock platforms, coconut palms, sandbags & even driftwood.
HIGHLY VISIBLE COLOURS
Both Solo Straps are available in bright fluro orange making them easy to find in your kite bag & spot on the beach when coming in at the end of a session. The new stealth camo/black colour option is also available for both straps.
WATER RESISTANT COATING
Our super strong webbing is coated in a water-resistant film to minimise deterioration in the sun and water. This should also reduce colour fading by the sun. Warranty: Pretty simple really, you break it launching or landing your kite and we’ll replace it free of charge.
HIGH GRADE / LOW WEIGHT
High-grade aircraft aluminium carabiner for strength and light weight. The tensile strength of the aluminium carabiner is 2200kgf.
The tensile strength smaller marine grade stainless steel clip on the ‘Leia Safety Leash’ is rated at 250kgf, although our tests have it performing even better than that.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
The carabiner is made of high quality aviation aluminium. The tensile strength of the aluminium carabiner is 2200kgf. The tensile strength smaller stainless steel clip on the ‘Leia Safety Leash’ is rated at 250kgf, although our tests have it performing even better than that.
