Do I need a braking system?Updated 2 years ago

The maximum allowable slope is 3% (3’ feet drop per 100’ feet) for zip lines that will not utilize a braking system. Please carefully review how to calculate slope & sag in the Zip Line Gear handbook included with your purchase.  Alternatively, you can review the information in the digital version of our handbook right here.
