Our Brakes

Certainly, the role of the brake in ensuring zipline safety is undeniable. Our advanced brake systems are designed to enhance and prioritize safety during the ziplining experience.

Selecting a zipline brake design for a commercial zipline involves considering various factors, such as anticipated landing speed, available braking and buffer zone lengths, the type of trolley, and budget constraints. While we typically initiate the planning of a zipline brake design during the early consulting stages, the confirmation and detailed planning occur after visiting the site and engaging in discussions with the client. This hands-on approach ensures a tailored solution that aligns with the unique requirements of each zipline, providing a safe and thrilling experience for participants while meeting specific operational needs.


Counterweight Progressive Brake

Meet the CPB Zipline Brake — an easy and safest choice in ziplining technology. Created with simplicity, it smoothly brings the rider from speeds up to 120 km/h to a complete stop, without unnecessary fuss. Developed to overcome traditional brake limits, CPB offers a reliable and straightforward solution for those high speed and smaller ziplines. 
CPB isn’t just the smoothest, fastest, and safest brake in the industry; it’s a simple solution, setting a new standard for secure ziplining experiences.
Pair it with the Kinetic Energy Absorber
Our zipline impact block system, known as KEA (Kinetic Energy Absorber), is meticulously designed to ease the strain on high-speed-zipline’s brake systems and minimizes the initial impact on the trolley to optimize its lifspan. This adaptable system seamlessly integrates with various brake types, be it hand-catching, magnetic, or progressive, accommodating both single and double ropes. Equipped with twin-point anchors, each with a total capacity of 50 kN, it ensures utmost safety and peace of mind. 
In essence, we assure that every design aspect of our ziplines is meticulously crafted for unwavering reliability and peak performance. Your ziplining adventure embodies our dedication to excellence.

 Eddy Current Magnetic

  While we don’t produce this brake ourselves, it’s sometimes the optimal choice. The magnetic zipline brake utilizes the dependable physics principle of eddy currents, triggered by the interaction between non-conductive metal and magnets. This guarantees reliable and efficient performance, halting riders at speeds reaching 70 km/h, regardless of weight. While adjustments for lighter arrivals are made, the braking may be slightly less gradual compared to a counterweight progressive brake, occasionally resulting in a somewhat abrupt impact.

 Spring Pack 

The Spring Pack Zipline Back-Up Brake, commonly known as EAD (Emergency Arrest Device), is a crucial safety feature. This resilient system, with its dynamic springs, ensures a secure emergency arrest, providing peace of mind during high-speed descents. Engineered for reliability, the EAD is an essential component in zipline safety protocols.
