Helium is some very interesting slackline webbing. With its 38 g/m it is very lightweight. With its stretch of 3% at 8 kN it is very low stretch as well. Third it is some very flat webbing. This makes it packing very small. This combination makes it an ideal choice for your travel webbing because you have a lightweight webbing that's very easy to tension and packs very small in your travel package. With a minimum breaking strength of 24 kN Helium is very strong too. You can use it for your low tension longline projects as well as for waterlines or lowlines.
Due to its light weight Helium is very easy to walk. In low tension long lines it's very easy to simply push the webbing to the place where you need it to be. Rodeo is very easy to learn on it too.
ThermaStretch: Helium webbing is heat set, to provide a very smooth and even stretch over all tensions.
HydroShield: Helium webbing is coated, so it's well protected against the influences of water, dust and dirt.

Helium is our official backup line in Canary Islands
I personally am comfortable with the webbing as a backup on highlines over 200m. At this length I'm ok with the stretch characteristics and strength. I would not use it as a back up if abrasion to the cliff side is a concern.. but at that point your rigging wrong anyways. I personally will extend my anchors so that my webbing is in space therefor less of a concern about rock abrasion etc. I'm comfortable with leash abrasion with these specs. Long distances use less tapes which means your backup doesn't need to be as loose, therefore not too large of a shockload if you were to fall on to the backup. I like the weight, color, price and heat resistance. Like I said, I only use it on 200meter plus+. But I don't recommend on anything shorter
If you are looking for a rodeo line get this one
It's so light. It's fun to learn big rodeo lines with it.
