A Fireline at Move Copenhagen

7/17/2019 1:51 PM

Daniel Bo Oleson on the Fireline at MoveCopenhagen Festival

 

We have no words for what happened last weekend at MoveCopenhagen - Daniel Bo Olesen walked this incredibly insane fireline for example, naked! 
If you have never been to MOVE Copenhagen, you should definitely consider going there with your slackline-, acro- and movement- friends next summer. We can promise you: it's an amazing gathering of community minded people in the spirit of the beauty of movement. Amazing atmosphere and hundreds of like minded people meet to share all of their experiences. Definitely worth the travel to Copenhagen!
If you'd like to train your slackline skills to become as balanced as Daniel before the next MOVE, you might find the best slackline gear in our slackshop: https://raed-slacklines.com

The new RODEO weblock is here

6/13/2019 2:56 PM

raed slacklines RODEO weblock for rodeolines

The next generation RODEO weblock is finally here! We received lots of feedback on our first version, so we collected all that feedback and improved the known version in many little details:

* smoother pretensioning

* ball lock pin for simpler handling

* higher webbing guidance for better alignment during huge surfs

* increased space at the back for easier webbing handling

* increased strength

The weblock weighs a total 136 grams, has a WLL of 4 kN and a MBS of 13 kN. This ultralight weblock is prohibited for tricklining and highlining, it's dedicated for rodeo lines only. It's available in our shop now: https://raed-slacklines.com/rodeo-weblock

We did some tests and found an interesting result when we tested a sewn loop on a soft shackle. * Used webbing: raed Helium (MBS 24 kN), 6mm Soft Shackle (MBS 42 kN) * the webbing broke at 14,9 kN - nearly 10 kN below the original MBS Our conclusions: * smaller diameter vs bigger diameter significantly reduces the MBS even in "static" situations * There are things about soft connections that we don't know about in total yet. * We wouldn't recommend the use of soft connections for highline rigs in this form. * We will put much more research into this in the future. Stay safe and keep the balance

Whoopies on Trees as Slackline Anchors? Well, you might want to read this... Today I had an interesting experience: I've been to Berlin's Tiergarten to take some photos of our new 5:1 pulley system and of course to session a bit on the Rainbow line too. Tiergarten is one of the most central and propably most policed parks in Berlin. Chancellor Angela Merkel's office is less than 500m away, you can see her balcony from the place where I rigged my line. The castle of Germany's president is in about 600m distance. So you might be right, if you assume a very high police presence and a strong presence of park rangers taking care of the order in that park. I've rigged my 40m longline many times in the park and sometimes the rangers came along and talked to me about it. The same happened today: It took about 20 minutes until they appeared in their park ranger car and checked, what I was doing there. He got out of the car, introduced himself and talked to me: "Well, here we have a slackline, right? Let's see if you have good tree protection, otherwise we have to ask you to leave!" He went over to my anchor and checked the 6mm dyneema whoopie and the TreePRO I used. "Hmm, that's interesting. Usually we have guys with some thin towels, we regularly have to make them derig their lines. But this... This is really good." He asked a colleague to come over and check it. They looked at it and I handed them one of the TreePROs I had in my backpack. "You have some stiff reinforcement in this?" he asked. "Yes, we made them especially for the use with these thin ropes, to spread the load to a wider area" - "Well, that's the best protection of a tree I've ever seen in a slackline. If you ever have any trouble in this park by one of my colleagues, just tell them my name (he repeated his name to me) and that I checked this. I see no reason to make you derig. This is really sophisticated." - Yes, he really said this. What I learned afterwards: He's the second chief of the park rangers for this area in Berlin. And he likes whoopies on trees with the raed TreePRO. If you told me that story yesterday, I would have laughed. But this really happened to me today. Happy slackline face for me now :) whoopie as a slackline anchor on a tree with tree protection

We know a little bit about Dyneema. And during the last 24 hours we received many questions about soft shackles for the connection of webbing pieces in long highlines. Here are some of our concerns, that we want to share with the community: 1.: We have no secure locking mechanism in soft shackles. Race sailors use soft shackles a lot. We come from a harbor city with many sailors, so we asked some: The answer is unanimously: Every then and when a soft shackle simply opens up in difficult situations and the sail gets blown loose. This happens to them, they know it and they have no serious harm from that. But we definitely would have severe damage if a soft shackle fails in a highline rig! 2.: A 1000m highline of 50m pieces needs at least 40 soft shackles from the method shown in Ryan's video. It's like the lottery: If you have one ticket, you have one chance to win. If you have 2, your chances double. So if you have 40 soft shackles in your rig, your chances of a "lottery win" increase by a lot. 3.: Taping. We tried it and are not really convinced. Taping on rope is not really a method that might last throughout multiple days with all weathers. I mean, we all have to reset and retape some paddings every then and when due to movement and weather. So we can't really recommend that, to securely lock soft shackles. 4. Additional splices/knots in the shackle. We know about that but we're not completely convinced about that either - yet. Maybe some further testing is needed here, but our first tries were not as promising as we hoped :/ We hope this helps to answer some of you guys' and girls' questions about that topic. We put lots of energy in the development of new Dyneema techniques and lots of research in the progress of our community regarding rigging techniques with Dyneema. But at this moment we honestly believe there is a lot more research needed on this issue before any of this should be sold by slackline companies or recommended in highline technique videos. Stay safe and keep the balance :)

Russia's slack community is vivid. Moscow slackgirl Elena Kustowa sends her first 20m highline on MOTM webbing in this picture on a railway bridge near the metropolis. Get your own MOTM in our slackline shop: https://raed-slacklines.com/motm-tubular-nylon-slackline-webbing
