Welcome to ZIPLINEGEAR!
Our preferred zip line braking method is the Bungee Brake, bringing riders to a smooth and gentle stop. This type of brake is considered a passive braking system and not dependent upon the rider at all.
The mounted block on the zip line cable is made to slide freely. Attached to the block is a bungee cord. When the rider zips down the cable, near the 3/4 mark, the rider's trolley bumps into the block, as the rider continues travel, the bungee cord stretches and slows the rider down until they stop. The bungee cord retracts and the riders slide backwards on the cable until they reach the lowest point of the zip line.
Note: The maximum allowable slope is 6% (6 ft. drop per 100 ft. of distance) for zip lines that utilize a Bungee Brake.
Not only do you get the Bungee Brake, but you get the very best customer service in all the land.
If you're not happy, send it back for a full refund within one year.
