BOULDER, Colorado – As Zip Line builders around the world strive for higher, longer, and faster in their latest builds, we wanted to provide a product that enabled that desire. The zipSTOP SPEED has been added to our zipSTOP Brake family to enable arrival speeds up to 45 mph.
Head Rush Technologies zipSTOP products are featured on many of the most prominent zip lines around the world. Known for their self-regulating eddy current braking technology, zipSTOPs provide increased throughput and amazingly comfortable braking regardless of rider weight and across a variety of speeds.
The new zipSTOP SPEED was designed specifically as a solution to those zip line builders who are building their lines at faster speeds than ever before. “There has been an industry trend in the last few years to outbuild zip line braking technology. Head Rush has decided to step up and address this trend with the SPEED and provide technologically advanced zip line braking for high speed applications.” Luke Winkler, Head Rush Technologies Product Manager
