Polyester vs Nylon Highlines
Highlines are mainly composed of one of two kind of synthetic fibers: polyester or polyamide (known also as nylon). Both materials have very high resistance properties. Polyester is the more resistant to traction and wear of UV rays, while Nylon presents greater stretch and the fibers make therefore the webbing softer and more pleasant to body touch.
The minimum strength required for highline webbing
Up to date, there are no certifications for highlining which impose minimum safety standards for the practice of this sport. SLACK-INOV suggests to never use webbings with a breaking strength lower than 30 kN. This is not a value to guarantee the safety of your set-up, but it is nowadays a standard among manufacturers, in order to give a suggested minimum level for the safety of a highline set-up.
