VORTEX "One ring to rule them all"
VORTEX is the first clip and go connector of leash and highline. Simply thread the leash through our VORTEX, clip it into your already tensioned highline set-up and follow the manual to make the knot correctly and lock it safely.
The big innovation of the leash passing around the VORTEX gives you an unmatched sensation of walking without being followed by a ring at all. It's feather light weight and the rope padding are also a prevention against potential serious leash fall impacts on a highliner's body.
Patented technology, the ring follows the highliner
VORTEX is a unique ring in the world, that allows you to install and remove the leash after rigging. You can use it on any already rigged highline and you can leave your highline installation even more safely over night, by removing leash and ring easily before leaving.
If you have more than one highline to walk on the same day, you can finally have your personal gear that follows you during all sessions.
A great choice for both, if you are at your first experience or you are an expert-highliner that helps during potential rescue missions.
Inner diameter vs outer diameter
With the new era of SPLIT segment connected highlines, there has been a need for bigger and bigger inner diameter rings in order to pass through the SPLIT connections easily. The down side is that the bigger the ring's inner diameter the heavier, and this increases the risk during possible impacts, caused by a leashfall.
Our VORTEX has an inner diameter of 65 mm to keep weight the lowest possible and to still easily cross SPLIT segment s. It has a special geometry, completely different compared to any other classic rings: the leash rope is threaded all around the outer diameter of the ring, which has been tested over years and comes out, by the opinion our expert highline testers, to be a revolutionary sensation of walking without being followed. According to their feedback (5/5 stars ratings only), crossing the SPLIT connections works perfectly smooth and easy.
Reduce risks of injury
The very light weight of the VORTEX limits the risk of injury. The leash is covering for 3/4 the outside surface of the ring offering an additional protection against impacts.
While walking, VORTEX stays always in the same orientation, with its padded surface on the top, so already that is making it safer than a general, metal leash ring. Finally VORTEX surface avoids the harsh sliding against your heels while you are descending a steep highline.
Highlining dynamic movements - is it safe?
Yes. All testers confirm, using a VORTEX for their highline sessions is as safe as any other ring, if not even safer.
During dynamic movements like in highlining, there is a higher risks of hitting the leashring and to get hurt. Here is why highliners prefer light and padded leashrings.
Our best athletes select VORTEX as their favourite ring for dynamic movements in highlining.
VORTEX is not a PPE device. Read carefully its instruction manual before use, it is important to know how exactly and which knot to use to connect your leash.
