Skylotec Rider 3.0
The long awaited Rider 3.0 is a great piece of equipment. Skylotec has, as the only ones, designed and produced a piece of equipment that completely eliminates the absolute greatest danger of via ferrata. In particular, the danger of large fall factors.
As on a regular via ferrata set, you have two slings. However, the difference here is that one carabine is replaced with a mechanical wire clamp that grips / clamps around the wire in case of a fall. In this way, the climber can avoid falling far, thus avoiding exposing the body to great forces.
At the end of the two slings is the carabiner which is mounted on the climbing harness. This carabiner is a Skylotec double twistlock that caters for both right and left-handed users.
As a small pendant on Rider 3.0 sits a small piece with cut semicircles indicating max. size and min. size of steel cables where Rider 3.0 can be used.
Via the ferrata kit, live dampers comply with the applicable standards in the area. The shock absorber is a two-stage type that makes it possible to use the equipment of both children (from 25kg) to adults (up to 120kg). A great advantage of rental.
