    – Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users

  • Minimal bulk:

    – Compact energy absorber facilitates handling

    – FLEX version with 150 cm of elasticized webbing to avoid hindering progression

  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber

    – Frequent connection/disconnection: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING positioning accessory (included with the lanyard)
