The Climbing Technology Top Shell Slider Set is a Via Ferrata set containing a slider and two K-Advance Shell carabiners, suitable for intensive use e.g. for hire.
Developed in accordance with the new safety standards, the Climbing Technology Top Shell Slider Set has a patent pending SLIDER, (a compact energy absorber) that ensures exceptional progressive braking and low impact force on the user in case of a fall. The set can be used by people weighing more than 40kg (88 lbs, without equipment) up to a weight of 120 kg (265 lbs, including the equipment), but the Slider will work most effectively when the user’s weight is in the intermediate range (60-80-100 kg). The wear resistant cover on the carabiners allows the set to withstand intensive use, making it perfect for group use or hire situations.
The K-advance Shell carabiners are hot-forged and lightweight and have a double gate for automatic locking. They are easy to use even with smaller hands and have the following main characteristics:
Ergonomic shape for an optimal handling, opening system that allows to clip and unclip into protections using one hand;
Easy to use by children;
Double gate automatic locking, extremely quick and safe;
Large clearance for hooking onto big diameter wires;
Catch-free nose to avoid snagging when clipping and unclipping;
With stainless steel wear-proof protection, for an enhanced resistance to abrasion on wire cables.
This product won the Industry Award in 2009.
