Introducing the all new "Heavy", a powerful, high weight, nylon webbing with bounce like no other line out there.
This 100 grams per meter beast that is called Heavy is a monster of a webbing. Sporting a 45 kN MBS and a thickness of 5mm, this stuff is absolutely incredible. Don't let the big weight fool you though, Heavy still packs quite the bounce. With a stretch of 8.87% at 6 kN (13.12% at 10 kN), you can get some serious flex on this webbing!
Available in 50m, 60m, 100m, and 120m lengths with sewn loops on both ends, or as a custom length by the meter without sewn loops included.
Made in the US
Heavy is an incredibly burly slackline webbing. This beast of a line packs a huge 45 kN MBS, is made from 100% nylon, which adds significant load dampening through it's high stretch, AND has our signature LineSkin resin coating, giving even more abrasion resistance and longevity! We have never had such a powerful, robust, and strong webbing in our shop prior to this.
If you are looking for webbing that can withstand just about anything you throw at it, this is your line. Great for high tension lines, heavy training lines, or even freestyle training lines!
Typically, a webbing with as much mass as Heavy comes with very little stretch. That's due to the sheer amount of material that is in the weave. However, through some clever weaving trickery and use of the highest elasticity fibers we could get our hands on, Heavy packs a very high stretch, matching and even beating some of our other nylon webbings.
With that in mind, that makes Heavy usable and actually quite fanastic for freestyle rigs. Use the added mass to gain more momentum in your bounce and to have more force in the uplift. Our favorite way to rig Heavy is side-by-side with a standard freestyle rig and swap back and forth between the lines. The added weight from the Heavy will train your muscles much faster and make the normal freestyle rig feel like

Heavy uses a dying process to get the blue color. Because of this, we are limited in what colors we can add as secondary to the dyed webbing. Black is a color that can withstand the dying process without changing colors. Because of that, we can use it in the weave regardless of what color we decide to make the end product. That allows us to put stripes of color wherever we want, which is helpful in providing sided-ness for a solid-color webbing.
Heavy uses two thick, black lines on each edge of one face. This gives a large and obvious visual contrast to the blue, which is easy to spot over long distances.
Every one of the fixed length options for Heavy come with our Simple Sewn Loops on both ends of the line, free of charge! These simple sewn loops are sewn in a way that retains 85% or more of the strength of the webbing, which gives you a sewn and easy way to attach your line to your anchor. We've dimensioned the sewn loops such that many connectors can be attached to it at the same time, allowing backup anchors and multiple attachment points to be utilized.
We use a high strength 138-lb bonded polyester thread with a minimum of 300 stitches in each sewn loop in order to provide as much strength and longevity as possible. With our high quality tooling and professional grade sewing machine, we are able to achieve very high consistency with our sewn loops, providing a strong and reliable anchor point on all of our webbings.
The sewn ends have a sheath on the webbing in the sewn loop in order to protect a heavily abrasion-prone location on the line. This sheathing is made from a highly abrasion resistant cordura Nylon sleeving material, ensuring the wear point of the sewn loop is protected for hundreds of uses. The color of this sleeving material will vary.
All fixed lengths (50m, 60m, 85m, 100m, and 120m) come with sewn loops on both ends. Any custom lengths do not include sewn loops, they must be added to your order separately.
