Introducing the all new Blue slackline webbing from Balance Community. Blue is a lightweight, low stretch, polyester webbing with excellent hand and feel.
A tightly woven surface provides excellent abrasion resistance and grip on both faces.
Bi-color design on the face provides an easy way to detect twists on longer lengths.
A soft and fluffy edge design allows for easy handling on longer lines and during catches or leash falls.
Designed and inspected in Lyons, CO. Manufactured in United States.
One of the most advanced features of Blue is the Pillowed Edges. The internals on the edge contruction are made from 100% nylon fibers which stay loose even when the webbing is under tension. This allows the edges to be pliable and malleable while the line is tight, which gives the edges a pillow-feel, molding under your hands and feet when you grab and walk on the line. This feature makes Blue a true pleasure to interact with.
Unlike some of our other pillowed edge webbings, Blue remains the same thickness across the entire width, giving a very flat feeling under the foot. When dealing with nothing but the feeling of the line under your foot, these subtle nuances can make a big difference in the way a line feels to walk. Blue really capitalizes on that with a flat feel while retaining the benefits of the Pillowed edge.
With a mere 3.76% stretch at 6 kN, Blue has a very low stretch, making it ideal for longline applications. If tensions remain below 5 kN, that stretch curve is even more subtle, giving you the maximum ease of rigging.
Due to the lower stretch of Blue, it is recommended to only use it for highlines longer than 50m.

Blue uses just two colors for it's design: Blue and White. With these two colors, we've combined them in a way to make Blue look very complex and intricate. This color scheme is very pleasant to look at while cruising a big line, and also is quite visible with the sky or mountains as the backdrop.
Every one of the fixed length options for Blue 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.
