Woody Valley Skyway Karabiner
Woody Valley, in collaboration with Camp, developed the Skyway karabiner specifically for paragliding use.
It weighs just 48g and has a variable cross-section with increased strength (compared to the 14g-heavier Camp Para Twist Lock Evolution karabiner which preceded it) at the critical points.
- Thin and rounded end for easy hooking into the glider riser
- Slightly tilted upper side allowing even narrow risers to slide smoothly into the right position
- Blocking tooth preventing the karabiner from turning upside down through the webbing loop
- Lower side designed to help the correct placement of the rear adjustment webbings
- Raised fulcrum of the opening bar to prevent the ferrule from rubbing against the webbing and to ensure an effective opening when needed
Woody Valley say. “All tests conducted by the Politecnico of Turin showed a higher resistance during working cycles than our former karabiner model used since 2009”.
