The Raptor Basic Light is for your first foray into zip lining at an economical price. Hang from the handlebar and ride the wind!
The kit includes, 65’ of 3/16” cable, Tesa Speed trolley, handlebar, carabiner for attaching handlebar to the trolley, and three 3/16” wire rope clamps for fastening the cable. Suitable for persons up to 200 lbs.
Later when you are ready to move your zip line to another location with a longer run, all you need to do is purchase new cable – please contact us for cable sizing to safely match your new run length. The trolley and handlebar are compatible for upgrades to ¼”, 5/16” & 3/8” diameter cable from 100 feet to 500 feet in length. When cable is upgraded to a larger diameter size, weight limit increases to 350 lbs.
BASIC SET UP: Simply loop the cable around your starting point tree/post and feed through the loop on the cable end then loop around the ending point tree/post and fasten the cable with the 3 u-clamps provided. Set your trolley on the line and attach the handle bar with the carabiner and you are ready to go. A suggested slope of 3-5% from top to bottom (drop of 2-3 feet) is recommended**. If for children’s use only, ensure that they can touch the ground at the ending point or that an adult is present to lift them down. Full instructions will be included.
**Slide one end of the cable up or down one of your trees to adjust speed of ride.
