Element is most similar to webbings that were originally used by the very first slackline pioneers in Yosemite 30 years ago, however it comes with a bit more modern weave yet with the same “slack feel” the original ones used to have. (Price for meter. Specify the required length.)
We’re talking about a nylon (PAD) 25mm webbing that properties-wise is very different to classical “European” polyester. Its high ductility has essentially made it perfect for shorter lines such as surfing or rodeo.
To increase the line’s strength, Element can be threaded with a thinner Bounce webbing providing maximum line safety capable of working under 3,5 tons load. Rounded edges and high stretch are appreciated mainly on shorter highlines.
The webbing livery, gold and blue with black edges, helps revealing twisted line and eases the line tensioning as well. Rounded edges make walking on and falling from Element very comfortable.
Element is made in the Czech Republic.

Without having been threaded with Bounce, Element is not to be used on highlines! Only materials capable of working under at least 3ton breaking strength can be used and even then it is imperative to get familiar with all safety rules, and possess sufficient tensioning experience. We also recommend taking some highline course.
To increase the line’s strength, Element can be “stuffed” with a thinner Bounce webbing providing maximum line safety capable of working under 3,5 tons load. Rounded edges and high stretch are appreciated mainly on shorter highlines.
