RIDER 3.0 Klettersteigset

SKYLOTEC RIDER 3.0

 
Award   GOLD WINNER 2017
Category   Climbing equipment
Company   SKYLOTEC GmbH

The RIDER 3.0 is the safest via ferrata set on the market. In the event of a fall, the free-running ascender brakes automatically, preventing a fall to the next anchor point. Example: Climb above an anchor point by the length of a via ferrata set arm (1.20 m), fall distance = 2 x arm length, plus distance between the 2 anchor points (ca. 5 m), i.e. up to 7.40 m, plus up to a further 2.20 m of tape energy absorber braking length. In extreme cases, this could give a fall distance of 9.60 m. The RIDER 3.0 minimizes fall distance to just 2.40 m plus energy absorber braking length (120 kg=1.40 m, 40 kg=55 cm). Worst-case scenario: 3.80 m, instead of 6 m with a conventional via ferrata set.


Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Design


Jury Statement

We feel that the Rider 3.0 represents an important step forward in via ferrata safety. The free-running ascender brakes automatically in the event of a fall. This significantly reduces the fall distance which helps prevent injuries. It also allows the user to rest anywhere.
