The Hang Glider is extremely safe: When attached to the cable it can be secured with a manual brake lock. Once the rider (rescuer) mounts the Hang Glider, the brake is automatically locked and the Glider will not travel down the cable until the operator applies positive forward force to the brake lever. By simply pushing forward on the brake lever, the Glider will travel down the cable and descent speed is easily controlled by the operator. If the brake lever is released, the Glider will stop. This “deadman” style brake mechanism eliminates the chance for a runaway, even if the operator is incapacitated.The Hang Glider is equally at home on Gondolas, Trams, Zip Line applications and anywhere travel down a cable facilitates rescue. Our unique design allows the Hang Glider to be easily adjusted to fit cables from 30mm up to 56mm in diameter.
