About Slacklines

A slackline is essentially a wide piece of webbing stretched taught between two anchor points, often two trees. Unlike a tightrope, which is setup using an extremely taught metal cable, a slackline is made of woven nylon or polyester webbing, and is only stretched moderately taught using a ratchet. Slack is created as a person walks across the line, causing it to stretch. Walking a slackline is a great way to increase balance and agility, which is why slacklining has been a popular activity among rock climbers for several decades. Advanced slackliners can perform tricks, including bounces, jumps, twists and even flips. Thinking about setting up a slackline in your back yard? With an all-in-one slackline kit from Gibbon, getting started has never been easier.
