The Italian manufacturer of harnesses presented the Skyway carabiner that they will be using in their range. Designed in cooperation with Camp specifically for paragliding use, it is lighter and stronger than the one used formerly in Woody Valley harnesses.

The Skyway introduces features like the slightly tilted upper side that allows risers to slide smoothly into the right position, even narrow ones, or a blocking tooth that prevents the carabiner from turning upside down through the webbing loop.

1) Thin and rounded end for easy hooking into the glider riser 2) Slightly tilted upper side allowing even narrow risers to slide smoothly into the right position 3) Blocking tooth preventing the karabiner from turning upside down through the webbing loop 4) Karabiner lifetime 5) Production patch code and karabiner ID number 6) Lower side built to help the correct placement of the rear adjustment webbings 7) Raised fulcrum of the opening bar to prevent the ferrule from rubbing against the webbing and to ensure an effective opening when needed

The Skyway carabiner weighs 48 grams (14 grams less than the former Camp Para Twist Lock Evolution Karabiner) and, according to the manufacturer, its overall strength has increased in all the critical points. “All tests conducted by the Instituto Politecnico of Turin showed a higher resistance during working cycles than our former karabiner model used since 2009”, say at Woody Valley.
