The Zippey Trolley is bi-directional, so there’s no wrong way to fit it. Zippey offers a one handed action with either a single or double locking mechanism for increased safety. The Zippey has a speed rating of 60mph (90kph), which is based on the use of the same high spec deep groove, double row ball bearings, as used in our Zipspeed range. The expected life of the bearings should be more than 1000 miles (1500km).
Having consulted zipline operators from around the world throughout the development of the Zippey, we have succeeded in incorporating all the positive features needed to overcome the challenges faced by the industry.
Zippey is manufactured from high-spec 4mm aluminium plate, has a forged Aluminium gate and Stainless Steel wheels; all of which offer the best weight to performance ratio on the market. The Zippey trolley weighs 450g (1.0lb), [equaling the weight of the Petzl Trac+], yet has an MBS of 25kN (5620lbf) and therefore exceeds the 2260kg (5000lb) rating required by US standards, as well as being fully CE approved.
Standard sealed bearings help prevent ingress of debris. Optional greasable bearings are ideal for sites where there is a significant problem with sand/dust or saltwater ingress, as a means of extending the life of the trolley. Special axles have a machined ‘labyrinth’ inside them, which allows the operator to inject grease into the bearings, as and when required. Zippey is designed to accept a 25mm (1”) wide webbing, which can be chokehitched directly into it. The attachment hole has radiussed edges to minimise lanyard wear. Durable Acetal end stops protect the trolley frame. Zippey can be supplied with standard, flat end stops, or is available with hooked end stops (as an optional extra), onto which you can mount a secondary lanyard. One handed action with either a single or double locking mechanism for increased safety. The simple, yet secure spring-loaded double locking gate mechanism can be easily operated with finger or thumb. The gate mechanism features a twin keylock (anti-snag) nose for strength and security. The gate closure is effected by a standard Stainless Steel Karabiner gate spring, ensuring a smooth, positive and long-life action.
