11. How often should I replace my Slackline?

Before you set up your Slackline, it is good to check if you must replace your webbing: you should consider the frequency of use. With regular use (once a week), the Slackline should be replaced after 1 year. The life of the webbing depends on several factors: the use (or misuse), the contact with water (especially if salted water), the exposure to the sun, the atmospheric agents, the temperature, the dust and the dirt. If your webbing has abrasions greater than 2 mm, you must replace it immediately. When you don’t use your Slackline, keep it clean, in a dark and dry place.

Expert tip

It’s fundamental, when you learn how to mount a slackline, to check the correct wrapping of the webbing into the ratchet roll. It is equally important that the line does not rub against trees, rocks, etc. Therefore, we recommend you to use always the tree protections.




“To engage in the art of balance, you’ll need determination and a flexible and elastic length of webbing, between 2.5 and 5cm wide, stretched between two anchor points (eg. two trees, but it could be anywhere). In addition to walking, you can also do jumps and tricks on the Slackline, depending on what speciality you choose between Tricklining, Longlining and Highlining”.




“... the Longline is not just a length of webbing over 30 metres long, it’s a journey: tell the truth, you never thought that a line just 2.5cm wide would be enough! This long line has no real limits, only the ones you set yourself. To learn, you’ll require particular skills and concentration: your line can be taut or slack, depending on the level of difficulty and the type of activity you want to perform. Your long webbing will take you far... the current record is only 1,020m! Think you can do better?”




“...Highline is height, excitement, adrenaline and vertigo...! Highlining is the most extreme expression of slacklining around, practised with a particular kind of webbing installed very high up: between 7 and 1000m. How can you learn to walk suspended in the void, on top of the world, at a height that would be fatal if you fell without a safety line? It’s definitely an activity for experts, and certainly not for the faint of heart...!”
