This zipSTOP is for rider arrival speeds between 0-36 kph (0-22 mph)

Watch the zipSTOP Braking System video and see the benefits it offers:

Here's what's in the box:

  • zipSTOP Zip Line Braking System
  • Brake Trolley
  • Fixed Mounting Bracket
Please note that you can upgrade your fixed mounting bracket to a Pivot Mount

zipSTOP benefits:

  • Eddy current braking technology adjusts automatically to ensure a smooth rider deceleration.
  • Allows for a wide variety of rider weights and speeds.
  • Automatically resets after each rider, minimizing human error.
  • Helps mitigate risk by removing human error from the rider or guides.

  • Able to withstand outdoor environments and work consistently in any conditions.

zipSTOP Zip Wire Brake specification:

  • Rated Working Capacity: 15 to 150 kgs
  • Device Weight: 23.5 kgs
  • Warranty: 2 years

Rated Working Velocity:

  • 6 to 36 k/ph (4 to 22 mph) utilizing a direct 1:1 load
  • 10 to 60 k/ph (6 to 37 mph) utilizing a 2:1 reduction line*
  • 60+ k/ph (37+ mph), utilizing 3:1 and greater reduction*
*Higher rated working velocities require that the zipSTOP device be utilized in conjunction with a reduction line assembly. The specifications noted are valid only when installed as part of that system.

There are many benefits to using zipSTOP as the primary brake for your zip wire braking system:

Magnetic Braking Technology:
zipSTOP utilizes the patented eddy current magnetic braking technology to create a comfortable braking experience. Magnetic eddy current braking is extremely reliable and low maintenance due to no contacting parts in the braking system.

The magnetic braking technology automatically adjusts the resistance based on the weight of the rider to create the most comfortable zip line braking experience. The zipSTOP zip wire brake uses centrifugal force and adjusts automatically to lighter or heavier riders.

Increase Throughput:
Provides consistent braking and automatically resets after each ride, greatly increasing zip wire throughput. Someone will still need to visually check for proper reset of the zip wire brake.

Low Maintenance:
Magnetic eddy current braking is a low maintenance technology that is extremely reliable. The zipSTOP is built to withstand the elements and has a low cost of ownership.

Weight Capacity:
As part of a complete zip wire braking system, the zipSTOP zip wire brake gives you flexibility in zip wire design and operations because it allows a wide range of rider weights and rider arrival speeds.
