About

the redtail slackline set. 

We love the great outdoors. Walking between trees, climbing on rocks and looking for adventure. Our passion is creating amazing products that motivate people to get out and live their life as an adventure. We have developed a slackline set that fuses our passion for nature and design. And we proudly present you our result: The redtail slackline is a high quality slackline kit for fast, intuitive setup with high elasticity.

the redtail slackline.

Slacklines awaken your natural desire for movement. They transform parks and gardens into balancing courses for all age groups. Everyone can decide what slacklining means to them – extreme sports with high demands on physical and mental fitness, or a leisurely pastime while relaxing with the family or with friends. Our lines have higher elasticity, perfect for beginners, but also for experienced tricklining. In order to avoid injuries, we have developed extremely soft edges. Take your first slackline steps with redtail.

the redtail ratchet.

We have deliberately avoided plastic components in our products. Our ratchet has an ergonomic wooden handle. This is not only a benefit for nature and design – setting up the slackline also feels much more comfortable than with usual plastic-handled ratchets. 

the redtail treesaver. 

A tree needs to be protected at three relevant pressure points. Our tree saving pads, made of 100 percent woolen felt, protect the tree from damage at these crucial points. Two slots hold the line so that it won’t slip. This makes fixing the redtail slackline much easier than others.

the redtail blanket bag. 

The redtail blanket bag is equipped with three pockets in which you can store items including your slackline and roll it to a nice looking bag. So you can leave your backpack at home and enjoy a cosy time on it. Unpack and relax.

Our desire, with redtail, is to create adventure equipment that we could be proud of. Products that are imbued with an eco-friendly approach, functionality, and longevity. Our goal is to inspire and motivate others through our ideas – always with a focus on sustainability and our environment. We are outdoor enthusiasts and always on the search for new adventures. 

Hot on the heels of a trip through Denmark, it was one year ago, in 2013, that we (Sebastian and Jan) decided to found redtail with the support of our friend and media partner Ulysses Argetta from Los Angeles, California. We wanted to create a Slackline, one which would not just be cheap and colourful, but one which works in harmony with nature, in material and usage, taking advantage of and placing value on, natures’ playground, without damaging it. The days in Germany upon our return were filled with research, brainstorming sessions, sketch-ideas, and discussions... thus was the idea of redtail conceived.

In the past year we have focussed intensively on materials, functions and design possibilities, taking existing individual components and inventing new, to find an individual solution with useful features. The redtail slackline set is our first product and we proudly present you our design history.

Risks and challenges

We’re a team with a lot of experience in design processes and project management. There are always challenges, but our promise is that we will meet them goal oriented and with our highest commitment. We have given a conservative estimate of delivery dates. During the following months we are committed to keeping you informed of our process.

Our promise to deliver will be challenged at all times by the known complexities of manufacturing, production scheduling, shipping between continents, and more. Therefore, in case of unexpected issues during the delivery schedule, we will give our maximum effort to minimize the impact on our supporters.
