FLYING FOY ropeway transportation tool 11/2008

A simple tool for passenger transport, utilising a ropeway system. By inventing a new mechanisms for a transportation device Flying Fox upgrades an essential but perilous means of transport like the Columbian „Los Cables“ on a much more reliable basic. The mechanism enables to break and regulate speed for a safe travel downhill. The uphill transport is manual via a crank-handle, and works on a zip-way with a gradient under 20%. The use of the tool requires an 11-16 mm steel or static ropeway system, and a standard climbing harness.
