The new 2018 Teufelberger treeMOTION EVO harness
Since its introduction, the Teufelberger treeMOTION represents high quality materials, giving arborists extra comfort because of a wider range of movement, single gear loops, work positioning convenience and improved load distribution.
The Teufelberger treeMOTION has become one of the most popular climbing harnesses in the world of tree care. Constant research and development based on actual use and customer feedback has resulted in unique improvements to the line.
The PPE-approved rear tie-in attachment option according to EN 358 serves mainly as a retaining feature if the arborist is working bent over forward in the tree. It has been tested for a total load of 120 kilos, instead of only 100. This permits climbers to carry more gear safely. New UV resistant seams helps treeMOTION withstand intense heat conditions throughout Australia.
For extra safety, stitched seams at both ends of the rope bridge are designed to ensure that the rope ends are long enough beyond knots. The use of the popular DMM Axis Swivel S on the rope bridge was tested in lieu of a standard ring.
The Comfort Back Padding is now an integrated standard component of the treeMOTION. This padding has wide flexible grooves that support the dissipation of heat and allow the padding to rest snugly against the wearer’s body without creases. The central part of the padding is specifically designed for the lumbar region and provides additional support.
The Teufelberger treeMOTION is fabricated from high strength textile/plastic compounds, top-notch hardware and interchangeable wearing parts. Because of these, the full service life of the harness can be optimised.
These components may be interchanged:
- Rope bridge
- Hip-leg connection
- Comfort Back Padding
- Left and right leg loops
- Leg padding
- Gear loops
Teufelberger treeMOTION EVO can be enhanced by a suitable shoulder strap.
