Following the trend is easy, but improving in order to help tree climbers to get more efficient is what Teufelberger commits with its new treeMOTION Essential.
Since 2007 Teufelberger has been constantly improving its treeMOTION harnesses, many years of listening to tree climbers, partners, and ambassadors, always with the sole objective of making the ideal harness that suits all climbing styles and climber anatomies. They are therefore proud to manufacture in Europe the fourth generation of the original treeMOTIONs.
The treeMOTION series has been a success story since the beginning. Nevertheless, there was always feedback from climbers whether it could not be even better. So, Teufelberger set themselves the goal of making the treeMOTION even better and thus even more user-friendly.
One thing was particularly important: Every person is different and so the harness should also be individually adjustable.
Therefore, the harness is now available in 3 different sizes:
Safety is the top priority at Teufelberger and the treeMOTION essential has been certified according to the following standards:
- EN813:2008, EN358:2018
- ANSI Z133-2017 for arboricultural operations,
- ASTM F887-20, CSA Z259.1-05, AS/NZS 1891.1:2020
The durability of the treeMOTION with 10 years lifetime from production, made the treeMOTION already a long and reliable partner. To ensure the sustainability of the belt even more, the treeMOTION Essential was developed so that you can replace up to 10 parts:
- Lying openable ring
- leg Loops
- Hip Leg Connection
- Elastic of leg loops
- Elastic cords for gear loops
- Chainsaw ring (back side)
- Back padding
- Leg paddings
The main difference between treeMOTION Essential and Pro are:
- Buckles – The treeMOTION Essential is equipped with sliding adjustable buckles for the beginning climber and the treeMOTION Pro with the Cobra quick release buckles for those with more experience
- Back and leg padding – The treeMOTION Essential is equipped with standard padding and the treeMOTION Pro with comfort padding. Both paddings are interchangeable.
- Gear brackets – The treeMOTION Essential is equipped with 2×2 gear brackets and the treeMOTION Pro with 2×3 gear brackets plus 2×1 gear brackets downside the harness
- Red elastic band to hold in place – The treeMOTION Essential is delivered without the red elastic and the treeMOTION Pro with the red elastic on waist and leg loop
The thinner material and lighter adjustable buckles make this harness extremely light.
