Since its initial launch in 2007, the treeMOTION has convinced arborists of its quality, featuring
- more comfort due to a great range of movement,
- individual gear loops,
- great work positioning convenience and
- improved distribution of loads, as well as
- the use of premium quality materials.
It has meanwhile become one of the most popular climbing harnesses in the world of tree care. In spite of that, it has been Teufelbergers aim to further improve treeMOTION, by incorporating user feedback in the development.
The PPE-approved rear tie-in attachment option according to EN 358 serves mainly as a retaining feature if the user is working bent over forward in the tree. In addition, the treeMOTION was tested for a total load of 120 kg, instead of only 100 kg. This allows climbers to safely carry more gear if needed. Provided with new UV resistant seams, the treeMOTION also withstands the intense solar radiation prevailing in Australia.
For the safety of climbers, Teufelberger arranged a stitched seam at both ends of the rope bridge in order to ensure that the rope ends are long enough beyond the knot. Furthermore, the use of the DMM Axis Swivel S on the rope bridge instead of the ring was tested.
At the request of many, the Comfort Back Padding has become a standard part 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 treeMOTION impresses with the high strength textile/plastic mixture used, top-notch hardware and exchangeable wearing parts. Due to these exchangeable wearing parts the full service life of the harness can be optimally utilised.
The following parts can be exchanged:
- Rope bridge
- Hip-leg connection
- Comfort Back Padding
- Left and right leg loops
- Leg padding
- Gear loops
The treeMOTION can be enhanced by a suitable shoulder strap.
