Magnetic Braking Makes It Better

All Head Rush devices utilize magnetic braking technology to enhance adventure activities. This technology allowed us to create one-of-a-kind devices for a smooth lower on auto belay, a soft catch with our free fall devices, and a self-regulating brake for zip lines.


Benefits of Magnetic Braking

Eddy current magnetic braking avoids friction pads or any contacting parts required for braking, so there are less components that might wear out or fail. Magnetic braking also adjusts automatically to the participant’s weight to provide a smooth, comfortable ride. These are just a few of the reasons why magnetic braking makes Head Rush devices distinct and better.
