Braking Distance Calculator

Knowing the braking distance of your zipSTOP brake setup will affect the design of your landing platform, the installation of your emergency arrest device, and the level of rider comfort during braking.

Use the Braking Distance Calculator tool to estimate braking distances, but remember that these are intended for guidance only. Always conduct unmanned testing on your primary brake and EAD to determine actual braking distance and performance on your zip lines.
