The Italian manufacturer of harnesses presented the Skyway carabiner that they will be using in their range. Designed in cooperation with Camp specifically for paragliding use, it is lighter and stronger than the one used formerly in Woody Valley harnesses..
The Skyway introduces features like the slightly tilted upper side that allows risers to slide smoothly into the right position, even narrow ones, or a blocking tooth that prevents the carabiner from turning upside down through the webbing loop.
