QUICKJump available via ACR

QUICKJump from Head Rush

We are delighted to announce that we have become an authorised distributor for Head Rush products in the UK and a stockist of the QUICKJump range of devices and accessories.

QUICKJump is a revolutionary product which is essentially an autobelay device that has been adapted to allow an initial rapid descent, giving the rider a true ‘free-fall’ experience. Accessories such as the Rip Cord can extend the free fall experience further to create a real adrenaline rush, whilst still maintaining the confidence of the tried and trusted magnetic braking system.

QUICKJump are simple to install; can accommodate a high throughput and are easy to maintain and can be used as a stand alone activity or as part of an overall adventure experience.

Head Rush Distribution Announcement

We are excited to announce that a distribution deal with Head Rush Technologies in the US has been agreed, to supply their products to the UK market.

Who are HRT?

These are the guys behind the brilliant magnetic (eddy current) braking system utilised in their TRUBLUE Autobelays that all around the world have been successfully replacing the old Redpoint autobelay system with no known incidents, safety notices or recalls. They have applied innovative technology to bring new adventure recreation equipment to the climbing, zip line, adventure and amusement industry, to make adventure activities safer while offering the ability to increase throughput. You can view the Head Rush catalogue here.

Why have ACR got involved?

Autobelays are not used extensively in the outdoor adventure industry and although a couple of years later HRT launched their zipSTOP product, it wasn’t until 2014 when they launched their QUICKjump product that we thought there would be a demand in the markets that we service. Since then we have liaised closely with a few organisations that immediately installed them to gather feedback on this new product. Overwhelmingly it has been positive!

However purchasing product (particularly high value and heavy product) from the USA is not easy so we made the decision to get involved and become a UK stockist.
