Although this is an extreme activity, CableBikes are particularly safe. You wear a harness independently hooked to the cable above. Our guides receive training in safety, rescue and first aid. Our equipment (harnesses, straps, pulleys, etc.) is certified in Europe and the USA. The design and construction of the cables conform to international safety standards and have been tested with loads that give a wide safety margin.
