How Restube works
A very flexible and strong connection to your gear is possible due to the crossed belts at the backside of the bag. You can adjust it up to 7cm wide belt systems. At kite or windsurfing Restube is mostly mounted right at the belts of the harness hook. Professionals adapt Restube sometimes directly at their harness.
While most Restubes are closed with Velcro, the split pin closure can withstand the toughest external influences, such as big waves or the extreme forces of parachuting. The pull on the trigger first pulls the split pin out of the guide and then releases the buoy directly.
The extra strong buoy material is made of nylon with a TPU coating. It is extremely robust and complies with the standard for life jackets (DIN EN ISO 12402-7). The bag fabric is made of high-quality nylon and permanently protects the internal buoy from UV light and mechanical influences.
EMMANUEL NORMANN, PROFESSIONAL KITE SURFER
"As a professional kite athlete, I want to stay focused when I'm far out. I can count on Restube, it´s my “peace of mind” in tough conditions."
I use this product for a few weeks for kitesurfing. Once assembled on the harness it´s always with me and will provide extra floatation when it comes to any critical situation. I am especially convinced by the design and quality of the product. It is especially helpful to be able to help someone else with the buoy in case of emergency.
Keep in mind, it's just a support, not a life-saving device like a real vest!
Maybe the word 'extreme' leads to false understanding.
For me, it's just one part of security, but it can't grant you full security.
Habe das Teil bis jetzt noch nicht benutzt. Es ist aber sehr handlich und darum werde ich es immer dabei haben, ob ich jetzt mit dem SUP unterwegs bin oder ganz einfach nur im Wasser schwimme. Wie schnell kommt man, insbesondere in etwas kälterem Wasser im offenen Meer, physisch an seine Grenzen und dagegen möchte ich jederzeit gewappnet sein.
Ein absolut sinnvolles, praktisches und wertvolles Produkt beim Surfen
Not tried in water yet. But very comfy to wear and everything on it feels like best quality!
