Ridgeline Smuk is a line that connects the ends of a hammock. It simplifies the process of hanging and allows to adjust the degree of its tension in order to achieve the optimal level of comfort.
The essence of comfortable rest and night’s rest in a hammock is adequately loose hanging, which makes Brazilian style sleeping - diagonally - possible (the subject has been described in detail in the “How to hang a hammock” tutorial). Hanging of loose hammock requires adequate adjustment of the suspension every time. Due to a ridgeline, the adjustment is almost completely unnecessary - appropriate degree of loose is set only once.
The usage of a ridgeline allows to retain the hammock in the same shape upon each subsequent hanging - it will be equally comfortable no matter the degree of tension or angle of the suspension lines.
The set includes five elements:
ridgeline - adjustable in a range from 240 to 300 cm
- two mounting loops - to connect the ridgeline with the hammock’s suspension
- two snap hooks with screw locks - for joining of elements
Smuk ridgeline and mounting loops were made from impregnated Dyneema line of inconsiderable weight (5 g/m) and very high durability (750 daN) using a way of interweaving the lines used, among others, in sailing and arboriculture. A bead threaded on the ridgeline protects from over-shortening and damaging of the ridgeline.
Assembly and adjustment of the Smuk ridgeline lasts only 3 minutes and is possible to conduct whilst lying in the hammock, which features sewn-in tunnels at its ends - it is compatible with all models of hammocks by Lesovik. In order to simplify the task, an illustrated manual is included in the set.
During camping the ridgeline performs very well as a string for drying of laundry or to fasten equipment that we want to keep on hand or as a flashlight sling.
Smuk ridgeline together with Smuk suspension makes up for a complete Smuk Suspension System - the most comfortable and the fastest way for seamless hammock hanging. Photographs in the gallery with clearly visible Duch ideally present a hanged hammock using a full Smuk system.
ATTENTION! Suspension and hammock visible in the photographs are not included in the set!
