Our new FLUX system (designed AND manufactured in Devon) heralds an evolution in the design of SUP Quick release waist leash belts. AT LUUM we pride ourselves on small innovations that make big differences to the stand up paddleboarding community and nothing demonstrates this more than the launch of the FLUX system.
We are already very supportive of the championing of QR Waist Leash belts in the SUP community however the past focus on the flowing water conditions of rivers gives less coverage to how coastal exploration leads us into coves, caves, over sand bars, across estuaries mouths, through harbours and more, all of which can concentrate the force of tidal flow. With the added impact of waves and wakes from faster-moving boat traffic you can easily find yourself in more confined and hazardous environments where you may need to get away from your board quickly.
Our double quick-release buckle design delivers significant benefits and is flexible to all paddlers which is a guiding principle at LUUM;
- SIZING - the two part design means that the product can be entirely tailored to you without a destructive alteration to the main section. The main blue section is 56cm long buckle-to-buckle and the additional yellow length of webbing is 1.5 metres long meaning its smallest usable circumference is 26" and largest is 72". Â By cutting, sealing and keeping the separate piece of belt, you can be assured of a perfect fit anytime you use Flux system - great if different family members go paddling at different times or your SUP club or centre uses the system.
- The rear loop for attaching your ankle leash will be centred on your back irrespective of your waist measurements (assuming you tailored it and feed equal amounts of webbing through each buckle!)
- in a situation where the belt needs to be released quickly there are two buckles so you have a secondary release point in the unlikely situation that your intended buckle does not release.
