POD’s Superior Drop Knee Bicep Leash is surf gear innovation at its very best! We’ve carefully designed this leash to supports the specific needs of drop knee riders by lengthening the straight edge sections of the cord. This prevents the coil from stretching to the point where it’s pulling on the riders arm. Along with this we’ve traded out the standard plastic buckle for one made of unbreakable marine grade stainless steel. The new Black Stealth Series integrates the cord and connector in an organic design that can stretch up to 6 times its original length without compromising the integrity of the leash. If you’re a drop knee rider, the Superior Drop Knee – POD Connection Bicep Leash is a dream come true!
Thanks to all the DK Riders and in particular Carlos Canle & Guillaume Habasque for the inspiration.
POD CONNECTION = RELIABILITY FOR THE BODYBOARDER TO TAKE ON THE ELEMENTS WITH CONFIDENCE IN BIGGER SURF CONDITIONS.
All Premium Grade Components.
POD Connection: Shane Vassallo at POD Ware has proudly designed three unique advanced organically shaped connectors to suit the essential requirements of both Bodyboarding and Surfing sports.
Bodyboard Leash Connectors: The highest grade urethane combined with the unique POD Connectors enables both to stretch to the utmost specification limits of the raw materials providing maximum durability.
Drop Knee leash is 1.2m total in length - 100cm of coils and 9-10cm straight cord at each end (Not including the POD Connectors). This is a better length cord for DK without over stretching the coils when Drop Knee riding and ensures good coil return when under load.
Stainless Steel Buckle: Plastic buckles break - Shane has introduced world's first marine grade stainless steel buckle to ensure 100% reliability.
*Strength Testing: Ambient temperature will vary stretch results.
Swivels: The marine grade stainless steel swivel shaft encased in a naturally greasy plastic barrel casing guarantees a smooth swivel shaft rotation, eliminating any fused parts from salt erosion.
Webbing Loop: Quick release in moments of need.
*Note: Before Bodyboarding always check for cuts in the cord from previous bodyboarding sessions.
“Since Peter Clarke the former owner of Full Bore pioneered the first swivel connector moulded over a cord in the 80’s, bodyboaders have been continually pushing wave riding performance to extreme levels. It was imperative that I match this with function, design & durability.
It was the structural strength in nature that inspired me to design the POD Connection. The shape and configuration enables the cord to stretch to its maximum raw material specifications; a goal I was very happy to achieve.
I hope my work inspires the next generation in leash design!
The Surfer Deserves It... CHASE IT®”
