Skyline Competitive vaulting surcingle will give your
vaulters a distinct advantage through its refined grip
By seeking the input of several international
competitors & coaches who have used nearly all of the available surcingle designs in the international competition ring,
this list of most important points shaped the concept &
design in our new surcingle and accessories.
Parallel Grip Angle
Because most surcingles sit with a slight or significant tip
backwards when placed on the horse, the parallel portion of
most other grips end up tipped backwards as well. At the top
of a handstand this actually forces the vaulters wrists
backwards since the wrist joint is not able to bend that
direction. Try this: Hold a pen in your hand and make a
fist, now bend your wrist until the pen is parallel: how much
further can you go now? As a result of this most vaulters at
the top of the handstand have to let their wrists fall
sideways on the handle and this leads to wrist problems. The
Skyline Competitive surcingle fixes this problem by putting
a deliberate forward tip on the parallel grips so that they
end up tipped slightly forward or at least remain flat once
on the horse.
Spacing of Bottom Supports
surcingles that are currently manufactured use two supports
at the bottom side of each grip allow for easier balancing
from above. However, in many mount and ground jump positions
the extra width gets in the way. The Skyline Competitive has
both of these supports, but places them closer together so
that a mount such as the current Technical Test mount is: 1)
much more comfortable, and 2) easier to have your body
Not too big, not too small
The variety of
different grips out there, and many other attempts people
have made to make their own, has led to many designs that
where “just a little off”. The grips on the Skyline
Competitive have been carefully sized with much input and
testing and all those involved in the process would like to
assure you that these are “just right.”
Crank Girth and side reins are included.
