Thread: Lift sling that lifts at 90 degrees

  1. #1

    Lift sling that lifts at 90 degrees

    as you have probably seen, I have a modded lift that we use to get in/out of my bike that mounts in my trailer hitch. anyway the sling kicks my butt forward and knees up, im looking for something that will lift me at more 90(sitting position)... I currently have a sunrise med mesh bath sling, very minimal, I don't need much support..... thx

    To add to scott's suggestions which were outstanding.
    Tree climbing saddles. Designed to sit in and hang from a climbing rope while working. Very comfortable, worn them for many hours of work daily. The Buckingham Cotton Saddle is $140. A Petzl shoulder harness can be added if needed for about 60 bucks. Large D rings to clip into.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    I don't know much about what slings are out there. Q: what do you do w/ it while you're riding?

    Climbing harnesses are pretty simple though.

    Some of the climbing harnesses have high, padded backs also. Like the tree saddles.
