Take a look at what people are saying about BrakeHawk:

“Just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the BrakeHawk.  It has simplified things alot for our customers and has eliminated, almost totally, the need for us to have to stop customers who do not stop themselves.  I am glad you came up with the idea, it has made our work a lot easier.  Thank you.” – Shawn Nye, owner, Eagle Falls Ranch, Eminence, Missouri


“I just want to thank you for the Brake Hawk. It has made our Canopy Tour a hit. When we first started our zip lines we were using gloves for braking, they work, but have several issues. They are costly and uncomfortable on the rider’s hand, which sometimes contributes to the rider not stopping properly. The BrakeHawk has taken those issues away, our customers love it and find it easy to use.  Thanks again for a great product.” – Art Browning, Cedar Mountain Lodge, Scurry, Texas


“We love the new BrakeHawk by Darby Adventure Systems…our customers will never brake with gloves again” – Todd Fox, owner, Blue Ridge Canopy Adventure, Blue Ridge, Georgia

“BrakeHawk brake systems has been a tremendous improvement here at Deep Run Ziplines in Dothan Alabama! Deeprun has the longest and fastest twin ziplines in the southeast. Knowing our customers can stop on a dime with the BrakeHawk system not only gives us peace of mind but improves the overall safety of our operations. Previously to your system we were stopping the old fashion way – grabbing the cable with gloves to stop. Our customers were very uncomfortable braking that way! The gloves got very hot and some came into the platform too fast because they couldn’t grip tight enough to stop. It was very stressful not only for our customers but also for our staff. In my humble opinion (retired USAF aircraft machinist) the overall design, construction and functionality of your brake is superb. I especially like the long lasting, easy to replace rubber inserts. After using your system for many months now I honestly can’t imagine zip lining without it. Your brake system has given a lot of our inexperienced customers the confidence they need to take that last “BIG”step off the platform knowing they can stop. BrakeHawk systems is a vital part of Deeprun ziplines and we say thanks!”
– Chad Chancey, owner, Deep Run Zipline, Dothan, Alabama

“Randy, you’re a genius! Thanks for making our industry safer!” – Tony Wohlgemuth, owner, Kersey Valley Zip Line, High Point, North Carolina
