Qui sommes nous ? About ?

All about balance. Tout est une question d'équilibre.
Cette phrase illustre Slack depuis ses débuts en 2005.
Alors que personne n’avait entendu parler de sangle molle, Damien Mercier décida de pousser le slackline vers les projecteurs en créant la marque Slack et le site www.slack.fr, ainsi que la boutique en ligne de slackline. Vous êtes ici sur notre blog.

PrimitiV Versatile Compact Kit

That's it, I designed and release my new kit for 2007. It is the PrimitiV Versatile Compact Kit (such a name isn'it!).
It is light, affordable and stylish. From my point of view this is the best system for short to middle line (3-10 meters).
With other webbing this primitive tensionning system is not good enough since it allows a small mechanical advantage (3:1). I designed my webbing to fit perfectly with this tensionning system and it works well!
Of course, one cannot rigg long line or overtight small one. Meanwhile this kit is light and compact, one can easily put it everywhere.

Nearly a full week without posting

This week has been very busy. A lot of work and parties. I start to be moody again since I am cooling down...I am not use to feel bored. Currently, I wait the final technical drawing of my double pulleys (the next generation). I will meet my main supplier this WE in Paris.
It is quite funny to meet a professional partner in reality and not only on the phone or by email. I will do my best to not only speack about pulleys and karabiners developments...
We made a huge party on saturday night. In between 50 to 60 persons were there. Our flat was crowded. For the first time, we decided to open three rooms in a row.
Massive space,isn'it?

The following day, we all faced a huge hang over. My mind blurred my ability to think properly. Marcos and I decided to challenge ourselves by a chess game. Afterward, it was not such a clever idea. The game was endless...at least 4 hours.
We finished like this:

I also received my new product a ski cap. Each piece is gonna be unique. It is made by a Lotti from her eco-farm. Every single piece is 100% natural and that's why this ski cap is very ROOTS and get KARMA. I will not make any profit out of it since Karma doesn't mix well with profit.
I love it!

Vesoul: 100% free ride - part 2

This farmer was very proud of his bull balls and brave enought to took them firmly. It's true, man, they are as impressive as you're dangerous...lol!
This one was glad to explain everything he knew about cattling and good meat. We also tested some piece of red meat. It was testy, juicy and incredibly melting in the mouth.

Vesoul: 100% free ride

I just passed my WE with some friends in Vesoul. We went to the Festviande 2006. It's contest in which each cattle farmer show his best bull. Of course, this sounds special for a WE journey and it is special, indeed!
To get a fully understanding of it one might want to know where Vesoul is located. Vesoul is the major city of a french "disaster county" the "Haute Saône". Its economy is bad since all the biggest company moved abroad years ago.
From my point of view most of the work comes from farming since this city is not well connected to bigger cities (few trains, bad road, no airport). The sun barely shines through massive grey clouds...To sum up: the whole atmosphear is not appealling.
Nevertheless we med a lot of nice farmers. They are enthousiastics and deeply involved when we asked questions on cattling. They love theirs animals and the good food!
