Slackline - All about balance
Everything is about balance.
This sentence is the motto of Slack since 2005. From the early beginnings to the mainstream practice, slacklining is constantly seeking for balance.
Back in the days, whereas nobody knew anything about slack lining and tight rope walkers only performed on circus, Damien Mercier decided to put the light on slacklining, creating the brand Slack and the website www.slack.fr, as an online shop for slacklining.
From scratch, inspired by those new rope walkers met in the US, Damien led the business adventure in France. Charles Giraud was here too, and is still the pillar of this little company.
The Slack family grows everyday. Projects after projects, new talents were revealed. Meeting with them was crucial to enhance our slackline gear.
With Jon Ritson, Damien opened the first french highline in 2007. Michi Aschaber, Julien Millot and Fabrice Wittner were here too for the highline world record in 2009. In 2011, Sébastien Montaz-Rosset released "I Believe I Can Fly" in which the Skyliners search for the most beautiful lines between Chamonix and Norway. Two years later : "Petit Bus Rouge" kept the spirit on.
10 years after introducing slacklining in France and creating the company, Slack is made of 5 people that share every kind of work from development, production, distribution, online sales, parcelling, design and visuals.
Along this journey, we always supported the ones who wanted to enhance slacklining. Slackliner and passionate of the sport, we develop new products to make the sport better.
