Nikosi is a fully-loaded double sliding D arborist saddle. This is the Low-Rise model, with belt at the hip. If you prefer a belt that rides at the waist, see our Nikosi Classic
Nikosi in Native American Yurok language means all around---our Nikosi saddle has TWO floating bridges for ALL AROUND motion!
NEW GENERATION, NEW FEATURES: NIKOSI LOW-RISE
Casey Jones, New Tribe's product design artist, has redefined Nikosi as a more compact saddle that retains all of the benefits of the original. The double floating bridge is still there. The large leg pads that provide famous New Tribe comfort are still there. All the tool-carrying capacity is still there. What has changed?
-- The double bridges are linked through one O ring, instead of two rings and a webbing connector.
-- The belt rides at your hip, not your waist.
-- The leg straps fit snug, the leg pads a little higher.
The result is a compact Nikosi saddle that feels like a natural part of your body.
Tree work is tough work. You need safety, utility, comfort and mobility. Nikosi is built to be your all-around best ride.
Both the belt and the leg straps move with you as you twist, turn and reach. Two small D-rings are provided for attaching optional suspenders to help distribute weight.Rear rescue loop is built to life-safety standards.
For carrying gear: one aluminum ring, two snap hooks, two gear loops, two carabiner loops and two attachment slots for gear bags or additional carabiners.
-- Webbing bridge on the belt is replaceable using shackles.
-- Adjustable riser straps
-- Adjustable leg straps
-- Quick-release buckles on leg straps
For a more versatile fit, the leg straps are adjustable. They can be set to fit Small through Large. You will notice that your balance hanging in the saddle will change as you change the leg strap length. Adjustability allows you to set it where it provides the best balance and comfort.
