The adjustable angle makes them extremely versatile and suitable for carrying a wide range of different craft from kayaks, SUP boards, surf boards, wind surfers and so much more. A surface lift is a type of cable transport for snow sports in which skiers and snowboarders remain on the ground as they are pulled uphill. While they were once prevalent, they have been overtaken in popularity by higher-capacity and higher-comfort aerial lifts, such as chairlifts and gondola lifts. Today, surface lifts are most often found on beginner slopes, small ski areas, [1] and peripheral slopes. They are also often used to access glacier ski slopes because their supports can be anchored in glacier ice due to the lower forces and realigned due to glacier movement. Neither J Bars nor V Bars - Uprights, with the boat(s) on edge. They are far easier to load, no less secure and support the boat adequately. Cradles may be preferable if you want to carry a boat supported on the hull, but I've never had any damage carrying boats sitting on the roof bars on their side - and that includes lightweight WWR race boats.

Some include a canopy or tunnel. Passengers slide onto the belt at the base of the hill and stand with skis or snowboard facing forward. The moving belt pulls the passengers uphill. At the top, the belt pushes the passengers onto the snow and they slide away. They are easier to use than T-bar lifts and Poma lifts. [15] Magic carpets are limited to shallow grades due to their dependence on friction between the carpet and the bottom of the ski or board. Their slow speed, limited distance, and capacity confines them to beginner and novice areas. Espacenet – AT145894B Schleppseilanlage für Skiläufer und Fußgänger". European Patent Office .

With J's (and indeed uprights) you'll get more boats on. I also find it easier to load off my shoulder onto J cradles on most cars. And it's easier to use the straps. But, for rear loading, the V is the answer, perhaps with a roller system. Tie down is more awkward though, and even more so on a tall MPV or van. Some form of ladder becomes necessary, which adds to the faff factor. Platter lifts are often referred to as button lifts, and may occasionally feature rigid poles instead of recoiling cables.

The first surface lift was built in 1908 by German Robert Winterhalder in Schollach/ Eisenbach, Hochschwarzwald, Germany, and started operations February 14, 1908.

( August 2022) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message) The first T-bar lift in the United States was installed in 1940 at the Pico Mountain ski area. [14] It was considered a great improvement over the rope tow. An earlier T-bar was installed at Rib Mountain (now Granite Peak Ski Area), Wisconsin, in 1937. The hull of a sea kayak is a bit too wide for V Bars which makes the boat sit a lot higher off the roof.In the simplest case, a rope tow is where passengers grab hold of a rope and are pulled along while standing on their skis or snowboards and are pulled up a hill. The grade of this style of tow is limited by passenger grip strength and the fact that sheaves (pulleys that support the rope above the ground) cannot be used. Jeffries, Jane (Jun 5, 2015). "Canterbury: Fields of dreams". New Zealand Herald . Retrieved 4 April 2017. Available from accredited GALINTEL® distributors, the J-Bar™ is a convenient alternative to custom-made beams such as PFC and flat plate, which have to be fabricated and galvanized. Loop parallel to boat, but the uprights are too short so the tops end up on the flat section of the bottom of my Taran. They work for all my other boats. A development of the simple rope tow is the handle tow (or pony lift), where plastic or metal handles are permanently attached to the rope. These handles are easier to grip than a rope, making the ski lift easier to ride.

As with all quality GALINTEL® products, the J-Bar™ Shelf Beam is provided with a full product warranty and safe load tables. Typical Uses Technical Information for lifts".

[16] Our J bars are made from robust tube steel and are factory painted for a long life. The fixtures are strong and durable plus the thumb screw nuts means you don’t need special tools to put the bars on or take them off when not needed.I found I was chipping gel coat from the bottom of my Taran against the top of my uprightsSounds like badly designed uprights, Jim! There are some with the loop on top running parallel to the roof bars - which means you can put straps round them from both sides without jamming one under the other - but if the loop is welded on the outside of the upright it can touch the boat unless the upright is well padded out. The solution is to have the loop parallel to the boats, and for two boats run one strap round both, going through the loop and under the roof bar. I prefer to do that even with one boat - if the upright fails, the boat is still strapped to the bar. (Another reason not to like J bars - the boat is only strapped to the J bar).
