Skysystems ?

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to contact Skysystems regarding a reline for the past week by e mails and phone calls to no avail.
Does anyone have any actual news as to WTF is going on??


Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, Shouting "...holy shit...what a ride!"

the word on the forums and social media is that they are out of business...
Don't know how truly they are out, but it seems that many people are running after them for either/both gear or/and money.

Good luck.[:/]

You can make them with surgical tubing and some crazy glue?



You don't need glue

And I have one PEP manual that requires tube stows.:o Guess I better see if Roberto and Manley have revised it.



The last Javelin that I assembled for a customer (DOM 10/15) was shipped from factory with a bag of Tube Stoes. I believe Sunpath has acquired the patent/production rights for them. You could try contacting them.

A reline ?

Are we talking about the same sky systems that makes tube stows and helmets.

If so then they were based in Raeford, NC and have declared bankruptcy. Completely run into the ground and mismanaged.



You can get the helmets re-lined with new padding.

***Contact the manufacture. In this case, sky systems would reline and also repaint old helmets.

or take the money and hide [:/]

That is correct.
I just got off the phone with them for other reasons but they mentioned this.

With a vision in my head
My body screams release me
My dreams they must be fed... You're in flight.

Need a feline? My cat sometimes sleeps in my helmet when it's laying aroung :P

Har har.


Not anymore. I seem to have developed a feline allergy....


Now a helmet reline would be rather nice. Alas I think this helmet is done for.
