Onyx is the black beauty of professional tree saddles. New Tribe’s decades of experience have culminated in this gem, the best ever single bridge arborist saddle.
Onyx is made to move with ease anywhere your rope can take you. It is structure, not bulky padding, that delivers the superior comfort that New Tribe saddles are famous for. Onyx is compact yet clever, fitted with rings, loops and slots for the tools of the trade.
And it's CONVERTIBLE from a rope bridge to a webbing bridge. For the utmost versatility, you can have both bridge types for this saddle by ordering an optional Webbing Bridge Conversion Kit sold separately.
If you are already familiar with the Onyx, you'll notice some changes to the design for 2017. Now, the leg straps connect individually to the belt at rear, with butt straps and adjuster buckles, similar to other New Tribe saddles. This allows us to remove the rear seat strap to simplify the design. Also, we removed the rear webbing loop and replaced it with a welded D ring for attaching optional suspenders.
Available in two adjustable sizes:
Size 1 (waist 26" to 37")
Size 2 (waist 35" to 46")
