The Wedge is the only mudflap altimeter mount that is customized to either side of nearly any rig with any mudflap shape for any altimeter.
Please note: When ordering, the straight or slanted designation has to do with the angle of the bottom of the mudflap on your container. It does not indicate the altimeter angle. The slanted configuration is for most Vector and Wings containers (and older Talons). Most other containers have a straight mudflap configuration. Note your rig manufacturer so we can confirm the configuration ordered will fit. Also note the side of your rig you will be mounting your Wedge on, the width of your chest strap (1" or 2") and the side of your chest strap adapter (metal buckle where you thread your chest strap through). All of this info enables us to send the correct configuration of the Wedge so it can be installed properly on your container.
The Wedge includes a stretch pocket on the back, which can be filled with a variable spacer foam, in order to correct any altimeter misalignment due to different rig configurations and body proportions. Also included is a 1" or 2” Uni-Loop that is attached with an elastic strap. Now the chest strap can be routed through this Uni-Loop, keeping the mount close to the body. Freeflyers appreciate this feature as the mount is not pushed up by the wind while standing up. The elastic strap may be adjusted in length with a variable Velcro attachment, to handle different rig configurations.
The optional DigiPouch is for digital altimeters like the GFX, Neptune and VISO. The DigiPouch includes a clear plastic screen, Spandex® and Velcro® attachment straps, as well as a PVC stiffener plate for the Wedge and angle adjustment foam wedge. If you select a digital altimeter in the options below, the DigiPouch will be included.
There is also an optional Altitrack Wedge Mount attachment. If you select the Altitrack as your altimeter for mounting, the kit for connecting your Altitrack will be included.
Chest-strap altimeter mounts tend to move to the left or to the right, as well as up and down, thus making it impossible to check the altitude at a quick glance. Hand-mounted altimeters also have their problems. Freeflyers, using their arms/hands for moving around the sky, docking and stability, have to bring an arm forward, in order to check the altitude. And looking at the altimeter while tracking away is virtually impossible. In the past, the Golden Knights also faced these problems. Mike Daughtry, at that time a member of Knights, developed this unique altimeter mount in order to avoid all the above described problems.
The Wedge is manufactured exclusively for ChutingStar. Final modifications for your individual configuration are completed at ChutingStar before shipping.
The Wedge is available in black, royal blue, navy blue and red and is in stock at ChutingStar. Please allow up to 2 business days for shipment so final modifications can be completed for your specific rig setup.
