The Viaduct of Recoumène
The viaduct is located in the Haute-Loire department, in the south of Saint Etienne and 90 minutes from Lyon or Clermont-Ferrand. It is 65 metres high and 270 metres long with 8 arches and is surrounded by an abundance of lush greenery. Situated 20 km from Puy en Velay, in the commune of Monastier sur Gazeille, the spot welcomes over 50.000 visitors a year.
The bungee gear will be attached to your feet and is made up of a harness that has 2 shin guards that are attached to the elastic and a security rope. The carabiners are made from steel and the ropes are 11mm thick. Each piece of equipment is regularly checked and there is a technical document that can be accessed upon request.
The elastic is made up of about 960 threads of natural multi-fibre latex, calibre 20/22 that is checked electronically. Each elastic is studied and used for specific jumps, depending on the weight of the jumper and the height of the jump. Each elastic can execute up to 150 jumps.
