Creatures of Leisure Founder, John Malloy, first introduced the use of Urethane to the market in 1976 to tackle the powerful waves of Western Australia. Since those early days, Urethane has been regarded as the world’s best and most reliable leash cord material. 43 years later and we’re still sticking to what we know works. Using the world’s highest grade raw material, we continue to fine tune our leash formula. Our 2019 leashes are the perfect blend of stretch, strength and durability.
Stainless Steel Bearing Swivel
The Bearing Swivel is yet another Creatures world first! Eliminating leash tangles for the life of the leash, the stainless steel, self-lubricating swivel never jams or corrodes.
Surefire Leash Release
Quick, Easy Release, any Time!
All Creatures leashes have a Surefire Leash Release tag, a permanently upright injection moulded urethane tag which is easy to pull – especially in an emergency. The ergonomic design has permeation holes which allow the flow of water and reduces weight making it a far superior release tag over a standard webbing loop.
Always on Lock!
Using specially designed, engineered neo-mesh material, the Non-Slip Cuff prevents the cuff from rotating on the ankle. The durable, spongy material also creates a firm and comfortable fit and has a lighter and thinner cuff construction.
2 YEARS WARRANTY
We are so confident in the durability and the quality of the 2019 range of leashes we offer a world first – 2-Year Warranty on faulty workmanship and defective materials.
Where a leash cord and cuff mould join is a typical weak point for all common leashes. The Creatures of Leisure DNA Flex Mould is the world’s first cord/mould connection that stretches together with the cord when under pressure which resists breakage.
Locked and Secure!
The Leash Lock is a 70mm panel of customised, high strength, marine grade injection moulded hook and weave Velcro. The Leash Lock is lighter than general Velcro and 50% stronger.
A leash is only as strong as the sum of it’s parts. TPU cord is unquestionably the world’s most reliable and failsafe leash cord material ever used with unrivalled durability. We have been refining and fine-tuning our leash formula for over 43 years making Creatures Leashes the most reliable and trusted leashes on the planet.
DNA Flex Mould
The Patented DNA Flex Mould is the world’s first mould / cord connection that stretches together with the cord when under pressure absorbing wave impact and drastically reducing the chance of breakage.
Where the horn meet’s the cuff is a typical point of discomfort in any regular leash, until now! Creatures of Leisure have developed the ergonomic, sculptured and scalloped Elliptical Horn which has been designed using the latest 3D scanning technology, moulding the cuff with pre-bent, ultra-lightweight and low density TPU. The Elliptical Horn fits a broad range of ankles with unrivalled comfort and precision.
Surefire Leash Release
The Surefire Leash Release tag is a permanently upright injection moulded urethane tag which is easy to pull – especially in an emergency. The ergonomic design has permeation holes which allow the flow of water and reduces weight making it a far superior release tag over a standard webbing loop.
WT1 / Welded Mesh
The WT1 Welded Mesh is a never seen before cuff material that is developed by and exclusive to Creatures of Leisure. The TPU coating is extremely lightweight and hard wearing, providing water resistance while in use which reduces weight and maintains material integrity.
Using specially designed, engineered neo-mesh material, the Non-Slip Cuff prevents the cuff from rotating on the ankle. The durable, spongy material is now even lighter with a reduced profile creating an even firmer fit and a lighter cuff. This Non-Slip Cuff combined with the Elliptical Horn creates the ultimate fixed position cuff that will not rotate on your ankle whilst maintaining a comfortable user experience.
Moulded Hook provides superior peel and shear strength while drastically reducing weight. The highly flexible and thin profile makes this the most effective cuff fastening material on the market.
