Detailed description

Description

  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent
  • Two extra friction spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
  • A carabiner with a cross section of around 12 mm (e.g. Am’D) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a “rigid” carabiner / descender unit
  • Stays attached to the harness during rope insertion, to help prevent loss
  • Reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate due to poor positioning
  • The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction

Specifications

  • Material(s): hot forged aluminum body
  • Weight: 90 g
  • Rope compatibility: For use on a single rope, 8 – 13 mm in diameter Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking positions may not be usable depending on the rope’s diameter
