Petzl Pirana

Incl. VAT:

£24.00

The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. Designed for use with canyoning descent techniques.

Features

  • 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 aluminium 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
