Rappelling in wet conditions, such as canyoning and caving, demand variable friction options for safe descents. The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness.

PRODUCT FEATURES:

  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent

  • Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be varied during descent

  • A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (e.g. ATTACHE) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a "rigid" carabiner / descender unit

  • Stays securely 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

  • Weight: 90 g

  • Rope compatibility: For use with single ropes
    between 8 and 13 mm in diameter

  • Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking
    positions may not be usable depending on the
    rope's diameter

  • Material: Hot forged aluminum body

  • For use with a locking carabiner having a 12 mm
    cross-section
