  • $ 38.95


FEATURES of the Petzl Pirana Descender 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

  • Three different braking positions to choose from before beginning descent depending on the user's weight, the rope's diameter & the terrain
  • Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be increased during descent
  • A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (like an ATTACHE) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a rigid carabiner / descender unit
  • Designed to be used w/the "Rapid" technique, which prevents the formation of a lark's head knot around the body & reduces kinks in the rope, w/o decreasing braking friction
  • For use with ropes from 8 to 13 mm. Designed for single rope
