Belay device with assisted braking, compatible with a broad range of single rope diameters, for both gym and crag: - feeding slack and catching falls are done using standard belay techniques; always keep a hand on the brake-side of the rope - the assisted braking function is activated when a climber falls, the device pivots, the rope tightens and the cam pinches and blocks the rope. Holding the brake side of the rope helps engage the cam, therefore it is important to always hold the brake side of the rope - compatible with single dynamic ropes 8.5 to 11 mm, optimized for 8.9 to 10.5 mm - rope installation diagram engraved on both the interior and exterior of the device - great durability, for intensive use, thanks to the stainless steel wear plate
Exceptional comfort during descents: - the ergonomic handle allows you to easily unblock the rope and lower someone - easily controlled, progressive rope feed provides a smooth and comfortable descent
Particularly suitable for learners and for instructors: - anti-panic handle: if the user pulls too hard on the handle, the anti-panic function engages and stops the descent - the selector knob enables the choice of either top-rope or lead belay mode. The top-rope belay mode facilitates taking in slack and makes for a more comfortable belay. - it is possible to lock the belay mode
