The Pirana is a very versatile descender for single or double ropes. It offers three different braking positions to choose from, according to the weight of the user, the rope diameter in use and the terrain. It also offers two points where the rope can be angled to adjust the descent speed. A plastic attachment also ensures perfect support for any type of HMS locking carabiner. The Pirana can also be used to belay the leader.
Description Three braking positions
Two extra friction spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
Used with a carabiner with a cross-section of 12 mm (WILLIAM), it creates a rigid carabiner/descender unit that helps maintain noise discipline
The descender is used with rapid technique and is drop resistant.
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
Helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction
