The PIRANA is designed for rappelling using canyoning techniques. The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction.

(!) Must be used with a carabiner with 12mm cross section/ diameter. The PETZL AM'D and PETZL WILLIAM carabiners are recommended.

Features

  • Three different braking positions to select from (before beginning a descent)
  • Two extra friction spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
  • Use with PETZL AM'D or WILLIAM carabiner
  • 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

Specifications

  • Material(s): hot forged aluminum body
  • Weight: 3.17oz (90g)
  • 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


Note: This item is intended for experienced figure eight rappel device users.
