Petzl Pirana

NZD $54.00

The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. Designed for use with canyoning descent techniques.

SKU: D8PA1 Categories: , Tags: , , ,
  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent.
  • Two extra friction spurs allow friction to be varied during descent.
  • A carabiner with a cross section of around 12mm provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a “rigid” carabiner / descender unit.
  • 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.
  • The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction.
