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.
• 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 
• When used correctly, the PIRANA prevents the formation of a lark's head hitch around the body and reduces kinks in the rope, without decreasing braking friction
Weight: 
  • 90 g For use with single ropes between 8 and 13 mm in diameter Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking positions may not be usable depending on the ropes' diameter For use with a locking carabiner having a 12 mm cross section (ATTACHE or WILLIAM) 3-year guarantee
