This multi-purpose belay/rappel device from Petzl is ultra-light and intuitive to use. V-shaped friction channels with asymmetrical lateral grooves adapt the friction to the type of rope for better control (ARC technology: braking control for twin, half and single dynamic ropes). Reverso mode for belaying one or two seconds with assisted braking.


  • Ultra-light design: minimalist construction; hot-forged aluminum
  • A single device for all rope types: effective braking on half and twin ropes greater than or equal to 7.5 mm; effective braking on single ropes greater than or equal to 8.9 mm; can belay the leader, one or two seconding climbers, and can be used for rappelling; independent and simultaneous belaying of one or two seconding climbers in Reverso mode; quick changeovers from Reverso mode to belaying the leader when climbing multi-pitch routes
  • Asymmetrically grooved sidewalls: increased braking power during a leader or top rope fall or while rappelling; rope slides smoothly through device when taking up slack
  • V-shaped friction channels: increased friction on thin ropes; friction is adapted for larger diameter ropes
  • Carabiner hole allows the loaded device in Reverso mode to be easily and gradually released with only a carabiner
  • Rope friendly, allows for smooth belaying and rope handling: will not kink the ropes regardless of the mode used; separates the two strands of rope when belaying and rappelling
  • Intuitive use: Reverso mode aluminum attachment point is easy to identify; keeper cable keeps the device from moving up the rope when belaying and reduces chances of losing the device
  • Use with symmetrical locking carabiners (Am'D or WILLIAM) to maximize efficiency


Weight:2.08 oz / 59 g
