The Petzl VERSO is a simplified version of the REVERSO³ offering a lighter and more compact option for climbers looking to further reduce the weight/size of their rack of gear. The asymmetrical V-shaped grooved friction channels adapt the friction for better control using our ARC (Adaptive Rope Control) technology.
Ultralight design is hot-forged and is 31% lighter than the Reverso
ARC technology adapts to the diameter of rope used by increasing or decreasing the braking friction on the rope according to its diameter and conditions
Increased friction on thinner ropes
Adapted friction for efficiency with larger diameter ropes
Asymmetrical grooved sidewalls decrease friction when taking in slack for greater ease of use
Super compact design is easy to use and doesn't take up much space on your rack
Rope friendly design separates the two strands of rope when belaying with half/twin ropes or while rappelling thus helping to prevents kinks
Stiff keeper cable will not get sucked into the device, helps maintain the optimal position during use, and aids in preventing loss during transitions
Usage diagram engraved on device for ease of use
Use with symmetrical shaped locking carabiners (Am'D or OK) to maximize efficiency no matter which end is closest to the device.
