The Edelrid Bud is a classic figure of eight style descender that can be used on ropes from 7.8 to 12mm in diametre.

This tried-and-true design delivers an affordable, light-weight option that can be used as a handy back-up device or spare descender for taking friends out.

Ideal for use as a figure 8 block, a form of releasable rigging which allows an abseiler to be lowered if they become stuck on the rope.

(Note: heavier canyoners or those using thinner ropes may find they need additional friction. Ensure you understand how to utilise tools such as the Z-abseil (aka: Z-rig / Z-rappel) to add friction while descending.)
