The Edelrid Bud is a classic figure of eight style descender.

While we prefer to use more advanced descenders that allow a range of friction settings, this tried-and-true design is still popular with many canyoners.

Suitable for single ropes between 7.8mm and 12mm in diametre, the Bud is an affordable, light-weight option that can provide a handy back-up device, a spare descender for taking friends out, or a rigging tool in releasable anchor systems.

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

Key advantages:

  • affordable
  • easy to use
  • hard wearing
