The new version of Petzl’s classic Pirana is an advanced Figure 8 style descenders that utilises horns to provide additional friction settings.
The new model features a locking slot, which is designed to allow a rapid and secure tie-off.
The device can be rigged with one of three initial friction settings — slow, medium, or fast — when attaching to the rope. Once descending, a friction spur allows you to easily increase braking power.
A plastic insert holds the carabiner securely in place, making it easier to get on and off rope, reducing the risk of the descender being dropped, and preventing cross loading.
