The Rock Exotica MiniEight side ears provide a range of friction settings that can easily be adjusted while abseiling. The ability to easily add friction makes it possible to use with a wide range of rope diametres. The horns also make it simple to securely tie off mid-abseil.

The design is extremely compact and lightweight, making it an ideal backup device or perfect for remote adventures where weight is critical.

The attachment hole has a rubber gasket that grips the carabiner firmly, reducing the risk of the descender being dropped while getting on and off rope and also protecting against cross loading.

The use of aviation-grade 7075 aluminum ensures the MiniEight has a longer lifespan than many competitors.

Key advantages:

  • extremely compact and lightweight descender
  • a range of friction settings that can be adjusted while abseiling
