The Pirana Descender by Petzl is a figure-eight descender for descending on single or double rope.

FEATURES of the Petzl Pirana Descender

  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent
  • Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
  • A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (e.g. ATTACHE) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a "rigid" carabiner / descender unit
  • Stays securely attached to the harness during rope insertion, to help prevent loss
  • Reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate due to poor positioning
  • The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark's head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction

SPECIFICATIONS of the Petzl Pirana Descender

  • Weight: 90 g
  • Rope Compatibility: For use with single ropes between 8 and 13 mm in diameter Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking positions may not be usable depending on the rope's diameter
  • Hot forged aluminum body
  • For use with a locking carabiner having a 12 mm cross-section (ATTACHE or WILLIAM)
  • Case Quantity: 28
