The VERSO by Petzl is a simplified version of the REVERSO offering a lighter and more compact option for climbers looking to further reduce the weight/size of their rack of gear. The asymmetrical V-shaped grooved friction channels adapt the friction for better control using our ARC (Adaptive Rope Control) technology.

  • Weight: 57 g
  • Single device for all ropes
  • Single ropes ≥ 8.9 mm
  • Half ropes ≥ 8 mm
  • Twin ropes ≥ 7.5 mm
  • ARC technology adapts to the diameter of the rope used by increasing or decreasing the braking friction on the rope according to its diameter and condition
  • Increased friction on thinner ropes
  • Adapted friction for efficiency with larger diameter ropes
  • Asymmetrical grooved sidewalls decrease friction when taking in slack for greater ease of use
  • Super compact design is easy to use and doesn't take up much space on your rack
  • Rope friendly design separates the two strands of rope when belaying with half/twin ropes or while rappelling, thus helping to prevents kinks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super lightweight belay device I saw this on sale & decided to buy a new belay device as my other one was heavier & old. Didn’t realize what a difference having a lighter ATC had. Every little bit of weight you shave off helps when you’re wearing all of your gear on you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product One of the best ATC devices you can buy, light weight, solid and overall a great buy. The grooved side and the smooth side both work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, sturdy construction I like that this has the extra friction of "teeth" on the belay device without being gigantic. The small size means less rotation and/or jarring motion if I happen to catch somebody when the rope is accidentally on the side of the device rather than in the groove. So, it's the best of both worlds--extra friction when using the teeth and still consistent and easy to use in the event that the rope pops out of the grooves while catching.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite style of ATC at the cheapest price! I was looking for an extra belay device - already have a black diamond one which I love - and this was the best quality and low priced product I could find. I personally like this style of ATC the best - not really a fan of the expensive grigri's with all the bells and whistles or the simpler looking belay devices which have less friction. I like the lime color, it's not as bad as I thought it would be, and can't wait to use it during the upcoming climbing trip! Great beginning belay device or nice as back-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what it is I have been using this ATC for over a year now without ever having any issues. It offers more control over the rope than the black diamond ATC which lacks groves and even handles the old thickened top-ropes (11mm+ at times) my climbing gym uses without issue. It has begun to show slight wear but that is expected with a friction device. I expect to get many more years out of this product and will recommend it to friends. Petzl is a great company, in my experience you can't go wrong with their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helpful I bought this to give me a little extra breaking power and control. I work at a climbing gym, and with my small size (about 110lbs) I found myself being lifted often when climbers would either fall or ask to be let down. It didn't really phase me, because when you're as small as me you learn to handle it, but it would make some of the more inexperienced climbers a little uneasy. So I decided to invest in the Petzl Verso belay device and I was very happy with my purchase. It is so much nicer to use that my old tube style belay device, as well as surprisingly lighter. Sometimes I forget its even clipped onto the back of my harness! It has allowed me to stay on the ground on many occasions and thus instilled more trust from my climbers. It was definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light, little, looks good and simply works What is there to say? It is everything you need in an ATC plus the design is light, little and looks good. Works as it should which is just perfect, after all you are trusting this to save your or your partners life so... It works. ,,
