Petzl 'Pirana Descender'

Product Overview

Adjustable friction descender with spur and locking slot for canyoning

Designed for canyoning, the PIRANA is an adjustable friction descender intended for expert users and guides. It has three rope installation options to select the degree of friction before initiating a descent. A friction spur allows the user to increase braking power during descent. The plastic ring keeps the connector positioned properly to facilitate rope installation while the device is connected to the harness and limits the risk of dropping the device. A locking slot and an additional spur facilitate rapid creation of a tie-off.
