Description

The Pirana is a canyoning descender for single or double ropes. It offers three different braking positions, according to the weight of the user, the rope diameter and the terrain. It also offers 2 points where the rope can be angled to adjust the descent speed. A plastic attachment also ensures perfect support for any type of HMS locking carabiner.

Features:

  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent
  • Two extra friction spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
  • A carabiner with a cross section of around 12 mm (e.g. Am'D) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a "rigid" carabiner / descender unit
  • Stays 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:

  • Material(s): hot forged aluminum body
  • Weight: 90 g
  • Rope compatibility: For use on a single rope, 8 - 13 mm in diameter Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking positions may not be usable depending on the rope's diameter
