Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Petzl Basic Ascender Description

  • Brand : Petzl
  • Season :
  • Code : PET BASIC
  • Packaged Weight : 0.16KG
  • As described - a "basic" ascender without a handle. Can be used on ropes from 8mm - 11mm. This is a lighter and more compact version than the original.

    A compact ascender that offers excellent grip for rope ascents. The lower attachment hole is large enough to hold the karabiners for the lanyard and the footloop. Can be used for rope ascent on a fixed line or as progress capture in a hauling system. Toothed cam with self-cleaning slot optimizes performance under any conditions (e.g. frozen or dirty ropes). Stainless steel cam has better resistance to corrosion. Upper connection hole for guiding the rope.

    Breaking strength 4 - 6kN depending on rope diameter.

    85g (the previous version was 136g).

    NB Unlike the old Basic, Petzl say that this new version should not be used for self-belaying as, "the new design of the upper attachment hole makes it unsuitable for use in self-belaying: there is a risk of interference between the karabiner and the safety catch."
