The Pirana is a canyoning descender for single or double rope.

It provides three different braking positions to choose from, according to the weight of the user, the rope diameter in use, and the terrain.

It also has two points where the rope can be angled to adjust the descent speed. A locking groove and an additional spur facilitate rapid creation of a tie-off.

A plastic attachment also ensures perfect support for some types of HMS locking karabiner (though be warned not all as many are too wide - we suggest a Petzl Am'd or Petzl Vertigo - see the Petzl Website for more information ).

The Pirana can also be used to belay the leader.

For use on a single rope, 8 - 13 mm in diameter. It can be used on doubled rope but certain braking positions are not usable depending on the rope's diameter.

Hot forged aluminium body.

Weight: c 110g.
