Description

A canyoneering descender with three braking positions, designed for use with canyoning descent techniques. There are three different braking positions to choose from before beginning a descent. This depends on the user's weight, the rope's diameter and the terrain. Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be increased during a descent. A Petzl carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (like an Attache, M35SL ) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a rigid carabiner/descender unit that stays securely attached to the harness during rope connection. It is designed to be used with the "Rapid" technique, which prevents the formation of a girth hitch around the body of the Pirana and reduces kinks in the rope, without decreasing braking friction.
 
Technical specifications:
  • For use on ropes from 8 to 13 mm
  • Designed for single rope
  • Can be used on double ropes, but certain braking positions may not be usable depending on the ropes' diameter
  • For use with a locking carabiner with a 12 mm cross section (Attache or William) 90 g
