Petzl D05 Pirana Descender

The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. Designed for descent techniques.

  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent
  • Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
  • A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (e.g. ATTACHE) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a «rigid» carabiner / descender unit
  • Stays securely attached to the harness during rope insertion, to help prevent loss
  • Reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate due to poor positioning
  • When used correctly, the PIRANA prevents the formation of a lark's head hitch around the body and reduces kinks in the rope, without decreasing braking friction


Specifications

  • Weight: 90 g
  • For use with single ropes between 8 and 13 mm in diameter
  • 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 having a 12 mm cross section (ATTACHE or WILLIAM)
  • 3-year guarantee
