SKU: N/A Category:


Ultra-light (59 g) multi-purpose belay/rappel device that regulates the amount of braking friction on the rope according to its diameter and condition; Reverso mode
This multi-purpose belay/rappel device is ultra-light (59 g, 25 % lighter than the REVERSO 3) and intuitive to use. V-shaped friction channels with asymmetrical lateral grooves adapt the friction to the type of rope for better control (ARC technology: braking control for twin, half and single dynamic ropes). Reverso mode for belaying one or two seconds with assisted braking.

Selling points

      – Weight: 59 g
  • A single device for all rope types:
      1. – effective braking on half and twin ropes ≥ 7.5 mm
      1. – effective braking on single ropes ≥ 8.9 mm
      1. – can belay the leader, one or two seconding climbers and can be used for rappelling
      1. – independent and simultaneous belaying of one or two seconding climbers in Reverso mode
      – quick changeovers from Reverso mode to belaying the leader when climbing multi-pitch routes
  • V-shaped friction channels:
      1. – increased friction on thin ropes
      1. – friction is adapted for larger diameter ropes
      – increases the locking pressure on the ropes in Reverso Mode
  • Asymmetrically grooved sidewalls:
      1. – increased braking power during a leader or top rope fall or while rappelling
      – rope slides smoothly through device when taking up slack
