Descender with three braking positions, designed for use with canyoning descent techniques.

Three different braking positions to choose from before beginning descent depending on the user's weight, the rope's diameter and the terrain.

Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be increased during descent.

A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm (like an 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, greatly reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate (poor positioning).

Designed to be used with the 'Rapid' technique, which prevents the formation of a lark's head knot 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
