Reusable shock absorber that starts operating from 250 kg. The energy of the fall is transformed into heat after sliding the Dyneema webbing through the holes of the aluminium alloy plate, and thus reducing the impact of the fall. In average is reducing a 30% of the impact energy. Very useful in the first anchors of a pitch, where the fall factor may be very high.
It's a must-have safety device either for ice or trad climbing, where sometimes anchors are not completely safe.
Once it has been deployed, it may be folded again for re-use. We suggest to replace the webbing after 5 falls where the webbing has been fully deployed.
The webbing features a tab with 5 holes to keep track of the falls. One hole should be broken after each fall. "
