Item #PTZ-0265

The PIRANA descender offers multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness. Designed for use with canyoning 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
  • The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction


  • Weight : 90 g
  • Rope compatibility : 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 rope's diameter.
  • Material(s) : hot forged aluminum body (6082 ALU)
  • For use with a locking carabiner having a 12 mm cross-section (ATTACHE or WILLIAM)
