Treated steel grinding plate and cam guarantee lifespan.
The redesigned is 30% lighter than the original design as the high-friction mode on ATC-XP provides 3x greater hold and a larger rope-bearing surface. The keylock nose designs prevent the rope from snagging.
The device provides multiple friction modes in order to rappel and relay. The device has weight savings through machined windows and the guide mode works with at max two climbers. Auto-block help release the hole which gets wide enough to add a small carabiner. The cable is durable as it holds its shape and resists getting caught between ropes.
30% lighter than most devices as the high friction mode offers 3 times the hold and stopping power. Machined windows are provided throughout the device in order to save weight. The cable holds its shape and resists getting caught up between ropes.
The device is easy to use which can be used in a wide variety of climbing setups. The product is minimalist where the large surface area help dissipate heat especially while lowering or rappelling. Durable cable holds its shape and resists getting caught between ropes.
At just 57 grams, the Verso is a very light Belay device. It is in fact Petzl's lightest belay. This belay has the advantage of working on all ropes from single (8.9 mm and more diameter), half (8 mm and more diameter) to twin (7.5 mm and more diameter) rope.

It is a great choice to lighten your rack while climbing. Due to the teethed channel there is greater friction and the braking is better even with thinner ropes. Using this belay with minimum force, the fall of climber can be quickly stopped. It works effectively with half, twin and single ropes, from 8 to 11mm. It comes with a 25KN HMS twist locking carabiner that enhances safety with a locking gate.
This German made versatile belay and abseil device is very strong and durable. made from solid stainless steel it works effectively with ropes of 7.8 to 10.5 mm.
