The name of this remarkable belay device gives a clue to how it works. An inventive climber on a rest day was watching the Grand Prix on TV and noticed the effect of a chicane on the speed of cars. His engineers mind realised that the standard belay plates currently operate in 2D, however rope control could be revolutionised by channeling the rope into a 3D chicane.
The concept was made a reality in the DMM factory using our extensive knowledge of hot forging complex shapes.
The unique geometries of the Chicane give rock solid holding power across an impressive range of rope diameters (7.5mm – 11mm).
So whether you’re taking in, paying out, tentatively abseiling, or making a big catch you’ll have total rope control.
