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
-When used correctly, the PIRANA prevents the formation of a lark's head hitch around the body and reduces kinks in the rope, without decreasing braking friction
