Petzl Rack Variable Friction Descender with Braking Bars
This rack updates the classic brake bar descender. The design and configuration of the bars makes it easy to set up and insert the rope. Compact and lightweight, the device allows the user to adjust the amount of friction during the descent to adapt to changing conditions (rope weight, terrain, etc.).
