Petzl I’D Descender

The Petzl I’D descender’s are being upgraded in 2019. Petzl are improving functionality and adding some innovative features to the I’D S and I’D L. They are also launching the new Petzl I’D EVAC. They will all be available in the UK from April 2019.

There are some clear changes for the two devices:

  • AUTO-LOCK system – the handle automatically returns to the lock position when it’s release (without having to manipulate the handle or tie off)
  • Safety gate on the moving side panel – allows rope installation without removing the device from the harness (already on I’D S, new to the I’D L)
  • Stainless steel wear plate – improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone
  • Two possible descent modes – over the side plate or in the v-shaped friction channel
  • Rope can be taken up without manipulating the handle
  • The button on the handle has been removed
