Petzl Pirana Descender



  • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent
  • Two braking spurs allow friction to be increased during descent
  • A karabiner with a cross section of around 12 mm (e.g. ATTACHE or WILLIAM) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a "rigid" karabiner / descender unit
  • Stays attached to the harness during rope insertion, to help prevent loss
  • Reduces the risk of leverage on the karabiner gate due to poor positioning
  • The PIRANA helps prevent the formation of a lark’s head hitch around the body and reduces rope twisting, without decreasing braking friction


  • Material: Hot forged aluminum body
  • Weight: 90 g
  • Rope compatibility: For use on a single rope, 8 - 13 mm in diameter. Can be used on doubled rope, but certain braking positions are not usable depending on the rope's diameter

Guarantee: 3 years

Conformance: Non PPE

Available Options:
