Ultralight belay/rappel device with Adaptive Rope Control technology.

The VERSO is a simplified version of the REVERSO≥ offering a lighter and more compact option for climbers looking to further reduce the weight/size of their rack of gear. The asymmetrical V-shaped grooved friction channels adapt the friction for better control using our ARC (Adaptive Rope Control) technology.

Ultra-light design:

  • 31 % lighter than the Reverso≥
  • Hot-forged aluminum
  • Weight: 57 g

Single device for all ropes:

  • Single ropes ≥ 8.9 mm
  • Half ropes ≥ 8 mm
  • Twin ropes ≥ 7.5 mm

Features:

  • ARC technology adapts to the diameter of rope used by increasing or decreasing the braking friction on the rope according to its diameter and conditions
  • Increased friction on thinner ropes
  • Adapted friction for efficiency with larger diameter ropes
  • Asymmetrical grooved sidewalls decrease friction when taking in slack for greater ease of use
  • Super compact design is easy to use and doesn't take up much space on your rack
  • Rope friendly design separates the two strands of rope when belaying with half/twin ropes or while rappelling thus helping to prevents kinks
  • Stiff keeper cable will not get sucked into the device, helps maintain the optimal position during use, and aids in preventing loss during transitions
  • Usage diagram engraved on device for ease of use
  • Use with symmetrical shaped locking carabiners (Am'D or OK) to maximize efficiency no matter which end is closest to the device
