Brand new for 2011 Edelrid have announced a shiny new belay device dubbed the Kilo Jul. The spiritual successor to the award-winning Jul belay device, the Kilo Jul builds on this success, offering a plethora of interesting features.
Designed to support the world-class range of Edelrid ropes the Kilo Jul is a solid, multi-featured aluminium belay device that supports belaying and rapelling on all rope diameters from 7.8 to 10.5mm. The asymmetric design provides two braking speeds, which can be applied depending on the size and skill of the person belaying.
The Kilo Jul also features a small eyelet that allows the unit to be released with a karabiner when bringing up a second. The device is also suitable for bringing up two seconds simultaneously when climbing in a team of three.
