Key to the Pivot is the patented guide mode attachment that gives the device its name. As well as lending the device an appealing aesthetic, the pivot gives the user greater leverage on the belay plate when lowering a climber in guide mode. This simple sounding feature gives the Pivot a massive advantage over standard guide plates because the force needed to manipulate the device is vastly reduced.
Other clever design features make the Pivot incredibly simple to use. Tapered sidewalls give easy rope loading and mean the Pivot works with a huge variety of rope diameters, as well as minimising chance of ropes twisting and locking in the event of a second fall. V grooves in the rope channels give increased friction and holding power when using skinny ropes. The device is reversible for easier use of large diameter ropes and smoother abseiling. The carabiner hole used to release the device has been sized specifically to grip a standard biner at the optimum point for maximum leverage.
Lightweight, intuitive and innovative, the Pivot is the perfect belay device for alpine, winter and multi-pitch trad climbing.
