The Be Up is Climbing Technology’s new belay device for 2015. It’s innovative design can be used in a multitude of ways and with an unprecedented range of rope diameters.
The effective, modular braking of the rope works through the specially designed “V” notches to guarantee better braking control when arresting a fall, abseiling or bringing up seconds. While belaying the leader on a multipitch route using two ropes the Be Up lets you pay out one rope while the other is locked-off.
Be Up also allows the unlocking of the rope and lowering of one free-hanging second, without difficulty, with twin or half Ø ≥ 7.3 mm ropes. The Be Up is the only such device that lets you do this simply by inserting a normal HMS carabiner in the unlocking hole.
The Be Up‘s special shape and the attachment ring built into the body allow you to bring up one or two seconds using twin or half ropes with Ø ≥ 7.3 mm. You can also continue to bring-up one second while the other is hanging with their rope locked-off in the Be Up.
The new Axis is a large HMS karabiner with wide opening made of hot-forged light alloy. Its shape guarantees correct axial loading relative to rope and other devices. The Axis’ large size and ample width also allow use of a Munter hitch knot, the securing of more than one rope, slings or devices and rope manoeuvres in general. The Axis is made in CT’s Italian factory and is available with or without the belay specific ACL system.
RRP £14.00 – £19.00
