The Petzl 5 Bar Rack is an update of the classic brake bar descender. The design and configuration of the bars makes setting up and inserting the rope easy. The device allows the user to adjust the number of bars engaged on the rope to obtain the necessary the amount of friction while descending to adapt to changing conditions such as rope weight, terrain, etc. The rack is designed to use on long descents on single or double ropes.
The Petzl Pirana Club is an adjustable friction descender for canyoning that's designed for group use and beginners to the sport. It has three rope installation options and allows you to adapt the degree of friction before initiating a descent. It works well when used both right-handed and left-handed. The plastic ring makes rope installation easier, keeping the device connected to the harness and limiting the risk of dropping the device.
As the name implies, the Petzl Simple is an easy-to-use caving descender. It can be used with 8.5 to 11 mm diameter low stretch kern-mantle ropes. Reduced bulk and low weight simplify progression in narrow passages. The pulleys can be rotated or replaced to prolong the duration of use over time.
The Petzl Stop is a popular choice of descender, thanks to it being easy to use and having the backup of the automatic brake (remember to lock it off if you've stopped though!). It can also be used instead of a chest jammer in an emergency on short pitches. The downside is that it can get a bit warm on long descents of a dry rope (think Alum pot North West) so take a squeezy bottle of water with you!
