Jul² belay device
Jul² is a manual assisting descender with high stopping power. The belay device has no moving parts and the innovative design enhances braking performance significantly when the rope clamped between the belay device and the carabiner. This means that you need to use less force to hold the rope than with a normal tube-lock belay device. A big advantage if you are belaying a person who weighs considerably more than yourself. However, it is important to note that in Jul² belay device does not have automatic locking mechanism! Therefore, you must always keep a hand on the passive part of the rope.
The simple design makes Jul² easy to operate, even for inexperienced climbers. Another bonus of Jul² is the price, which, unlike the mechanical descenders is significantly lower.
The belay device can be used for single rope size 8.9 mm & 11 mm and weighs 87 grams.
