The Petzl Ascension Ascender gotten a update that provides greater comfort; efficiency, ease of use. The ergonomically shaped handle is over molded with rubber for greater friction and the broader surface provides greater comfort while pulling on the ascender. The grip is wider at the bottom providing better comfort for your hand during use. The index finger indent has also been increased offering greater efficiency when pulling. The trigger to open/close the cam is now recessed inside the frame to avoid accidentally opening while in use. The cam has been redesigned to minimize friction when sliding along the rope while the angled teeth provide secure grip in the worst conditions (wet, icy, or on muddy ropes). The geometry of the single piece aluminum frame ensures optimal handle orientation when the device is loaded and will maintain solid, comfortable performance even after thousands of meters of jugging.
Designed for use with ropes between 8 and 13mm in diameter
