The Beal Birdie is an assisted braking belay device with the cam and friction parts in stainless steel to increase durability. This device works much the same as a GriGri, assisting braking should the climber fall, and utilising a similar kind of handle to lower the climber. The axis ensures the rope doesn't twist when going in or coming out of the device.
All metal construction
Does not twist the rope
Compact and ergonomic for a great handling
Compatible with single rope diameters from 8.5mm to 10.5 mm
