The Edelrid Giga Jul is a super versatile belay device that offers both a standard tuber device and an assisted braking device in one.
With an intelligent hybrid design, the Edelrid Giga Jul can either be used in guide mode or assisted guide mode, which offers a brake boost for catching falls. The assisted braking function can be activated or disabled by swivelling the device round, which is great when you are climbing mixed pitches. The Giga Jul offers the best of both worlds and is ideal for situation-dependent belaying and abseiling, especially in alpine terrain.
