The Petzl Verso is a compact, lightweight belay/rappel device, for use with one or two rope strands and for rappelling. This version is lighter, more ergonomic and offers more 'rope bite' than its predecessor.
The brand's lightest belay device, the Verso accommodates most rope diameters: single 8.9 to 11 mm, half 7.1 to 8 mm and twin 6.9 to 7.5 mm. Intuitive and easy to use, it can be used to belay a climber and to rappel. The specific design of the rope channels facilitates smooth rope glide and reduces wear.
Suitable for a broad range of rope diameters:
Compatible with 8.9 to 11 mm dynamic single ropes
Compatible with 7.5 to 8 mm dynamic half ropes
Compatible with 6.9 to 7.5 mm dynamic twin ropes
Simple to use
Feeding slack and catching falls are accomplished using standard belay techniques, always keeping a hand on the brake side of the rope
