Wild Country REVO

1 review   |  

The Wild Country REVO is the first Bi-Directional assisted breaking belay device that's both simple to use and safe for either beginner or experienced climbers. 

Cleverly designed and offering something totally new, the Wild Country REVOeliminates one of the most common causes of belay related accidents, with the Bi-Directional loading function. It doesn't matter which way you put the rope in, you cant actually load the device incorrectly as the locking function works regardless of the rope orientation. Irrespective of the situation, an uncontrolled descent will cause the inertia reel to activate, grip the rope and arrest the fall. The innovative panic-proof locking mechanism cant be over ridden and as such removes the need for a handle to unlock the system when lowering the climber.

The device is intuitive to use and feels the same as a traditional belay plate, only the Revo wheel makes the device feel super smooth as it allows the rope to paid out and taken in quickly. It accommodates a wide range of rope diameters and as it requires no change to standard belaying technique, it is suitable for beginners to learn how to belay correctly, whilst offering the safety backup of the assisted wheel locking mechanism. The Revo is suited to both the novice and expert climber alike, and the clever combination of features makes it the safest belay device on the market.

REVO reply to doubters

Having seen reviews for the revo on youtube etc and not been impressed with some of the attitude towards it I feel the need to put in something positive. I am an old climber who started climbing when you belayed over your shoulder, and started again a while ago as a means of getting fit after a bad injury. I was bought a REVO for christmas and have given it a go at the local climbing wall .... it is the best thing since sliced bread and I cannot fault its claims My belay partner who I outweigh by 3 stone, helped me test it in the following ways. 1 - Straight forward climb up and then lower down, it is very light to the touch with low friction letting out and taking in rope but plenty of grab when needed, catching a fall or lowering down in a controlled manner 2 - We did a static test , just hanging on the rope and the belayer just letting go of the rope - it locked out immediately , but would reset with just a downward pull of the rope 3 - Then the big one, we did a leap of faith, I got my partner to let go of the rope all together and i jumped from the wall !!! it caught my weight and brought me to a stop inside a meter and a half , it might have been less if my belay partner had not come off the ground All in all it does exactly what it should. AND does it well
