The aptly named Mad Rock Aviator Belay Device wants to help take you to new heights. Built with aircraft-quality aluminum, the Aviator features auto-locking capability for when you're sketched out on a ledge while belaying your second. An ergonomic fin helps you control friction and braking speed during your belay or rappel, and the unique removable spring keeps it from locking when feeding the rope.
Features of the Mad Rock Aviator Belay Device Forged and machined aircraft aluminum body for light weight and optimal heat dissipation Unique removable spring keeps the device from locking when you feed the rope Aviator also works for belaying seconds off an anchor and can be easily rigged for releasing a load when used off an anchor as well CE and UIAA certified
"Mad Rock Belay Devices Aviator Belay Device 870559021678. The Mad Rock Aviator used the standard tube-style belay device as a starting point and improved it. The Aviator's unique removable spring keeps the device from locking when you feed the rope -- an inherent design weakness with regular tube-styled belay devices. The forged and machined aircraft aluminum body makes the Aviator light and it provides for optimal heat dissipation. The Aviator also works for belaying seconds off an anchor and can be easily rigged for releasing a load when used off an anchor as well. The Aviator's unique ergonomic fin can be used to modulate speed while lowering or descending."
