On Sale. Trango Pyramid Belay Device The Pyramid Belay Device by Trango could be the best all around belay/rappel device on the planet. The result of intensive R and D work, it is light, compact, durable and can smoothly handle just about any rope combination. The machined cooling fins on the Pyramid work both to keep it cool and to make it less droppable, and the pivoting center pin lets you flip it over to customize the feed of your ropes without effecting its stopping power. Rappelling is always controlled and jerk-free and the flat rope path virtually eliminates kinks. The elongated slot for the center pin makes it easy to rig the Pyramid with stiff or fat ropes and the burly retaining cable will last as long as you own it.

Because Trango's Pyramid belay device is wider on one end and narrower on the other, allowing belayers to choose between two amounts of friction. The fins dissipate heat after those long rappels so it's less likely to damage the rope.

The Trango Pyramid is a classic belay device with some nifty tricks up its sleeve. The device can be loaded with either end "up" to fine tune the friction. The smooth flat walls minimize rope kinking, and give a nice smooth descent. The machined fins on the outside of the device look totally boss, and improve cooling on long descents. Weight: 2.4oz (68g) Colors: assorted, sorry no choice
