Petzl CHICANE Auxiliary Brake
The additional braking device CHICANE makes it possible to use the mechanical descender ZIGZAG or ZIGZAG PLUS also on the single rope (SRT). The two replaceable friction elements create an additional braking effect during the descent. The side panel can be opened for an easy put in of the rope and is secured with a 3-way release. When assembled, the CHICANE forms a stable unit with the ZIGZAG. This ensures a smooth passage of the rope during the ascent at all times.The assembly is only possible with a carabiner with H-shaped cross-section of the current Petzl series Am'D or OK. This carabiner is not included.
