Description

Season : SS12

Code : 5005060

Weight : 0KG

The Petzl Ascension is at the leading edge of ergonimic handled ascenders and has been modified to provide greater comfort for the user. The redesigned ergonomically shaped grip is wrapped in rubber for greater friction and the wider surface area provides a heightened level of comfort when in use.

The index finger indent has also been increased offering greater efficiency when pulling on the ascender. The trigger to open/close the cam is now recessed inside the frame to avoid accidentally opening the cam while in use. The cam has been redesigned to minimize friction when sliding the ascender along the rope while the angled teeth provide secure grip in the worst conditions (wet, icy, or on muddy ropes). The geometry of the single piece aluminum frame ensures optimal handle orientation when the device is loaded and will maintain solid, comfortable performance even after thousands of meters of jugging.

FEATURES

  • Molded grip provides even greater comfort with a more ergonomically shaped handle. This new shape keeps your hand from sliding to the bottom of the frame each time you pull on the ASCENSION. The bi-material handle includes a rubber over molded grip increasing the comfort and your grip in wet or icy conditions.
  • Chrome-plated steel cam with angled teeth and self-cleaning slot securely grips the rope, even in muddy or icy conditions. The cam has been refined to increase the efficiency in which the ascender glides on the rope. The wear area has been moved lower on the cams surface to increase its durability. The cam engages without losing a millimeter each time it is weighted and glides smoothly up a rope with a minimal of effort which will be truly appreciated after the first 300 meters of jugging.
  • The trigger is now recessed into the frame guarding it when ascending lower angled sections while maintaining the ability to open/close the cam with only one hand
  • Mono-frame construction eliminates weaknesses and keeps the ascender lightweight and durable for years of use
  • Multiple attachment points allow for different uses (e.g. self-belaying, haul systems, etc)
  • Anodized frames are color coded for easy identification (black -left / gray -right)
  • Safety catch prevents the cam from opening too far thus keeping the rope captured for added safety
  • 1 cm secondary hole at the bottom will accommodate a screw link for attaching aiders, slings, etc.

    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
