With the ATC-XP Belay Device from Black Diamond, a climber can control how much friction they want while belaying or rapping, which in turn means greater control with multiple rope diameters. An extended central section keeps karabiners and ropes properly oriented and reduces kinking. The thick rope-bearing surfaces of the ATC-XP mean that ropes wear less and last longer. Compatible with a very wide range of rope diameters, from 7.7mm to 11mm, thanks to the high and low friction modes.
Since 1957, Black Diamond have been making some of the finest climbing equipment, ski gear and mountain accessories in the world.
