The descenders are designed to regulate the braking and control the descent along a fixed rope. They also allow you to position yourself at any point on the rope to work. Some Petzl descenders also serve as an insurer.
These lightweight, secure and rappel Petzl gloves combine the strength of a work glove with the precision and finger feel of a finer glove.
