VERSO is Petzl's lightest belay device. It accommodates most rope diameters: single ropes 8.5 to 11 mm, half ropes 7.1 to 9.2 mm and twin ropes 6.9 to 9.2 mm. It is intuitive and easy to use in the gym or at the crag; well suited for learning how to belay. The specific design of the rope slots allows the rope to glide smoothly and reduces wear.


Petzl Verso

    • Ultra-light design:
      - hot-forged aluminum
      - weight: 57 g
    • Single device for all ropes:
      - 8.9 mm or greater diameter single rope
      - 8 mm or greater diameter half rope
      - 7.5 mm or greater diameter twin rope
    • ARC technology adapts to the diameter of the rope used by increasing or decreasing the braking friction on the rope according to its diameter and condition.
    • Better braking on thinner ropes
    • Adapted braking for efficiency with larger diameter ropes
    • Asymmetrical side grooves decrease friction when taking in slack for greater ease of use
    • Ultra-compact design is easy to use and doesn't take up much space on your rack
    • Rope friendly design. Separates the two strands of rope when belaying or rappelling with half/twin ropes. This helps prevent the ropes from twisting or knotting.
    • Keeper cable will not get pulled into the device, and keeps it in the optimal position while also helping to prevent dropping the device
    • Usage diagram engraved on device for ease of use
    • Use with symmetrical shaped locking carabiners (Am’D or WILLIAM) to maximize efficiency no matter which end is closest to the device
    • Weight: 57 g
    • Rope compatibility: for single rope (8.9 mm or greater diameter); half rope (8 mm or greater diameter) and twin rope (7.5 mm or greater diameter)
    • Material(s): hot forged aluminum body
