The design and configuration of the RACK bars make it easy to set up and insert the rope. Compact and lightweight, the device allows the user to adjust the amount of friction during the descent, to adapt to changing conditions.

Designed for caving, RACK is a descender that is easy to manipulate. It is used with 9 to 13 mm diameter low stretch kernmantel ropes on one rope strand and can be used on two strands (8 to 11 mm low stretch kernmantel ropes) to facilitate long descents of over 80 meters. The lifespan of the device can be optimized by replacing the brake bars.
