Petzl GriGri +

by Barrabes - 0


The original model hit the market in 1991 and revolutionized sports climbing with its automatic braking system; the model was instantly successful and was sold with no modifications until 2011, when the GriGri 2 was launched – the new model included a few modifications but kept the structure and shape of the first model essentially in place.

Today, we present the GriGri +, which keeps the classic safety features of the first and second model with two extremely interesting updates.
  • One of the new features is an anti-panic system that has been added to the release lever. This new system eliminates the risk of free fall when climbers descend; if a belayer pulls back too hard on the lowering handle (release) the device will lock the rope and block the descent.
  • Another improvement is the ability to switch between two positions: a top-rope belay and a lead climbing belay. The belay features a blocking system to prevent accidental descents.
    The new model also makes it easier to take up slack while belaying a climber on lead.
  • New stainless steel wear plates have also been designed to protect the rope from wear, an issue with the GriGri 2, particularly. These plates minimizes rubbing to the max.
  • The GriGri+ is also optimized for rope sizes ranging from 8.9 to 10.5 mm.
These new upgrades with the GriGri+ provide enhanced safety and ease paired with the same efficiency as Petzl’s previous models.
