A multifunctional belay/rappel device for 1 or 2 climbers, the Petzl Reverso belay device is a lightweight, durable option for cragging, multipitch climbing and mountaineering.


  • Device can be used for classic belaying, rappelling or for independent, simultaneous belaying of 1 or 2 second climbers in Reverso mode, commonly used on multipitch climbs
  • While belaying in Reverso mode, a carabiner placed in the release hole allows the belayer to give slack when the device is under tension
  • Rounded rope slot design allows rope to glide smoothly, limiting wear and extending the life of the device
  • Rope installation diagrams for belaying and Reverso mode are engraved on the device for ease of use
  • V-shaped friction grooves enable controlled braking
  • Compatible with dynamic single ropes 8.5-10.5 mm (possibly up to 11 mm, depending on the rope's suppleness), dynamic half ropes 7.1-9.2 mm and dynamic twin ropes 6.9-9.2 mm
  • EN 15151-2 and UIAA certified
