What Petzl say about the Grigri 2:

 Behind every great send, there's a great belayer. The GRIGRI 2 helps the belayer work in unison with the climber.

The GRIGRI 2 belay device with assisted braking is designed to facilitate belay maneuvers. The GRIGRI 2 works equally well for lead climbing and top roping. It may be used on all single dynamic 8.9 to 11 mm ropes on the market (ideal at 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm). Both compact and ultra-light, the GRIGRI 2 will accompany you on climbs around the world for many years. The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent.

  • Belay technique identical to classic belay systems: both hands on the rope. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope.
  • Assisted braking capability: during fall arrest, the belayer holds the free end of the rope, the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action until the rope stops sliding.
  • The GRIGRI 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. One hand holds the rope and the other uses the handle to unlock the cam. The patented handle design allows a very gradual release of the rope. In combination with the strong braking action of the cam, it gives a great feeling of control when lowering a partner or rappelling.
  • The GRIGRI 2 is compact and ultra-light at 185 g (25 % smaller and 20 % lighter than the GRIGRI)
  • The construction includes a stainless steel friction plate and cam to ensure a long life for the product
  • For 8.9 to 11 mm single ropes (ideal at 9.4 to 10.3 mm)
  • Diagrams for rope installation engraved on belay device (interior and exterior)

The climber, at any level, needs to be able to concentrate on his/her moves and rhythm. The belayer's actions should not interfere with progression: when he/she accelerates, pulls up slack to clip, etc.

The design of the GRIGRI 2 makes belaying easier. The belay technique is identical to classic belay technique, and the assisted braking capability facilitates arresting falls.

The new GRIGRI2 builds on the success of the first GRIGRI, which helped revolutionize sport climbing over the last 20 years. Besides being smaller and lighter, this latest version has been designed to work with the thinner ropes that many climbers are using today. It also features a new design that allows for smoother lowering.

 

Major strengths and new features

  • Compatible with single ropes between 8.9 and 11 mm
    The new GRIGRI2 can be used with almost any single dynamic rope. Whether you are working a route with a thicker rope or trying to send your hard test piece using a skinny cord, the GRIGRI 2 will perform optimally.

 

  •  Progressive descent control system
    The new progressive descent control system in the GRIGRI 2 is specially designed to offer smooth, even lowering action - there's a larger 'sweet spot' when lowering a climber or rappelling.

 
 

  • 20% lighter and 25% more compact
    Weighing in at only 185 grams and noticeably more compact than the older version, you won't have to think twice about carrying the GRIGRI 2 on your next climbing adventure.
