The DMM Pivot is a versatile, functional and innovative, belay device that caters for modern belaying techniques with modern ropes to provide optimum performance when belaying from the harness, or when belaying direct from an anchor. The Pivot provides smooth paying out, a secure and confident catch, and controlled lowering.
When in guide/direct mode, the Pivot shifts the lever arrangement to allow controlled and easily initiated lowering. Its is extremely smooth so even with a weighty second, the belayer can lower one, both, or either second with total control using the specially shaped biner cavity. When you finish your route and are ready to go down, the Pivot will be a trustworthy abseil partner for the return to the base. Perfect for alpine, winter, and multi-pitch trad. All of these features are wrapped up in a package weighing only 72g.
