The Petzl Reverso is an ultra-light, multi-purpose belay/abseil device. The Reverso is lighter than it's previous model, the Reverso 4.
As well as having high and low friction modes due to V-shaped grooves where the rope runs and asymmetric sidewalls, the Reverso 4 can also be attached directly to the anchor/belay and used in a assisted-locking Reverso mode, with assisted braking if the seconding climber falls. The Reverso is a great choice for mountain routes where direct belays are common place, and for bringing up two seconds.
The Reverso also has a special carabiner hole at the front which enables the belayer to release the device when loaded in Reverso mode (When weighted by a second) & allows the loaded device to be easily and gradually released by gently pulling on a carabiner placed in the hole.
