ZÆD: SOFT & SAFE BELAY WITH WEIGHT DIFFERENCE
ZÆD is an adjustable belay resistor that allows lightweight climbers to belay their heavier climbing partner. It allows for soft belaying - our testers say ZÆD feels like belaying / being belayed by a climber of the same weight. Now you can enjoy sports climbing with soft belays, regardless of the weight difference.
Choose your ZÆD
ZÆD comes in two flavors: stainless steel and titanium. The stainless steel version is robust, affordable and perfect for gym climbing. The titanium version is 20% lighter, so it's perfect for longer approaches to your favorite crag.
The table shows the maximum recommended weight difference for a safe and soft belay during a sports climb without and with ZÆD at its different friction levels. The adjustability makes ZÆD your perfect companion even for changing climbing partners with different weight.
