Edelrid Ohm
£110.00





Edelrid Ohm is a revolutionary device that allow belayers to remain safe whilst belaying leaders when they have a large difference in weight.


Assisted-braking resistor to increase rope friction when there is a large weight difference between belayer and lead climber. In the event of a fall, the OHM increases the amount of rope friction so that a lighter belayer can hold a heavier lead climber without difficulty.






The review of the Ohm on UKC is worth a read if you are interested in how it performs in the real world.









PRODUCT INFORMATION










  • Belayer requires significantly less hand braking force to arrest a fall




  • Lowering a heavier climber is much easier to control




  • OHM is attached at the first bolt in the safety chain




  • Should a lead climber fall at the first bolt, the OHM significantly reduces the risk of a possible ground fall




  • Rope handling when belaying a lead climber not affected (no additional friction when paying out rope)




  • Recommended weight difference (lead climber > belayer): 10 - 40 kg




  • Minimum weight belayer: 40 kg




  • For single ropes from 8.9 - 11.0 mm
