Rock Exotica DownRigger

Rock Exotica DownRigger

Rock Exotica DownRigger



The Rock Exotica DownRigger redefines aerial friction control with its innovative design and seamless functionality. This friction control device utilizes a pivoting bollard to generate friction on the rigging rope, whether placed aloft at the rigging point or used as a friction device at the base of a rigging system. Its swivel feature allows unrestricted movement for groundies (or climbers), minimizing rope twists during operation. When loaded, the Rock Exotica DownRigger applies friction to the rigging line, enabling precise load descent control by hand. With its Rock Exotica swivel top and double-locking side plate, rope installation is efficient and hassle-free. Designed to accept ropes from 12.5 to 14mm and rated to an impressive 31 kN with a 1.33 kN working load limit (Safety Factor 23:1), the Rock Exotica DownRigger ensures safety and reliability in any tree rigging scenario.
