What is an Auto-Belay? “Belaying” is a climbing term that describes the process of
taking up slack in a climber's safety line as they ascend, and then safely lowering
the climber when they either fall or wish to descend. In traditional rock climbing,
this process is managed by a “Belay Partner”. The term “Auto-Belay” is used to describe
a device that replaces the “Belay Partner” with a mechanical device.
Which Auto-Belay system do we have? We chose Spectrum Sports auto belay system. Spectrum
Sports is a company that has been behind the auto-belay climbing movement from the
very beginning. They pioneered the technology and built the very first hands-free
auto belay device for climbers in the '90s. Since then they've been safely protecting
climbers from falls using their advanced automatic belay device. They have more experience
with auto-belays than any other company.
How does the Auto-Belay work? The Spectrum Sports auto belay safety system is an air/oil
hydraulic apparatus. As a climber ascends, air pressure works upon the device in
a manner that collects any slack in the climber's safety line. When the climber descends,
oil flow thru the device is restricted in a manner that safely slows the rate of
descent. Four generations of design evolution, 3rd party engineering, and millions
of safe cycles worldwide have proven that the Spectrum Sport Intl Auto-Belay device
is the safest and most reliable on the market.
