Rappel 8

Rappel 8

SKU: CMC-300845

Color

Just right for SWAT teams, climbers, cavers, and sport rappelers, the slightly more compact design of the Rappel 8 offers superb control on smaller rope. Machined from a 1/2-inch (12.5-mm) aluminum plate and sporting CMC’s superior proprietary finish for even longer wear resistance, the Rappel 8 contains almost twice the material of other small 8s, providing better heat dissipation. Because the Rappel 8 was optimized for use with NFPA Technical Use rope (9.5-11 mm / 3/8-7/16 in), it is certified Technical Use.

* Certified range of rope diameters and CMC’s recommendation for best performance.

Super Finish On CMC’s Aluminum 8s 
Whether hard or soft, the surface anodizing on aluminum descenders eventually wears through. Working with a company that specializes in material coatings, we developed a finish for our Rescue 8 and Rappel 8 that outwears every descender we’ve used. After years of heavy use, test samples continue to be used in CMC School classes without showing any indication of the surface wearing through.

Climbing & Rappelling Applications
The Rappel 8 descender is a type of descent device commonly referred to within the climbing community as a figure eight descender and is used for rappelling and descent maneuvers in the field in rock climbing, mountain expeditions, canyoneering, tree climbing, caving, spelunking and adventure racing.
