Zigzag
asc198

The popular Zigzag mechanical prusik has been redesigned! The ZIGZAG allows the user to move around efficiently in the tree in a moving rope system, just like you would with a classic prusik and pulley system, but with improved consistency of friction, precision, and control.

The friction chain provides precision and fluidity when positioning. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings for easy slack-tending. Can be used on either doubled ropes or a single rope (by using the separate Chicane add-on).

Release lever provides smooth rope feed, allowing great precision and control. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement.

Upper attachment hole has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis.

The Zigzag is redesigned with a fixed lower attachment hole to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and optimize grip.

The Zigzag Plus has lower attachment hole with high-efficiency swivel, to ensure stable positioning and optimal rope glide.

Also available in the Zigzag climbing kit!

Details

  • Intuitive to use:
    - technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system
    - the device locks automatically on the rope once the friction chain extends
  • For efficient movement within the tree:
    - rope feed is smooth and precise thanks to the release lever, allowing the user great control over his/her movements. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement
    - easy to take up slack, thanks to the pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings and the separated and curved side plates
    - lower attachment hole is fixed to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and optimize grip
  • Versatile:
    - for use on either doubled ropes or a single rope, thanks to the CHICANE accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the KNEE ASCENT assemblies, which facilitate the ascent
    - upper attachment hole for the rope end when using a doubled rope or for the CHICANE auxiliary braking device when using a single rope. It has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis
    - auxiliary attachment hole for adding a ZILLON lanyard or connecting a second system
  • Durability:
    - steel construction for improved durability
    - separated and curved side plates for better wear resistance
  • Rope compatibility: 11.5 to 13 mm diameter
  • ZIGZAG allows the user to work in compliance with the ANSI Z133 standard
