Bringing balance to the weight difference.

Edelrid Logo

Overview

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 Edelrid OHM increases the amount of rope friction so that a lighter belayer can hold a heavier lead climber without difficulty.

Weight: 470 grams

Features

  • 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)

Technical Specs

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

  • Minimum weight belayer: 40 kg

  • For single ropes from 8.9 - 11 mm

  • Weight: 470 g
