Petzl Control 12.5mm



CONTROL 12.5mm is a high-performance kernmantle tree climbing rope, with a unique feature: the super-slim eye splice can pass through the friction chain of the Zigzag!

The Control 12.5 mm low stretch kernmantle rope is designed for tree care. The small diameter ensures very good performance in terms of flexibility and weight. It has low stretch when loaded, increasing efficiency when moving through the tree. The EverFlex technology guarantees great flexibility and handling over time. It comes with a splice at one end for optimal rope glide through devices like a friction saver or pulley, and through tree branches. The small size of the splice allows it to pass through the friction chain of the ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks.
