The BRD is both versatile (single or double ropes) and lightweight. The Element Screwgate biner is perfect for the BRD, munter hitch and other belay devices. The ergonomic horn of the BRD gives enhanced control while lowering and rappelling. It is easy to operate, has a high strength-to-weight ratio and doesn't kink ropes. With its enormous stopping power and slower, more controlled rappel, BRD is an extremely safe plate-style device.
