Product description
The Ohm is a device by Edelrid that on the one hand allows for much heavier people to abseil. On the other hand, it is hanged into the first express sling with the inserted rope which lets it serve as a ballast resistor the roped party can then abseil as normal. An Ohm neither increases friction during normal rope release while abseiling nor does it negatively affect the rope feed. The break function is only activated if you fall, and therefore helps to dynamically slow down a person that weighs up to double the usual amount and securely break their fall.

For this, the ohm increases the friction in the chain of safety and was, above all conceived for use in climbing halls as well as sports climbing on rocks. In this way, the device by Edelrid serves as a brake booster of sorts, so people of different weights can climb together without being afraid that they will not be supported in case of a slip up, or that they will be pulled onto, or rather into the wall!

Defiantly would recommend

Regularly climb with my best mate who is half my weight. Makes life much better for us both as don’t need to weigh her down to keep her on the ground (still doesn’t work for a lead fall!) and she can now belay confinatly that she can manage to keep me safe and I can lead safe in the knowledge she can manage. Can also use for top rope work by running the down rope through the device but that’s outside scope of instructions. I have changed the Ali carabiner to a steel lock gate due to the risk of cross loading and carabiner getting eaten by steel wall fixtures.

This is a great piece of kit. I use it when I'm climbing and my daughter is belaying, she's a fraction of my weight and we tested the device before using, in a fall she feels the pull but it's all kept safe by the Ohm.
