Our Titanium Rappel Rings are huge one-piece rappel rings forged from Grade two Titanium. As they are made from titanium, the rappel rings are designed to last decades – and still exceed the minimum 25kN breaking strain, even when 60% worn!
When the rope is pulled after lowering off, the end of the rope flicks the rappel ring into a random position, so that wear is spread evenly around the rappel ring’s large inner surface.
Key Features of the Titanium Rappel Ring
- Titanium Construction: Titanium is renowned for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Experience strength comparable to steel, but without the weight.
- Smooth Rope Transition: The meticulously smooth surface of the titanium ring ensures an ultra-smooth glide for ropes, reducing friction and minimizing wear.
- Versatile Utility: Beyond just rappelling, these rings can be seamlessly integrated into anchor systems or used for setting up belay stations, proving their worth in diverse climbing scenarios.
- Optimized Design: Engineered for an even load distribution, our rappel rings reduce stress points, ensuring consistent and reliable performance.
- Eco-Friendly Longevity: Titanium’s natural resistance to corrosion means fewer replacements over time, making it an environmentally considerate choice.
Why Use Titanium For Rappel Rings?
The choice of titanium for rappel rings stands a natural one due to its:
- Lightweight Durability: Titanium delivers the robustness required for climbing applications at nearly half the weight of steel, allowing for efficient and lightweight setups.
- Corrosion Resistance: Ideal for all environments, from salty sea cliffs to acidic rain regions, titanium’s unparalleled resistance to corrosion ensures longevity and consistent performance.
Uses for Titanium Rappel Rings
- Use as a replacement wear component at lower off and bolt belays.
- High line leash ring.
- Rock climbing.
