The New Velox makes the original HAAS knee ascender even better. With an additional 18 inches of bungee cord in the system, the Velox is a one size fits all, zero set up, efficient rope access tool. Now the snap is tied just above the ascender and will extract out 30 inches, which eliminates any set up, as well as any “dead spots” in the return action. Still made by the guys at HAAS Tree Gear in Ohio. Additional information: The bungee is terminated at the top of the velox, travels down though a channel to the bottom where it is wrapped around a shiv with stainless steel sealed bearings inside a machined aluminum block for maximum friction reduction. It then returns back up a second channel where it is tied to the snap. The result is 31 inches of inline bungee are contained in the system at rest, allowing 30 inches to be extracted under load. Bungee is replaceable in under 5 min with no tools.
This version includes a foot loop.
A brass snap connects the bungee to your chest harness or bridge attachment.
Recommended for use in the ‘RopeWalker’ SRT climbing system along with a foot ascender.
HAAS also makes a version of the Velox with a clip for the ArbPro Clip N Step boots
The bungee cord is easily replaceable.
