The D1PRO TACTICAL+ Kit is available now, contact us for more information
We are delighted to announce the launch of the D1 Descender- the fourth in the range of D-Series specialist Descenders.
The first model to launch in the D1 Range is the D1PRO TACTICAL+. The D1PRO Descender utilises our patented D-Series progressive cam technology and specifically designed ø6mm (1/4") rope, to achieve genuine one-handed descent control, with performance characteristics comparable with those of an ø11mm (7/16") rope Descender device!
The kit contains four mid-line attachable components, which can be easily configured in order to transition between descent, ascent and hauling. This versatile kit offers a super-compact and lightweight solution to tactical users, who can carry the kit on their harness, ready to be quickly and efficiently deployed as required.
The D1PRO TACTICAL+ Descender is an auto-stop device (descent ceases, when the user releases the control handle). The absence of a panic brake on this 'PRO' model, allows the user the freedom to descend, without accidental activation of the panic brake.
The D1PRO TACTICAL+ Descender has two friction modes, enabling the user to transition between modes during their descent, by positioning the trailing rope accordingly, to engage/disengage the high friction spur.
D1PRO 'TACTICAL+' Accessories
A1 Ascender & C1 Combination Pulley
The A1 Ascender is an extremely compact, mid-line attachable device. The squeeze-style cam, allows for smooth, ergonomic adjustment. The attachment hole of the A1 Ascender accepts a Karabiner Connection (for use as part of a hauling/ascent system). Alternatively, the C1 Combination Pulley can be clipped directly in to the attachment hole of the A1 Ascender (without the need for a Karabiner/connector).
The C1 Combination Pulley has an attachment bollard (rather than an attachment hole) and a swing-cheek which is fitted with a spring-loaded closure mechanism. The profile of the bollard also allows for Karabiner connection. The attachment bollard profile features a central groove which is designed to centralise the Karabiner connector, keeping the pulley system balanced. The Pulley is fitted with a super lightweight Acetal wheel.
Micro Accessory Pulley
The Micro Accessory Pulley is an extremely compact (53 x 31mm / 2 1/16 x 1 1/4") pulley with a strength rating of 25kN (5620lbf).
The Micro Accessory Pulley uses a swing-cheek, with an Acetal wheel and an attachment hole which is suitable for a standard Karabiner connection.
Our design team took an holistic approach to the design of the D1 PRO TACTICAL+ Descender kit and developed the descender cam in unison with two specifically designed ropes:
ISC QUADRA rope has a unique four-strand Nylon core, which is protected by a highly heat resistant Technora Sheath. Technora decomposes at 498°c (930°F), with a Nylon core which is resistant to melting, up to 215-221°c (419-430°F). The Quad-core construction of this unique rope provides perfect support to the device cam and optimally balanced firm, yet flexible performance, with twist minimising qualities. ISC QUADRA rope offers superior performance and handling of the D1PRO Descender and accessories.
ISC ESCAPE6 is a full Technora Rope, with ultimate heat-resistant properties. Technora decomposes at 498°c (930°F) and therefore ISC ESCAPE6 should be chosen for applications where there is the risk of extreme heat (burning structures, etc).
The D1PRO TACTICAL+ Kit is suitable for use with ISC ø6mm ISC QUADRA or ISC ESCAPE6 Rope, only.
