The Kong Hydrobot descending device exemplifies the best of the legacy of the Benaiti family’s heritage as a manufacturer of high-quality metal goods since the 1830s and Kong’s heritage as an innovator and visionary in the world of mountaineering since 1977. The Hydrobot descender features innovations like the magnet that retains its mobile bar, a first in products of its kind. The ability to overturn the bar makes it an excellent choice for anyone, as handedness or a bias to one side is no issue for this specialized device. While devices like these should be retired in the event of an accident or excessive force being exerted onto the device, the built-in auto-locking device can provide the tension needed in an emergency situation, making the device safe and reliable even in extreme climbing conditions. The Hydrobot comes with an unlimited 3 year warranty.
