Access the inaccessible

Petzl offers the Rad System, a complete, lightweight and compact equipment set with special lanyard designed for ski mountaineers for crevasse rescue, rappelling and roping up on the glacier to go around a crevasse zone. Those who work several meters above the ground every day, or are professionals in skiing need special safety and appropriate equipment. Rescue teams around the world dedicate their lives to saving others and rely on Petzl to do so.

With the complete ultra-light and extremely compact RAD SYSTEM (Rescue And Descent), professional ski mountaineers, winter sports enthusiasts and adventurers have the necessary equipment to rescue a comrade from a crevasse, abseil down or rope up while skirting a crevasse zone. The complete set consists of a transport bag, 30 meters of RAD LINE special reef cord 6 mm, carabiners, rope clamps and a webbing sling.

Ultralight, compact & mobile.

Both to carry in a backpack and part of an extensive ski equipment, the Petzl Rad System is the ideal solution for ski mountaineers. Thanks to the rewind, the rope is protected from knotting and twisting and is ready for immediate use. All components are safely stored in the transport bag. The transport bag with two loops on the outside can be perfectly attached to the harness or in the backpack. On the outside there is also an ice screw holder, as well as two webbing loops for attaching the components of the set. Weighing only 660g with 30m of reef cord, Petzl offers an ultralight wheel system that can easily and safely be present in all sporting activities. The stretch of the hyperstatic cord is less than 2% to facilitate rescue maneuvers and eliminate the yoyo effect when rappelling or catching a crevasse fall.

  • 30 m of RAD LINE 6 mm cord, developed specifically for crevasse rescue, rappelling, and roping up on a glacier when getting out of a crevasse zone
  • 3 Sm’D SCREW-LOCK carabiners
  • 1 TIBLOC ascender
  • 1 MICRO TRAXION progress-capture pulley
  • 1 ST’ANNEAU 120 cm sling

  • cord is folded for immediate use, eliminating risk of knots or twists
  • two loops on the exterior of the pouch for attaching it to a harness or inside the backpack
  • sewn webbing loops on the top of the bag for attachment of all components of the kit
  • ice screw holder on the outside of the pouch

Ultra-lightweight cord:

  • only 660 g for 30 m
  • flexible cord with rough-textured sheath for excellent handling and descent control when rappelling, and to aid in braking when arresting a crevasse fall
  • the hyperstatic cord has less than 2 % elongation, to facilitate rescue maneuvers and eliminate the yo-yo effect during rappels or fall arrest in a crevasse
  • Material(s): aluminum, stainless steel, high-modulus polyethylene (HMPE), polyester, nylon
