The Picador Energy Absorber have been created with a patented tear tape construction which provides a consistent result when deployed. The Picador doesn’t come with a plastic sealed wrap around the tear tape as we believe that the tear tape needs to be able to breathe and be inspected; something that isn’t possible when you have a clear wrap around it and especially an issue when it becomes wet, allowing mildew to grow underneath the wrap.
We also have chosen for a specially engineered webbing to avoid annoying folded and sewn end pieces. This also allows for webbing keepers to be used to keep you carabiners in-line with the load.
Great for use in systems you build yourself in which it is a good idea to have an energy absorber.
