Retractable via ferrata lanyard with progressive tearing energy absorber and VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK carabiners

The SCORPIO VERTIGO lanyard for via ferrata is equipped with two VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK carabiners. It has two arms that are retractable to avoid interfering with movement, and a progressive tearing energy absorber enclosed in a zippered protective pouch, allowing the absorber’s condition to be inspected. The lanyard also has a third arm to facilitate traverses or to allow attachment to a bar (in order to rest, for example).


  • Facilitated progression for optimal protection:
    – two retractable arms facilitate access to VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK carabiners and do not interfere with progression
    – one short arm for attachment to bars, for Tyrolean traverses or for progression close to the cable (must be used with a type K locking carabiner, not included)
    – twisted attachment sling facilitates connection to the harness with a girth hitch
  • Manipulations when passing intermediate anchors are facilitated by VERTIGO WIRE-LOCK carabiners:
    – excellent handling
    – WIRE-LOCK automatic locking system is easy to use
    – large opening for easy connection of carabiner to cable
    – Keylock system helps avoid the carabiner snagging during maneuvers
    – especially suitable for intensive use
  • Better equipment inspection:
    – protective pouch with zippered closure for the progressive tearing energy absorber enables its condition to be checked.
    – usage tips for the via ferrata lanyard displayed on the energy absorber pouch
