Petzl Absorbica Y

by Petzl

Double lanyard with integrated compact energy absorber, for continuous protection when passing intermediate anchors. It is available in 80 or 150 cm versions (without connectors). The 150 cm version has elasticated arms, to avoid hindering progression. Available with or without MGO large-opening connectors, it is certified to European and Russian standards. Please note that the MGO version is sold as a separate product on this website at the Gearshack.


  • Designed for continuous protection when passing intermediate anchor points
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    - tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
    - works with users who weigh between 50 and 130 kg
    - progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users
  • Minimal bulk:
    - compact energy absorber facilitates handling
    - the 150 cm version has elastic arms, to avoid hindering progression
  • Abrasion resistance:
    - durable zippered fabric pouch protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
    - lanyard and pouch reduce the risk of cuts and potential severing over edges
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    - frequent connection/disconnection: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING (included with the lanyard) or with a MICRO SWIVEL to avoid tangling
    - semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning, or with a SWIVEL OPEN to avoid tangling
  • Available without connector or with MGO large-opening connectors (view as a separate product), also in two lengths: 80 and 150 cm


  • Material(s): polyester, nylon, high-modulus polyethylene, aluminum
