The Smarter is an add-on for the Smart 2.0 that reduces the risk of human error.
Human error is the main cause of risk whilst climbing, with the Smarter the device increases safety regardless of misuse of the belayer.
Belay devices that operate on the tube principle, such as the Smart 2.0 have one downfall, the higher up the breaking hand the less braking force the device has that could result in serious injury to the climber. The Smarter clips onto the Smart 2.0, and separates the lead and braking rope, ensuring neither are parallel. Consequently the device ensure the Smart 2.0 will triggered in the event of a fall regardless of the height of the braking hand.
Smarter does not activate the Smart 2.0 unless misuse or user error occurs in the event of the fall, moreover it does not compromise normal rope handling.
Smarter offers situations requiring greater safety, such as beginners and children, a means of reducing risk. It can be removed if required and attached to a climbing harness via the integrated loop or removed completely once competent rope handling skills have been achieved.
