Petzl Absorbica I Vario


Adjustable single lanyard with integrated energy absorber.

SKU: L64IAR 150 Category: Tags: , ,


The Petzl Absorbica I Vario is an adjustable single lanyard with integrated compact energy absorber designed for protection on a horizontal lifeline (rope or cable) or on an elevated platform. This lanyard features the VARIO adjustment system, allowing the lanyard length to be adjusted in order to reduce the potential fall height.

  • Designed for protection on a horizontal lifeline (rope or cable) or on an elevated platform
  • VARIO adjustment system allows the lanyard length to be adjusted from 150 to 100 cm in order to reduce the potential fall height
  • 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
  • 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)
    – semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN, whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning
  • Two connector options for the end of the lanyard: a locking carabiner, or MGO OPEN connector with large gate opening


  • Material(s): polyester, nylon, aluminum
  • Certification(s): CE EN 355, CE EN 354, EAC
