Black Diamond Super 8 -

The Super 8 is an anodized, super light and full size figure 8 that works extremely well when rappelling. Its traditional shape allows the rope to smoothly flow with the right amount of friction for the task. The Super 8’s design uses thinner diameters on the ends and thicker diameters towards the middle, making it light, durable and functional. The small hole can also be used for belaying. The Super 8 is great for climbs involving multiple rappels.


  • Unique design using thicker material on friction points for durability


  • Full size for both belay and rappel.
  • Full-size belay/rappel device is light and functional


  • Traditional shape is great for rappelling.
  • Read instruction manual and warnings carefully before using.**

The Black Diamond Super 8 is anodized, super light and full-sized for belaying and rappelling. Its simple, classic shape allows the rope to flow smoothly whether you're running double ropes up to 9 mm or a single 11.

The superior qualities of drop-forged 7075-T6 aluminum alloy and flawless design give this a unique lightness and strength. Designed with belaying in mind, the small hole can be used for belaying with 8.5 mm to single 11 mm ropes. In its traditional role, it provides a smooth efficient means of rappelling. Wt. 3.1 oz.

Black Diamond Super 8 Review:


The Standard

Look, I love this device for climbing and rappelling for it's simplicity. If you're looking for a feature-rich product, this will not double as a GPS and wax your car. What it does do; it does extraordinarily well. It stands up to dings and friction and no moving parts means lesser chance of equipment malfunction. It's wide enough to double rope 11mm but works just as comfortably with a single 9mm.
