Why We Like The Petzl NEOX Belay Device

For our climbers that pull hard and clip quick, we belay using Petzl's NEOX Belay Device. Like the renowned Grigri, the NEOX delivers cam-assisted blocking for added safety and control on catches and lowers, but unlike the Grigri, the NEOX features an integrated wheel that lets us take up and feed out slack quicker and easier, making it optimized for sport climbing.


  • New cam-assisted blocking device from Petzl
  • Aluminum and steel construction for lasting, reliable strength
  • Recycled nylon handle to lower weight and environmental impact
  • Internal cam auto-blocks rope when under load
  • Integrated wheel provides smooth and quick slack pay
  • Ergonomic handle for comfortable unblocking and lowering
  • Accommodates single ropes 8.5 - 11mm in diameter

This is THE Belay Device

I've used it several times

This device is sooooo sick. Lead belaying with the neox is SMOOTH AS BUTTER. It leaves virtually no chance of short roping your climber and still provides a quick catch when they whip. 10/10, 5 stars, Grade A+.. its seriously the best!

Straight upgrade from the GriGri

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This belay device feels really good, its super smooth feeding rope to a lead climber. The future is now.

THE device for lead climbing

I've used it several times
5' 6"

I LOVE this device. I cannot even explain to you how much of an improvement this device is for lead belaying over the traditional GriGri. I am a smaller woman and often am belaying someone over my height/weight, and the ability to feed without short roping is KEY. The device still catches like a beast AND you still have the control over lowering. If you mostly lead climb/belay this device is a MUST.

Best Lead Belaying Device

I've used it several times

The Neox is a phenomenal upgrade from the Grigri for lead belaying. The feeding is so smooth that you'd have to fight giving slack when the climber is clipping. Falls catch the exact same as the Grigri. I was worried that the lowering process would be too sensitive and I was pleasantly surprised with the friction. That being said, if you have a heavier climber, you will have to watch your lower a bit more than the grigri, but the difference wasn't huge like a Revo. Probably the one thing to take into consideration for buying this is that this device is really specialized for lead belaying on, generally, single pitches. My Grigri or Pinch is still preferred for a crew that might TR.
