Quick-Step Haas Velox Ascent System
The Haas works by utilizing the length of the lower tether to house operational bungee, which then transfers its energy to advancing the ascender up via the hollow tether. The result is a clean, small, light, efficient, cost-effective ascent system. A foot ascender and a HAAS is an entire ascent system for SRT or DRT. It can be added and removed from your system in a matter of seconds and can be set up with all current life support systems.

HAAS 08-98110 Velox Ascent System
If you have ever wanted to climb with two-foot ascenders, now you can! The HAAS is a non-traditional foot ascender that can be used in conjunction with a traditional foot ascender on the other foot. The HAAS allows you to walk up a rope as if you were walking a ladder, making it one of, if not the fastest easiest ways to enter a tree. The HAAS works great in double systems as well as SRT, in a double system all that is needed is a HAAS and a traditional foot ascender, both can be purchased at Russo Power Equipment.
The bungee is terminated at the top of the HAAS Velox, travels down through a channel to the bottom where it is wrapped around sealed stainless steel bearings inside of a machined aluminum block for minimum friction. It then returns back up a second channel where it is tied to the snap. The result is 31 inches of inline bungee are contained in the system at rest, allowing 30 inches to be extracted under load. Bungee is replaceable in under 5 min with no tools!
