Giving you the best grip for jugging icy, muddy ropes (think Denali's West Buttress or some gnar-ed out fixed cord in the Fisher Towers), the Black Diamond nForce ascender generates more clamping force than conventional designs. The spacious grip accommodates gloves, and a 360-degree biner clip-in point allows full rotation of locking biners.
Black Diamond nForce ascenders are the perfect choice, especially on icy or muddy ropes. Four-bar linkage for greater holding power 360-degree carabiner clip-in points Spacious grip improves dexterity and cam manipulations
Key Features of the Black Diamond nForceFour-bar linkageCarabiner clip-in pointsQuick-release triggerSpacious gripBlack Diamond nForceEnforce your grip in your ascent to the apex with the style and excellent performance of the Black Diamond nForce. Featuring a four-bar linkage system, the nForce puts your weight on the cam to have the strongest holding force on mud-sticky and frosty ropes than any other ascender. You can lock in a carabiner and your harness on the 360-degree carabiner clip-in points of the nForce. Sliding the ascender down the rope and hauling it up are made smoother by its quick release trigger. Its stainless steel cam is spring loaded so your ropes can easily go through the cam's opening. You can also use your index finger or the cam's trigger in controlling the nForce, giving you convenience. Polyethylene coated, the ascender's grip is spacious so you can maneuver the cam comfortably, even when you're using your gloves. The grip will also keep your hands warm from sticking and freezing during cold days. Now, reaching the summit is within your grasp with the Black Diamond nForce.
The Black Diamond nForce Ascender uses a unique four-bar pivot system that gives you a 33% better grip than a standard ascender, and it comes packed full of features that make cleaning pitches easier than you ever thought possible. A unique trigger-actuated release makes it easier to slide up your bottom ascender when you're low on a pitch and you don't have any rope weight to help you yet. Since the nForce Ascender works on ropes all the way down to 8mm, it also makes a solid choice for expedition-style mountaineering with fixed ropes. Whatever you need it for, this ascender has you covered, and then some.
