C.A.M.P. Climb Cassin X-Draw 105. A.M.P. can reduce the impact of a factor 1 fall by up to 50percent thanks to the special construction that forces the draw to rip apart into a large open loop when a fall exceeds 2.5kN. The nylon shell protects the stitching from the elements and the Dyneema main loop is hydrophobic so it does not weaken as much as nylon when wet or frozen.
Camp USA's Cassin X-Draw adds security on ice, trad, and alpine climbs by drastically reducing fall impacts. When a fall exceeds 2. 5 kN, the X-Draw's nylon stitching rips apart to absorb the fall, while the Dyneema main loop stays strong, even in icy and wet situations. Camp USA tested this draw with a 176-pound dummy taking a factor 1 fall, and the impact fall reduced from 5. 5 kN down to 2. 5 - 3. 5 kN. The X-Draw also features a rubber keeper that keeps carabiners securely in place and protects the nylon sling from ice and rocks.
Engages at 2.5kN and reduces the impact of a fall Rubber keeper on the rope end keeps the clipping biner securely in place Nylon shell protects the stitching from the elements Available as a draw only or combined with Photon Wire Gate carabiners for the best possible configuration Take it easy on your ice screws and marginal trad placements. The new X-Draw shock absorbing ice draws reduce the impact of a fall using a special construction that forces the draw to rip apart into a large open loop when a fall exceeds 2.5 kN. The energy of the fall is absorbed and dissipates as the stitches rip apart thereby increasing the chances that the protection will hold. With a factor 1 fall using an 80 kg (176 lbs) test weight and a 10 mm dynamic rope, the impact force is reduced from up to 5.5 kN down to an incredible 2.5 - 3.5 kN. The open loop is still rated to 22 kN once the shock absorbing stitches have been ripped apart completely. A rubber keeper on the rope end keeps the clipping biner securely in place. The nylon shell protects the stitching from the elements and the DyneemaA(R) main loop is hydrophobic so it does not weaken as much as nylon when wet or frozen.
