This tricam EVO set includes all 4 sizes that cover a 13.5 - 40mm range, and can be used in active cam or passive chock positions to fit where other gear won't on long trad climbs.
Features of the Camp USA Tricam Evo Set Three (yes, that's one additional!) placement modes: active cam and 2 passive chocks Works where nothing else can Fit, such as solution pockets Excellent in horizontal cracks Features new, stiffer sewing on the slings for easier one-handed placement and extraction
C.A.M.P. Big Wall & Protection Evo Tricam Set (0.25-1.5) 973. A.M.P.'s Tricam Evo Set is a logical evolution of the tried and true time-proven tricam. Some simple engineering provides a second chock possibility giving the Tricam Evo three (instead of the historic two) placement possibilities making it even more versatile. The wider section at the top of the head that creates the extra taper will also lend additional stability in cammed placements. Naturally the Tricam Evo features the new stiffened slings where we carry the inner band of webbing further towards the head using a new stitch pattern to create a naturally stiffer sling that makes one-handed placement easier but still engages the cam in active mode and will even increase durability over sharp edges with the additional layer of material.
The Tricam Evo is the logical next step in the evolution of tricam technology. The new design allows for a second passive placement to create a total of three placement possibilities. The Tricam Evo also features a stiffer sling for increased durability and to facilitate one-handed placement. These pieces are great for pockets and narrow placements that are deep enough to get into the wide range of camming sizes available to tricams.

When your protection options are limited to a horizontal crack or a sparse spattering of solution pockets, turn to the Camp USA Tricam Evo Set for secure, confidence-inspiring placement. Featuring a new design that uses three placement nodes instead of the traditional two, Tricam Evos provide additional stability in cammed placements. Plus, the stiff sewing on the sling allows for easier one-handed placements.
