The Metolius Ultralight Curve Hex With Sling is one of the lightest hexes on the market. By attaching the cable directly to the hex and eliminating the swage they are over 10% lighter per set. Those are big savings for long treks in.

Traditional hexes are great - until you hit those nubbins and irregularities they just can't get past - unless you're using the Metolius Curved Hex Wired. Designed to cam into place, then lock with three points of contact, each piece has four different placement options for those truly gnarly routes.

Once in a while you'll come across some flared crack or oval shaped pocket that only takes a hex, and it's times like those that you appreciate having the Metolius UL Curve Hex with Sling on your harness. Metolius eliminated the swage by attaching the cable directly to the head for a lighter feel and better performance. Its curved design gives you more versatility in those odd places of protection and helps you set the hex in place and climb on. Metolius helped you out even more by added a durable Monster sling and color coding all the sizes to help you find the right hex quicker than you can pump out.
