Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

By going direct to the axle (D.A.T.) Metolius has made the world's best selling mini cam even lighter and more versatile. This new technology makes the Metolius Ultralight TCU Offset the lightest units in the world. The design is focused on holding power, and they do this with their optimized cam angle for more outward force and wider cam faces for more grip. The Range Finder system makes them easier and safer to place than ever. A must have piece for free climbing, aid routes and alpine climbing.

For flaring cracks and tricky pin scars (Yosemite anyone'), the Metolius Ultralight Offset TCU literally fills in the gaps where other protection just won't fit. The offset construction consists of two smaller lobes and one larger one, along with Metolius' Direct Axle Technology, which makes for lower weight and easier placements.

Metolius Rock Climbing Ultralight Offset TCU Cam - The Ultralight Offset TCU Cam by Metolius is designed specifically for hard to protect flared micro-fissures & pin scars. The narrow head width allows for more placement options in shallow, narrow, or bottoming placements and better cam lobe visibility makes tricky placements easier as well, especially in the small sizes. A Range Finder tells you at a glance if youâ??ve chosen the right size cam for the placement, while the wider cam faces and optimized cam angle offer more grip and increased holding power. CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams, the u-shaped body offers greater durability and unparalleled control during placement and retraction. Plus they carry CE and UIAA certification, which are baseline safety standards climbers have come to expect. So, if your in the market for the world's best selling mini cam, you have found it with the Ultralight Offset TCU Cam by Metolius.
