Ultralight pro for free, alpine or aid routes-these versatile quad power Metolius cams feature Direct Axle Technology(TM) for lightweight performance. Direct Axle Technology allows greater placement options in shallow, narrow or bottoming rock features. Also makes tricky placements easier due to better cam lobe visibility, especially in the smaller sizes. New Ranger Finder(TM) markings eliminate guess work: Green Zone for go, Yellow Zone for caution or trade up sizes and Red Zone for stop! U-shaped body provides greater durability and better control during placement and retraction. Durable, flexible, stainless-steel cable body with long-wearing trigger slides are lightweight, strong and allow easy placement. Split-wire triggers with knurled trigger bars allow you to use one, two or three fingers-or even gloved hands. Features four wide CNC machined cams of super-durable 7075-T6 aluminum. Machined cam stops and radiused teeth increase cam durability and holding power; optimized cam angle applies more outward force. Lightweight Dyneema nylon slings are color-coded for quick, easy identification and less bulky than standard nylon slings.
Using Direct Axle Technology, Metolius removed every unneeded scrap of material from the Ultralight Power Cam to make it as lightweight as possible while still maintaining the ultra-strong construction for which Metolius is known. CNC machining and the use of ultralight, ultra-strong Dyneema for the sling helped Metolius deliver on both counts. Continuing the tradition of safety above all else, these cams also come with a unique range-finding system that lets you know if your placement is too tight or tipped-out, or it's spot on. And if you do end up with a tippy placement, cam stops give you one last chance at a piece of gear that will hold.
