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.
Rack up with the Metolius Ultralight Power Cam Packaged Sets and experience lightweight trad climbing at its finest. The package with sizes 1-4 consists of cams that fall on the smaller spectrum of hand-sized cams, and the package with sizes 5-8 fits the larger spectrum. Its lightweight appeal is due to the Direct Axle Technology, which places each lobe as close to one another as possible. This technology also helps you set each cam in tricky, shallow, and narrow placements with ease. Metolius made each piece with four wide lobes that increase grip on the rock as opposed to conventional four-lobed designs, and each lobe has a cam stop that helps it act passively like a stopper. CNC machined means each cam gives better precision so you don't fumble around when you're placing it. The U-shaped double stem is very durable, and yet remains highly flexible for better control when you're placing it or your second is cleaning it. Each cam comes with a color-coded Monster sling for easier identification on the wall, and the Range Finder on sizes 2 - 8 let you know if whether you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.
