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's 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.

Metolius Rock Climbing Ultralight TCU Cam - The Ultralight TCU Cam by Metolius is the world's best-selling mini cam. 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 you'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, the next time you come upon a pin scar or flaring crack, don't forget to use the Ultralight TCU Cam by Metolius.
