On free, alpine or aid routes, these ultralight TCU cams feature Direct Axle TechnologyTM for awesome performance and weight savings.
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.
The Metolius TCUs are great for both alpine and free climbing where weight is a critical factor. Aid climbers also love 'em because their narrow head width allows them to fit so many placements that other cams won't, like shallow seams, pockets and pin scars. Designed for great performance when alpine, aid or free climbing, the Metolius Ultralight TCU is lightweight and has a narrow head width that allows them to fit where other cams won't. -- Narrow head width for the most placement options-- Range Finder color codes let you know that you've chosen the right size cam for the placement-- Direct Axle Technology(TM) (DAT(TM)) joins the axle with the U-stem, this fusion offers narrow head width enabling the TCU to fit in to shallower placements and reduces weight-- The U-shaped body offers greater durability than single-stem units and unparalleled control during placement and retraction-- Optimized cam angle for more outward force-- 13 mm Dyneema slings-- Stay organized with color-coded sewn slings and tubing-- CNC machine 7075-T6 aluminum offers greater precision than stamped or extruded cams-- CE/UIAA certified-- Hand built, inspected and individually proof tested in Bend, Oregon-- This set includes all six cams, #00 thru #4
Climbers love TCU's for their reduced weight, tenacious grip, thin seams, old pin scars, and easy placement in cracks. Metolius has maximized holding power in the TCU by optimizing cam angle and widening the cam face for greater surface area. While the range might be lower than other cams, their weight, versatility, and reliable function have earned them a place in most racks.
