On free, alpine or aid routes, these ultralight TCU cams feature Direct Axle TechnologyTM for awesome performance and weight savings.
Metolius designed its Ultralight TCU to give you tiny but bomber trad gear that doesn't weigh you down. 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 TCU with three wide lobes that increases its grip on the rock as opposed to conventional TCUs or even 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 - 4 let you know if you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.
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. -- Narrow head width for the most placement options-- Range Finder color codes gives you feedback; easier and safer placements-- Direct Axle Technology(TM) (DAT(TM)) joins the axle with the U-stem, 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-- Stay organized with color-coded sewn slings and tubing-- CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams-- Constructed of 7075-T6 aluminum-- CE/UIAA certified-- Hand built, inspected and individually proof tested in Bend, Oregon-- The free set includes four cams, #1 thru #4
