Description

Show Description

Popular cams with 3 lobes to keep the head small, making them a solid choice for shallow, narrow, and generally tricky placements. Clever engineering and Direct Axle Technology reduce the weight and minimize material at the junction of the axle and stems. U-shaped bodies provide control during placement and retraction, while the Range Finder colour coding helps you check the integrity of your placements.

  • Dual stem, single axle design with integral cam stops.
  • Made of 7075 T6 aluminum, steel, and plastic.
  • Range Finder colour coding on sizes 2, 3 and 4.
  • Slings are light, non-bulky 13mm Dyneema nylon blend.
  • This version has an open loop sling, no more bar tacking to position the cam on the sling.
  • Gnarled trigger for a fumble-free grip. Allows 1, 2, or 3 finger manipulation.
  • Size 000 is not CE certified.
