Product Description

The Metolius Supercam offers exceptional stability thanks to larger outer lobes and those offset cam lobes give almost twice the range of conventional cams. If you worry about proper placement, these cams have a Range Finder that tells you at a glance if you've chosen the right size cam for the placement.


CNC machined from 6061 T-6 aluminum for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams
The color coded slings and tubing make them easy to identify
Radical spring technology gives a precise, equally-tensioned pull throughout the entire range
Optimized cam angle for more outward force
They have wider cam faces for more grip
U-shaped body for greater durability and unparalleled control during placement and retraction
The asymetrical design yields a huge weight savings
Machined cam stops, offset cam lobes and a Range Finder round out the features.



Size Range (mm) Weight (g) Strength (kN)
Small 39.5 - 70.5 198 13.3
Medium 52.5 - 91.5 255 13.3
Large 66.5 - 118.5 312 13.3

There isn't an easier set up for a belay station. These things set solid as the rock I am climbing on. The range is fantastic!! The small one works fantastic to use for that quick fast placement when you need one as your pumping out. Try these out.

Just bought the largest size, I notice it tends to walk a little more than the smaller sizes in irregular placements. Still a good product, it just needs a little more care when placing, and needs adequate extension.
