Camp Matik Belay Device Description
Brand : Camp
Season : SS15
Code : 5030818
The Camp Matik is an assisted braking belay device, that combines easy, fool proof operation and a smooth, controllable action with excellent safety features.
The Matiks unique camming action means a smooth, gradual braking action, rather than abrupt arrest that may shock load your system. This camming action also means lowering and descending are very controllable and safe. Using a smooth cam over a more angular or toothed rope grab, means the Matik is also much kinder to your ropes too.
An in-built anti-panic function also stops the rope from feeding if you lose control or try to overextend the lever while lowering, making the Matik a great choice for use with inexperienced belayers or groups.
Usng the Matik is simplicity itself with no way of clipping the carabiner to the devive unless it is closed.
This is one of the best and innovative auto belay devices we've seen and is sure to become a firm favourite with a range of climbers and instructors, and in particular sports and indoor climbers.
