Wild Country Superlite Rocks Description
Wild Country's versatile Superlite Rocks utilise two existing technologies: the extrusion from the bestselling Rock with the soldered sleeve from the Zeros, to create a light hybrid unit. Their innovative shape means that they combine light load weight with a wide range of placements - the reduced width means they will fit in places where current wider nuts won’t as well as grab shallow placements and pinscars brilliantly.
With their wide range of uses, the Superlites will appeal to anyone but could be of particular use when load weight is an issue, such as for big wallers, Alpinists and hardcore ‘trad’ climbers desperate to shave weight!
"...Superlight Rocks have a big advantage over many other small nuts in that as they are cut from 'Rock' extrusion they are ideal to be placed exactly as you would place a normal Rock,. This takes advantage of the curved sides for grip OR their side tapers make them ideal for getting extra hold in pinscars and other shallow slots..." - Wild Country
The weight saving is not just a slight one either, for those who want to shave lbs from their rack the Superlights weigh in at 90 grams for 6 instead of 164 grams for a normal Rock 1-6, a saving of around 45%.
""...The nuts where hammered in, hammered out, stamped on, twisted and generally abused, and although neither of us ever lopped onto them they looked fine after the climb – and I can see why people have raved about them. Best off all they went where rocks wouldn’t, replacing heavier and more costly RP style nuts..." Andy Kirkpatrick
