Description

Season : SS15

Code : 5030818

Weight : 0KG

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. 

    Buyers Guide

    Camp Say:

    'The assisted braking action of the Matik derives from an innovative camming design that makes the device safer and easier on the climber, the belayer, the anchor and the rope. Instead of using a blunt angle to pinch the rope abruptly when the cam is engaged, the Matik is built so the cam rotates in and comes in line alongside rope before it captures the rope completely. This alignment allows a much larger contact area between the cam and the rope (this makes the device more rope friendly than other auto-blocking devices), and the slight amount of slippage that occurs as the cam rotates into place reduce the impact force of a fall. This means less force on the bodies of the climber and belayer, and on the anchor! When lowering, the proprietary Anti-Panic system helps prevent one of the most common accidents occurring with the use of an auto-blocking device — losing control of the descent. The brake lever will automatically disengage causing the cam to automatically reengage if it is opened too quickly or if it is kept too far open where the speed of the descent can become unmanageable. This unique safety feature is particularly useful where there is little friction from rope drag between the belayer and the climber or during topdown descents where the Matik really delivers an unparalleled sense of safety and control. Users will also instantly notice that the Matik creates a very natural path for the rope that does not require looping or twisting of the rope during descent. Combined with the dynamic camming action that limits the impact of the fall, this more natural rope path helps to reduce wear and tear on the rope. Other distinguishing features of the Matik include a better method for inserting the rope that eliminates the possibility of clipping a carabiner to the device until it is completely closed.
    NOTE: The assisted braking capability of the Matik does not relieve belayers of the need to adhere to the basic principles of belaying and rappelling. It is imperative to be attentive to the climber’s progress and always keep control of the brake line.'
