Season : Perennial

Code : 5065400

Weight : 0KG

Set of three in sizes 1,2 and 3

The iconic Friend by Wild Country has seen a rather significant re-design. Throughout their 38 year tenure, although the construction has changed, their essence remains the same. At the heart of each iteration has been the definitive 13.75 cam angle; described, refined and developed by Wild Country and proven in thousands of miles of cracks climbed since 1977!

The New Friend now has a twin axle design that puts this cam on a comparable level to the other market leaders by providing greater stability when placed in irregular features. Now with hollow axles (Patented) which are stiffer for less weight,  Wild Country have removed the anodisation on the cam lobes and made the stem longer to give a more secure grip and the ability to place further into a crack system. A new 12mm dyneema sling is agile and easily extended, saving time and the weight of having to use a quickdraw on each Friend.

At its core, Wild Country's 13.75 constant cam angle provides the axis around which future climbers will place their trust. Robust and reliable this Friend combines classic features and significant additions to create an intriguing mix of old and new. Externally, stylish with significant design flourishes mean the eye is drawn to any number of clever upgrades. 

Internals are based on classic Wild Country foundations; their legendary holding power and the consistency of overlap between units, whilst the twin axle has allowed Wild Country to increase the range per unit. Never defined by how it is built, but by how it performs, the friends iconic status is simply enhanced by this twin axle version. Crucially, this is design at its most practical making the new Friend the only twin axle cam that combines the convenience and comfort of a thumbloop with the speed and utility of an extendable sling.

Faster, smoother, lighter in use and superbly finished; we believe that Wild Country's clever combination of key features with innovative engineering makes the new Friend one of the most complete cam available.

    Delivery

    Mainland UK

    We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours.

    Free UK shipping is available on all orders over £25. Smaller items will be sent with Royal Mail Tracked 48 and bulkier items with Parcelforce.

    All customers will receive an e-mail with tracking information. This e-mail is generated when your order is processed but in some cases the parcel will not leave our premises until the following working day.

    If you want your items quicker, we offer a Priority Next Day Shipping option at an additional cost of £4.75. This is available on the checkout page. This service is for mainland UK orders (N. Ireland, Highlands & Islands excluded) and is a signed for service. In most cases we use Parcelforce Express 24 but, in some instances, we may use Royal Mail 1pm Special Delivery. You will receive an automatic tracking e-mail with a link to your parcel details.

    There is also the option for Saturday Delivery at a charge of £12. This service is for UK orders only and guarantees delivery on the next Saturday morning. Orders for this service must be placed before 12pm on the Friday before. This service also requires a signature on delivery.

    Please note that for orders to N. Ireland, the Highlands & Islands, next working day / Saturday deliveries cannot be guaranteed. Please call if you have any specific out of area delivery requirements.

    Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee delivery times.

    All items are advertised subject to availability. If we are ever out of stock of an item and cannot supply within a few days, we will e-mail or phone you. You will have the option to cancel your order, wait or accept an alternative.

    We are a small retailer, and while we do have a modern EPOS system mistakes can still happen. Inevitably we may therefore occasionally sell out of an item that is still showing on the website as in stock. If we have sold out of an item, we cannot always repeat or supply future stock at the same price.

    Royal Mail parcel post typically takes 3 working days (90%), as does second class letter post (98%). Over 90% of first class letters are delivered the next working day.

    Overseas Shipping Charges

    Our overseas shipping and postal charges outlined in the tables are based on the following approximate weights.

    Parcels shipped to Europe – Up to 20Kg

    Parcels shipped Globally – Up to 5Kg.

    If your parcel is heavier or especially bulky we will e-mail you with a revised shipping quote. You will not be obliged to pay this, however we reserve the right to refuse the order if the shipping costs are not paid. We will do all that is possible to keep the shipping costs to the minimum while still using a quality and reliable service.

    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
