Basic Cam Feature Breakdown, 44 kbBasic Cam: a well known design with some quality innovations

Basic in name, superlative in use. The Basic Cam use internal springs and sheath trigger systems to get a narrow head and a very flexible body. Based on the legendary CCH Alien cam design of David Waggoner, Totem have nonetheless done their bit to improve it: flexible trigger wires, rounded lobe edges, internal spring on blue size, color anodized upper trigger plate, diagonal micro teeth on cam lobes and more.

  • Internal cam springs for narrow head width
  • Sheath trigger for maximum flexibility
  • 16 degrees cam angle, soft lobes with teeth for well trusted holding power. Lobes are CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy
  • Double sheath on trigger. The outer sheath layer has free rotation motion for improved abrasion resistance
  • NEW trigger wires system. Flexible and strong while maintaining a correct independent lobe motion
  • NEW rounded lobe edges. More consistent rock contact on non parallel cracks and less flash material on lobe edges
  • Four well scaled regular sizes from blue to red
  • Three hybrid sizes. The perfect complement for both Totem and Basic Cams
  • CE certified and individually proof tested
