Four individually loaded cam lobes obtain the best grip in every placement.

The Totem Cam's patented Direct Loading Camming Device system applies a perfectly equalized load directly onto each lobe, eliminating the risk of inactive lobes and therefore any outbalanced forces that might compromise cam placement stability. Where rock contact with four cam lobes is not possible, Totem Cam still offers the option to load just two lobes.

"At our facilities in the Basque Country, we have a CNC machine for manufacturing the main components, as well as all other necessary production resources, including a testing machine. All this enables us to wield the utmost control over the production process and so manufacture a product of the highest quality"

Totem Cam features everything you require of a cam for all-around use including:

 

Well-sized cam heads

The narrowest head width for the smallest sizes

Very flexible cam body

Easy handling even with hand gloves

 

  • Loadable on just two lobes.
  • Great holding power. Comparing with a regular Spring Loaded Camming Device system (system used by most other brands), Totem Cam is like a regular SLCD with approximately 13 degree cam angle combined with hard 7075-T6 aluminum lobes.
  • Less walking due to strong springs and good flexibility.
  • Good expansion range (1.64:1)
  • Light and durable.
