WINNER - Win a CAMP Matik

WINNER: Brian Goodman


In conjunction with the recent UKC Review CAMP are giving away a Matik Belay Device.

"If you are after a well made, high spec assisted breaking device then look no further" - Rob Greenwood, UKClimbing

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.
