Get a grip in those placements where other cams can’t!

The evolution has become a revolution! - the much extolled flexible Alien cams have just got even better!

Alien cams have always been known for excelling in thin shallow cracks, the ones we frequently dream about climbing high above the Yosemite valley floor. What makes Aliens stand out from the crowd is their flexibility, narrow head width and soft metal that gives them a far greater bite when loaded and therefore enhanced security in marginal placements.

The head of the Revo Cam has a riveted axle plus increased friction and holding power giving you the confidence to make the moves that matter! The steel cable has been built to have increased strength and flexibilty compared to the original Alien. This allows the Revolutions to be slipped deeper into cracks whilst reducing the effects of rope drag.

The head is where all the action takes place. The cams have internal springs to give a narrow head width allowing placement in thin cracks. The trigger wires are made from durable wire rod, these are replaceable meaning your Aliens will give you many years of trusted service - even if your second does not treat them quite so preciously as you!

The trigger design has been improved in the Revolutions. The thumb pull is an ergonomic design, manufactured from aluminium for durability it is also colour coded to help you identify your pro as you battle to cling on. 

The length of the handle has been increased for better placements in deep cracks and easier recovery, two small lateral slots on either side of the trigger facilitate release with an extraction tool should your leader have been a little heavy handed with his placements!

Sewn 10 mm dyneema slings give strength, abrasion resistance and great handling. Revolution Cams are available in two styles of sling. Option 1 is the long sling. We think this is the most flexible, it is doubled up so can be used as either a 120 mm or 240 mm sling. The short sling (coming soon) is a single 120 mm loop.

One thing to note is that Aliens cannot be used as passive protection, i.e. as a jammed placement like a nut or a hex.

Excellent, versatile cams

I recently swapped out my Black Diamond X4s for a set of these new Alien Revolutions. Initially, I was slightly skeptical as I had heard some disquiet about previous versions of these cams upon their reintroduction. Regardless of what may have come before them, I can say that these are hands down the best micro cams I have used. They combine the biting power and flexibility of a Totem basic with the handy extendable sling of a Dragon or Friend. They don't walk as easily as stiffer cams and are simply excellent on UK trad routes. I have been able to place these in pitches of climbing which have reputations as "poorly protected" and been confident in the placement of these, only to find out later that it was a "serious" pitch. Simply put, it may be a cliché, but these just go where other cams do not. An excellent product.
