Totem Cams have a unique design which provides equalised loading onto each of the 4 lobes, this results in a safer and more secure placement by eliminating inactive lobes. This works particularly well in irregular sized cracks.
Another fantastic attribute of the Totem Cam is that it cam be placed with only 2 lobes under load, this does require you to clip it into the sling attachment point closest to the placement. Using the cams like this will significantly reduce stability and is only recommended for use in aid climbing.
The headwidths of Totem Cams are also a positive feature and are far narrower than some of the equivalent cams on the market, brilliant for use in pockets and shallow cracks.
Other key features include trigger wire attachments directly into the lobes, an incredibly flexible body, easy handling and a good expansion range.
