This is CAMP's latest offering to the ascender world, and what an ascender.
The addition of the two pulley sheaves to this foot ascender reduces drag & guides the rope nicely through the cam. The footstrap is an improved design. But really the big benefit is lowering friction and increasing efficiency while reducing rope wear.
Having been put through rigorous testing in demanding conditions and massively out performed the other ascenders. This device will be at home on your SRT kit, fiddle block and rescue kit.
Even though CAMP isn't an Arboricultural household name yet, they've been in the business of climbing and caving equipment for over 120 years and are very much tried and tested.

We were lucky enough to have Pascal fly over from Europe to demo some of Camp's new products to us and as soon as we saw the Turbo ascender range we knew it was a winner. Such an efficient and well engineered device, all in a very compact package. Take a look at the video, it's well worth a watch!
