The Curve Hex from Metolius is an innovative and indispensable anchor option for trad routes. Curved faces improve the range of the pieces, all with the same strength rating of regular hexes. They outperform cams in icy, wet and dirty cracks, have no moving parts to maintain, and make a great starting point for exploring the possibilities of traditionally protected routes.
- The gentle curves allow the Curved Hexes to cam into position by rotating on the convex face and setting up a triangulations with the concave side, it also allows them to slide past nubbins and irregularities that would block a traditional Hex.ex
- They are incredibly lightweight (extruded 6061 - T6 Al) and about 1/5 the price of quality camming units.
- Color coded tubing makes identification easy.
