Camp Turbo Chest

Sorry, this product is out of stock. We can notify you when this product is available:

The Camp Turbo Chest is a compact and lightweight chest ascender, featuring two proprietary rollers that provide smooth handling and operation.

Reducing dangerous wear where the rope can rub on the body on traditional ascending devices, the innovative rollers featured on the Camp Turbo Chest also improve climbing efficiency by making the upward glide much smoother. Thicker body plates and a shaped connection point reduce wear caused from shifting between the device and the connector, and also prevent the rope from escaping the device during tight pendulums and traverses by keeping it in line with the body of the device during use. 

Finished with a special anti-wear treatment, the toothed cam of the Turbo Chest ascender features drain holes to help prevent the build up of mud, grit and ice, and the opening mechanism is simple and secure with the ability to lock the device open for easier attachment. The removable pull cord also makes it easier to operate whilst wearing gloves. The proprietary rollers allow it to be rigged as a locking pulley for light hauling with a max load of 50 kg.

NB: This configuration is not intended for the hauling or securing of bodies.

    Very good

    Seems very well made, relatively smooth movement, handles mud and grit well (used for caving). The cam size and the rollers make it slightly harder to detach from the rope than other chest ascenders. The small size took a little getting used to, but doesn't seem to come with any real disadvantages. Slightly wider front-to-back than alternatives so perhaps a little more obstructive, but not noticeably so. Primarily suited to hybrid rope-walker configurations including a foot jammer due to the rollers, but also works well for standard frogging. Recommended, particularly in preference to the new Croll.
