Glossary - Dyneema close

Dyneema is a brand of UHMWPE (Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) fibre which is gel spun to allow it to be easily incorporated into hundreds of applications. Dyneema fibres have a strength to weight ratio around 40% higher than aramid, which is used for many slings and cord, and 10-100 times higher than steel.

It has a number of advantages over nylon which is the traditional material of choice for climbing slings including good resistance to photo degradation from UV light and low weight. It does however deal less well with prolonged abrasion against rock than nylon.

Other companies produce UHMWPE under the names Spectra and Dynex, they are all essentially the same thing.

Glossary - Hot forged close

Hot forging is a method used to form stock metal into complex shapes. For many years aluminium alloys have been the material of choice for climbing equipment as they are lighter and much easier to manipulate than comparable steels. For decades karabiners and many other products were made using a technique called cold forging, which isn't possible with steel. This essentially involves squashing 'cold' (room temperature) pieces of stock aluminium alloy with a mould, known as a die, under very large pressures until it takes the form of the mould.

Recently manufacturers have started to move towards hot forging which involves heating the alloy in a furnace before forging it. This makes it much more malleable and allows substantially more complex and subtle shapes to be moulded under higher pressures. Both of these techniques are known as drop forging, when huge a huge hammer is 'dropped' onto the material to create the pressure.

The major benefit for the end user is that equipment can be formed using the bare minimum amount of metal required, rather than using more primitive shapes, making it lighter (and in some cases stronger aswell). It also makes the application of heat treatments after the forging much easier to control, increasing consistency and, by extension, safety.

Glossary - UIAA close

The International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation is the leading international representative body for climbers and works to promote thier interests including safty standards in climbing gear. The UIAA Safety Commission works closely with the industry to develop standards to minimise accidents caused by equipment failure.

A certified piece of mountaineering and climbing equipment carries a UIAA Safety Label, which indicates the equipment’s compliance with the UIAA standards. The UIAA first started to test ropes in 1960 and now has standards for 20 different categories of safety equipment, including helmets, harnesses and crampons.

The DMM Dragon II Camming Device Set

Save some p's by buying a bundle of DMM's new Dragon Cams. This new version of the Dragon Cam features a raw aluminium TripleGrip contact face on each lobe, giving extra friction against the rock when compared with a fully anodised cam.

     

Traditional cam lobe vs DMM TripleGrip cam lobe

Otherwise, you get the same double axle design, 13.75° camming angle, single flexible stem, hot forged thumb press and extendable dyneema slings. Dragons are also one of the strongest cams out there too, with a 14kN strength rating from size 1 upwards.

  • Hot forged in North Wales for amazing combination of lightness and strength
  • Twin axle design offers great expansion range and smooth action
  • TripleGrip lobes for increased friction
  • Constant 13.75° camming angle
  • 8mm extendable sling massively reduces chances that cam will walk and reduces drag
  • Strong springs resist cams walking into cracks
  • Moulded ergonomic trigger bar
  • Replaceable trigger wire
  • Colour coded and anodised to prevent corrosion
  • Made in UK
