Totem cams are a unique solution to protecting small, flared, shallow or unusually shaped cracks.
The patented Direct Loading Camming Device system (US patent 7,014,156) applies a perfectly equalized load directly onto each lobe, eliminating the risk of inactive lobes and therefore any outbalanced forces that might compromise cam placement stability. Where rock contact with four cam lobes is not possible, Totem Cam still offers the option to load just two lobes.
Totem Cam is Quality Made. Totem manufacture the main components and they undertake the entire assembly process. Eight years of product development have provided them with the technical skills to ensure a quality job. Totem Cam is CE certified by Cete Apave Sudeurope (Notified body number 0082).
- Well-sized cam heads with the narrowest head width for the smallest sizes
- Very flexible cam body
- Easy handling even with gloves
- Loadable on just two lobes
- Great holding power. Comparing with a regular Spring Loaded Camming Device system (system used by most other brands), Totem Cam is like a regular SLCD with approximately 13 degree cam angle combined with hard 7075-T6 aluminum lobes
- Less walking due to strong springs and good flexibility
- Good expansion range (1.64:1)
- Light and durable
'...it’s a no brainer that they are highly recommended for big wall climbing, and there is nothing on the market that comes close to having their ability to hang on to the rock. Beyond that any climber who climbs on rock that can be hard to protect (limited placement options) will find these a boon, because if these don’t work, nothing else will. If you already have a large cam rack then perhaps having 2 sizes of Totem (Yellow and Green) to expand your cams would work really well.' Andy Kirkpatrick
