Take a look at what a true leap forward finally looks like … Introducing the Omega Pacific Link Cam.
It’s a revolutionary concept from the legendary Greg Lowe and operates on the simple design that a cam lobe can be trisected and linked so that as the cam is retracted, the lobe unfolds and permits an amazing range for a unit of its size.
Utilizing a reliable, single-axle design, Omega Pacific's cam lobes exceed the closest competition’s range substantially. With a camming ratio of over 2.5:1, there’s nothing close to the Link Cam on the market today.
The Link Cam #1, for instance, covers the same range as up to four of our competitors cams! That extended range means you can leave the ground with fewer pieces on your rack. No more doubling up on pieces you think you “might” need if you’re unsure where, exactly, you’ll need doubles of one particular piece.
A constant cam angle of 13.5°
Increased surface contact between the retracted cam links and the rock.
Link Cams tend to “walk” less than other units.
The unique range eliminates the need for specialized, “offset cams” for flared-crack protection.
The range of Link Cams provides a greater margin of safety for “plug and go” placements.
Minimize the time spent fooling with gear — Link Cams are a perfect fit!
