Totem Basic Cams are based on the famous Alien design by David Waggoner of Colorado Custom Hardware* with slight changes (new flexible trigger wire system and rounded lobe edges).
Internal cam springs for narrow head width. Sheath trigger for maximum flexibility. Stainless 5/32" 7 x 19 wire stem for all Basic Cam sizes. 16 degrees cam angle, soft lobes with teeth for well trusted holding power. Lobes are CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Double sheath on trigger. New rounded lobe edges giving more consistent rock contact on non parallel cracks and less flash material on lobe edges. The outer sheath layer has free rotation motion for improved abrasion resistance. New trigger wires system. Flexible and strong while maintaining a correct independent lobe motion.
CE certified and individually proof tested.
Cam Repairs can be undertaken by Totem.
