By popular demand, the most popular Tricam sizes are also available with Dyneema slings. These are slightly stronger in camming mode without any additional weight and realize the unique benefits of Dyneema. Compared to nylon, Dyneema maintains a higher breaking strength when wet and its natural hydrophobic properties prevent the slings from soaking up water and icing over. Updated for 2013! Our engineers recently spent some time working on one of the age-old questions with the Tricam: how to stiffen the sling without impeding its ability to engage the camming action. After much experimenting, we rested on the simple solution of carrying the inner band of webbing further towards the head and using a new stitch pattern. The result is a naturally stiffer sling that makes one-handed placements easier, but still engages the cam in active mode and will even increase durability over sharp edges with the additional layer of material.
