The Comp Machine
Created for modern competitions and for dry tooling, where the routes are often more on the rock than on the ice, the Comp Machine is the definitive tool for hooking, allowing a greater performance on the rock. The further corner of The Comp Machine allows to switch hands with a perfect stability of the blade in the hold.

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
