Ultralight Offset Master Cam 0/1


My vote: None ( 4.5 avg )


The Ultralight Offset Master Cam shares all the same features as our Ultralight Master Cam but is a specialized design that has of two smaller lobes and two larger lobes to fit flared cracks and pin scar placements. CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams.

In millimeters and inches, the maximum dimensions of the cam lobes when shut tight and fully extended. Since the "usable" range is so debatable, all manufacturers now list the full dimensions to avoid selling themselves short.

For offset cams, we'll list the max dimensions possible and then afterwards list each of lobe dimensions.

Alpinist Gear Review rating 3/5

Overall, I give the Metolius Offsets a solid 3 stars out of five because the other brands with the thumb loops are easier to handle, have narrower head widths for shallow placements and their trigger sleeves are less likely to affect the placement when that part of the stem is bent over an edge. That said, the lobes of the Metolius Offset Master Cams do have great holding power, the units are among the lightest on the market and the price point is about $10 to $20 less than the aforementioned brands. With that in mind, I can say the Metolius Ultralight Offset Master Cams are a pretty good investment for a diversified rack.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
