Ultralight Fat Cam



The world's only soft-rock specific cams, Metolius Fat Cams are all about holding power. Direct Axle Technology™ makes Ultralight Fat Cams 20% lighter than previous versions, and allows for more placement options in bottoming, shallow, or narrow placements. These bad boys have the widest cam faces available, and optimized cam angles for maximum outward push on the sides of a placement. Each Fat Cam is hand built and tested in Bend, Oregon.
