X-Cam Technology

X-Cam™ Technology is an advanced, high performance design featured in all heightec rope access ascenders as well as the CYCLONE and HURRICANE hauling pulleys.

Our unique cam design is a considerable improvement on traditional sharp toothed cams.

High strength toothed cam has a tensile strength around 50% greater than competitor models.

Advanced features of X-Cam Technology:

  • High strength durable construction
  • Highly effective on angled ropes
