The Matik represents the revolutionary innovation of C.A.M.P. in the field of safety and abseiling devices with supported braking system for sport climbing.
It has been developed for dynamic single ropes from 8.6 to 10.2 mm diameter, with which it guarantees excellent rope throughput. The Matik ensures a very low impact force for enormously dynamic securing. The patented brake system (Patent Pending) brakes the rope gradually during a fall and thus enables a gentle and rope-friendly fall. Another special feature of the Matik is the innovative abseiling control, which is made extremely safe by the patented Anti-Panic-System (Patent Pending), which is triggered by an accidental or uncontrolled actuation of the catch, which serves to unlock. The mechanism intervenes as soon as the gate is opened too quickly, stopping the rope immediately. The system really makes the difference when it comes to overhanging/vertical rappelling or lowering without intermediate express sets, especially with thin ropes. The absence of movable side parts prevents the use of an open matik: If the cam is not in position, the safety karabiner cannot be attached. The climber will immediately notice that the Matik creates a very natural rope path, which prevents twisting and looping on the rope during abseiling. Combined with the dynamic locking system, which reduces the impact force, there is significantly less wear on the rope.
As the Matik is a device with an assisted braking system, it should always be used with care and responsibility by the safety personnel. The safer person must proceed constantly with both hands and NEVER release the safety rope.
