CAMP Matrix Comp Via Ferrata

Brand: CAMP
Model: Matrix Comp
Availability: Discontinued

If your technical rando race calls for navigating a fixed rope line, the CAMP Matrix Comp lanyard set is your default safety option. The Matrix Comp is CAMP's lightest via ferrata lanyard set that uses the Matrix shock absorber, which is a patented 4 point device that is designed to soften the blow of any missteps. Simply clip the Icarus slide-locking carabiners into the rope one at a time as you pass the fixed rope anchors, leaving the other attached to make sure you're protected. Fasten the bottom end of the via ferrata kit to your harness with a biner or simple girth hitch.

  • Matrix 4 point shock absorbing plate is concealed in a pouch so you don't get pinched.
  • 12mm Dyneema┬« lanyards are strong, light, and won't absorb moisture when in contact with the snow.
  • Icarus slide-locking carabiners are a cinch to use with one hand to lock you onto the rope.
  • Dyneema harness attachment has a twist in the loop to keep the lanyard in the proper orientation.
  • Fully CE and UIAA certified.

Update 2018: CAMP has replaced the Matrix Comp with the Kinetic Rewind.

Question from TZed
 
Is this via ferrata set still ISMF legal since it was discontinued by CAMP? The new EN 958 standards seem to invalidate this set in favor of the new Kinetic Rewind Comp

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey TZed! Based on the incredibly confusing UIAA, ISMF, and EN documentation that I just spent way too long reading, you *should* be fine to still use this one. The EN 958 sounds like it's more broad and encompasses more setups whereas the UIAA is a bit more strict. What I understood is that most any UIAA compliant setup will pass the EN 958 standard, but there are a few EN 958 setups that don't fall under the UIAA standard.
