The STEIN DJANGO Foot Ascender has been designed in partnership with ISC following extensive feedback from industry professionals requesting a more robust product. Durability and Functionality were paramount during the development process! Utilising tried & tested geometry to provide a smooth upward movement and positive engagement on the rope.
Features & Benefits
The DJANGO unique Stainless Steel cam allows positive engagement on the rope for a firm and reliable grip, with minimal wear to the sheath.
The cam-spring underwent extensive testing to ensure that it offered sufficient tension (so as not to easily ‘pop-off’), but still allow the device to move freely upwards without towing the trailing rope.
Foot-operable Cam Lever:
The foot-operable cam lever can be used to easily open and close (engage/disengage) the cam. The cam lever can also be hooked over the body of the device to hold the cam in the open (disengaged) position.
Removable Cam Lever:
The foot lever can easily be removed should the user prefer by removing an Allen Screw. Removing the foot lever allows a greater range of pivot of the cam. This in turn allows the user to deliberately remove the rope from the device, by using a kick technique, with only the leg that the device is mounted on.
Abrasion Resistant Straps:
The DJANGO mounting strap and protective under-foot sleeve are made from specifically developed webbing. Undergoing extensive abrasion testing and field test show superior durability in harsh conditions.
Fully Adjustable Straps:
The DJANGO is fully adjustable on both the horizontal and vertical straps, allowing the user to position the cam body on the boot, according to preference.
The combination of the webbing design and the design of the mounting slots & buckles ensure that once adjusted to the desired position, (using the horizontal and vertical adjustment buckles), the DJANJO remains in position throughout use.
Easy to Fit/Remove:
The main Strap buckle is tightened by firmly pulling the webbing strap; and is released by pulling the toggle upwards in a one-handed action. The special design of the anti-slip buckle prevents unwanted strap loosening during use.
