The original curved nut and probably the best selling piece of pro’ ever, Wild Country Rocks recently got a sweet makeover to bring them back to the forefront of passive pro technology.
These ultra-stylish units will give an extra dimension to any rack making selection and placement faster and better than ever.
Relatively recently upgraded they continue to lead the pack offering a host of unbeatable features:
Increased range up to size 14 - A simple but obvious of changes was to increase the size range. This meant that Rocks became a great wired equivalent to the mega-useful Rockentrics, a simple and cheap equivalent to bigger cams for those just starting out as well as better tool for winter climbing.
Thinner & Lighter - The side-walls on sizes 7-14 have been slimmed making these new units incredibly light for their size and meaning you can carry more for less weight. For example if one compares the old sizes 7 – 10 which weighed 216 grams / 8.5 oz with the new sizes at 186 grams / 7.3 oz there is around a 14% saving – a not inconsiderable sum from an essential part of your rack..
Anodised colour coding - Supercool matt anodising makes Rocks easier to distinguish and faster to select. It is also important to note that each colour co-ordinates with the equivalent Friend and Zero size as well as all other colour coded Wild Country products. e.g a Rock 6 in Red is the same size as a Zero cam 6 and a Friend ?..
Tapered sides - A neat five degree side cut gives new and more solid ‘end-on’ placement possibilities.
