When Dave Waggoner introduced his Alien cams to climbing, the art of technical placements changed. Alien cams are the best thin crack protection. The Alien hybrid units excel in pin scars and technical placements. Dave's design has been and will be copied in the future but so far this original concept stands alone.
There is nothing like the Alien from Fixe Hardware, and the Alien Revolution is an improvement on an already great design. They are 20% lighter than standard Aliens, with improved components and a narrower head width for tight placements. These amazing cams are great for aid and free climbing alike; and are perfect for pin scars and thin cracks. They feature stems that are very flexible in all axes, along with narrow head widths and soft alloy cams with a large camming angle and a very innovative trigger design that works beautifully as well as very durable. A tried and true design.
