Turbo Foot Evo Ascender - Right





The beloved Turbofoot ascender gets an upgrade with the Turbofoot Evo from CAMP. These foot ascenders are compact and lightweight as you would expect from top-quality climbing gear, but the real exciting development is in the rollers that sit opposite the tooth cam.

These rollers increase ascending efficiency and reduce wear on your climbing lines and the ascender itself. Can now be used in two different modes with the flick of a switch: free the cam to allow for immediate insertion and removal or lock the cam to prevent the possibility of accidental releases

The straps on the Turbo foot are easy to adjust and reinforced on the step.

Available right or left. Fits 8mm-13mm rope (up to 1/2"). Weighs 4.8oz.

WesSpur's Review

The Camp Turbofoot presents a new option for a foot ascender at WesSpur. Camp, a well known manufacturer of alpine climbing equipment in Italy, has made an excellent foot ascender- a device commonly used in treework as a key component in a ropewalker system.

I have been using the right foot version for several months now and absolutely love it. It's nice and compact, roughly the size of the original Pantin, but the thing that really shines are the rollers on the aft part of the frame. They do an excellent job of reducing drag on ascent; on many ropes they remove the need to weight the rope or have someone hold it until you get a few feet off the ground.

I personally have always had a hard time using a foot ascender that doesn't have a lock, but the Turbofoot stays on the rope very well in a ropewalker system. When used with a floating knee ascender it has a carabiner hole that allows a micro biner to lock the cam on the rope. The geometry of the straps allows the Turbofoot to sit perfectly on the inside of the users boot. The instep portion of the strap relies on friction from the sole of the boot to keep its adjustment. On some boots the tread interferes with this, but the issue is easily fixed by a bit of tape or a stitch. The webbing is a robust flat 3/4" width, with a very secure buckle. This is the slickest foot ascender I have ever used and I am currently replacing the other ascenders in my training kits with the Camp Turbofoot.

I have the original, not the Evo

by John -

Assuming the Evo is just an improvement with new feature as noted, and that it works as well as the original, then it should be great. I use this for every single rope climb and for any doubled rope climbs when hanging in space. It is good to my ropes, works smoothly, and has never had any issues. It is easy to attach to rope and release.
