Advance Tech HX



MAX ROPE CAPACITY12.5mm (1/2")


The Advance Tech HX double pulley with integrated cam provides immediate progress capture without the need of prusik loops.

Stainless pins retain the rope when a rigged system is packed so that system can be pulled out and used immediately. Manufactured from high-quality aluminum and anodized to help prevent corrosion. Ideal for all rescue applications where a small mechanical advantage system is being utilized. The most advanced pulley of its kind!

An aggressive cam located inside the side plates close to the pulley wheel means that cam action is immediate without loss of progress or energy which is apparent in prusik systems. Also exclusive to the Advance Tech HX is a spring-loaded cam that doesn't require separate pins or other gimmicks to operate safely. Simply pull the cam lever back with your thumb to set the cam in a parked position and another flip of your thumb will again engage the cam. That means resets in piggyback rigs are fast and easy.

Works with ropes from 7mm to 12.5mm (up to 1/2").

Be sure to review the included instructions for the SMC Advance Tech HX pulley. Your choices when rigging the Advance Tech HX will alter the overall strength of the system.

Capture all the progress

by Samantha

Love the immediate progress capture. Sometimes it seems as if you can get a foot or more of progress lost on a tree top with a prussik system. I do prefer the simplicity of a prussik system. That is my opinion, but this thing is sweet.
