A revolutionary belay-descender device with assisted braking that gives you unparalleled safety and control.

  • Gradual camming action reduces the impact force of a fall and decreases wear and tear on the rope
  • Proprietary Anti-Panic system automatically blocks the rope if the user loses control of the descent
  • Double-hinged lever and straight rope path make the descent feel very fluid and controlled
  • Intuitive design eliminates the possibility of clipping a carabiner to the device if it is not completely closed
  • Wide attachment hole allows the carabiner to rotate through the hole
  • High-end manufacturing with hot-forged aluminum main body and precision-cast stainless steel for the critical components that come in contact with the rope
  • For single dynamic ropes from 8.6 to 10.2 mm

The assisted braking action of the Camp Matik Belay Device comes from its innovative camming design that makes the device safer and easier on the climber, the belayer, the anchor and the rope.

Instead of using a blunt angle to pinch the rope abruptly when the cam is engaged, the Matik's cam rotates in and comes in line alongside rope before it captures the rope completely, allowing a much larger contact area between the cam and the rope -  making it more rope-friendly than other auto-blocking devices - and the slight amount of slippage that occurs as the cam rotates into place reduce the impact force of a fall. This means less force on the bodies of the climber and belayer, and on the anchor!

When lowering, the proprietary Anti-Panic system helps prevent you from losing control of the descent. The brake lever will automatically disengage, causing the cam to automatically reengage if it is opened too quickly or if it is kept too far open where the speed of the descent can become unmanageable. This unique safety feature is particularly useful where there is little friction from rope drag between the belayer and the climber, or during topdown descents.

The Matik creates a very natural path for the rope that does not require looping or twisting during descent. Combined with the dynamic camming action that limits the impact of the fall, this more natural rope path helps to reduce wear and tear on the rope.

Other distinguishing features of the Matik include a better method for inserting the rope that eliminates the possibility of clipping a carabiner to the device until it is completely closed.

NOTE: The assisted braking capability of the Matik does not relieve belayers of the need to adhere to the basic principles of belaying and rappelling. It is imperative to be attentive to the climber’s progress and always keep control of the brake line.

Great device

I have been using the Matik for the last couple of months now and am very happy with it. It does the job very well especially with the thin ropes. Perfect for those that use ropes between 8,5 to 10.1mm. I would not recommend it if you use the 10,2 or thicker as it keeps jamming. The anti panic function is very useful especially if you have much heavier partner than you. It's impossible to clip it wrong way so your climbing buddy doesn't have to worry when climbing. I bought it because it's the only device that let you do dynamic belay and it does the job very well. Matik works on the same basis as ATC device so it very easy to learn how to use it even though the description on the packaging is very poor.
I would definitely recommend this product especially to new climbers.
