The Dragon Cam is a patented twin axle, single stem camming device that is the perfect mainstream cam for traditional climbing. DMM Dragons have been designed to produce a blend of strength, lightness and functionality.
DMM uses a single stem with hot-forged cams mounted on a dual axle. Strong springs mean the units feel slightly harder to retract. But the advantages are worth it: They will sit more securely in placements, have improved resistance to being pulled out of low-friction placements, and walk less. The patented thumb termination uses aluminum forging that is strong, resistant to abuse and lets the climber use an extendable sling.
The stem is made of a 5.5-millimeter stainless steel wire cover in a hydrolised nylon sleeve. The nylon sleeve rotates freely to reduce abrasion damage and gives the units really good flexibility throughout 360°.
In addition, DMM used very short terminations that increase flexibility. Thus, when the cams are placed in shallow vertical or horizontal cracks, they are less likely to be levered out of the placement. The trigger bar is made from the same material and is positive in use with sufficient relief to offer grip to the sweatiest of fingers.
