CAMP COMPETITIVE SKI-MOUNTAINEERING: CHOOSE THE GEAR OF CHAMPIONS AND WIN YOUR CHALLENGES

At the beginning in skimo and mountaineering material, but in recent years also for mountain races.

CAMP’s products epitomise lightness and performance, along the lines of the “light and fast” motto of contemporary alpinism.
CAMP: CHOOSE THE GEAR OF CHAMPIONS AND WIN YOUR CHALLENGES
When we tail about the lightest and most performing skimo race tools, we normally think on CAMP which normally gives what you need: simply the best for any type of competition. CAMP gear is the result of years of experience in this field, working together with giants such as Robert Antonioli, Matteo Eydallin, Davide Magnini and many others. Winning is their credo, as is going faster and faster, and they know that their gear can make or break their results. That’s why the Skimo Race crampon, with its innovative front binding, the Veloce backpack, conceived for Spring and Vertical races, and the G Comp Wind glove, with its protection going well beyond a windproof overmitt, are right up your street.
CAMP Skimo Race: The Skimo Race is a new style of crampon that has been purpose-built for competitive ski mountaineering. Every detail has been optimized for lightweight and speed. The Skimo Race features our new T-Stop toe system combined with a traditional snap on heel bail for fast and secure attachment to the boot. The microadjustable linking bar with large and small range settings delivers a precise fit for all boot lengths. The linking bar can also be replaced with the optional Dyneema® linking strap (sold separately) to reduce weight and allow the crampons to be folded onto themselves for tighter packability. Anti-balling plates and carrying case included. Weight/pair 425 g (no antibott 350 g).
CAMP Veloce: Super light pack for ski mountaineering, specifically designed for Vertical and Sprint race formats. The brilliance of the Veloce can be seen in its simplicity—nothing more and nothing less than what is necessary to facilitate the fastest ascents and speediest transitions. The X-Press Hook Rewind ski carrying system allows for rapid attachment and removal of skis without removing the pack. Soft mesh padding on the back panel and shoulder straps ensure comfort and breathability. A pocket on the left shoulder strap holds a 150 ml Soft Flask at the ready. Weight 195 g.
AMP G Comp Wind: The G Comp Wind is an ideal glove for ski mountaineering races, spring ski tours and cold-weather aerobics. The glove is constructed from soft, dexterous, breathable fabric for great comfort and temperature regulation when on the move. For pre-dawn starts and alpine ridges where the fingers need more protection, simply pull out the hidden Windmit’N. The coated ripstop nylon Windmit’N covers the fingers and thumb while leaving the palm exposed for good grip. Grip’R pads on the palm assist with grip, dexterity and fine motor control, and reinforcements between the thumb and index finger ensure strength and durability. 6 sizes available from S to XXXL. Weight/pair 85 g (L size).
