Description

Our energy diffusion system, the FREEXION, allows you to progress with a friction hitch on a single rope, and to move in all directions (up/down/transversal).

It is CE certified and can be used with all EN 1891 ropes (type A) from 11.5 mm to 12.5 mm diameter. Its 3-position adjustment system (hard/medium/soft) allows you to modify the angle of the system. You can also adjust and create more or less friction according to the rope diameter, the climber’s weight, or simply adapt your way in the tree to a given situation.

With a secured opening of the front pin, the FREEXION can be installed in the middle of the rope, for an easy set up. The FREEXION is the first system of the kind that doesn’t need to be taken off the rope or taken apart to change the friction. You can change the friction at any time, in just a few seconds, or reduce the load on the friction hitch: no need for tools, you just press simultaneously both ends of a double button. It’s so practical!

In the tree, you only need to change position of the tether’s pin to change the friction of the FREEXION and modify the braking.

For example : High up in great trees, with a heavy rope weight, you pull the tether to set the selector on the soft position and lessen the friction. Once the rope weight is lighter, a little further down the tree, you can set the position back to medium or hard and increase the braking. You can also climb in the morning with a dry rope in the hard position and in the rain switch to soft position because of slight diameter increase induced by the changing weather conditions.
 

It’s so easy to set up that it’ll soon be natural to modify the braking at will and without constraint.

As a bonus, the FREEXION TETHER has been designed with an extra loop to connect a carabiner and add extra friction for rescue purposes. The shape of the FREEXION has been developed to make it easy to switch from SRT to DRT work. The device can then be used to push your hitch, so there’s no need to disconnect your system.

The system is designed to be very compact, thanks to the short, flexible tether connection. During the ascent, the system is positioned low and close to the body, so the climber has a very upright position and doesn’t need to put his hands very high up. As a result, there’s plenty of room for movement.

The compactness of our FREEXION SYSTEM is also an asset when it comes to large lateral movements, added to the possibility of adjusting friction. It is very easy to switch from SRT to DRT or reduce/increase friction to adapt the system to your work.

FROM Ø 11.5 MM TO Ø 12.5 MM

The FREEXION can be used with EN 1891 Type A ropes from 11.5 mm to 12.5 mm diameter.

EASY OPENING

The FREEXION has a locking pin and can be opened or locked easily anywhere on the rope.

QUICK, TOOL-FREE ADJUSTMENT

Adjustable friction, simple and effective. Press to open, press to adjust!

MATT ANODISATION

Our FREEXION’s matt anodising and laser engraving provide protection from the elements without compromising style.

POLYESTER/DYNEEMA TETHER

The FREEXION TETHER webbing’s materials make it highly resistant, flexible and lightweight.

CE CERTIFIED

FTC TREE has certified the FREEXION as special PPE in accordance with the relevant sections of standard EN 12841.
