Peztl is making a smaller version of the Mini Traxion. $95, available in spring 2012. Karst Worlds reports. Another report.


Here's short video of the cam in action.

A slightly longer video demo.

Just got a chance to play with one of these at NCKMS. They are pretty sweet. The Petzl rep said they have sealed ball bearings so they are more efficient than the Mini-Traxion and thus the increased cost as well.
