Made using high-quality aluminum, the lightweight SMC Swiftwater pulley features side plates precisely tensioned for easy one-handed operation and secure placement at any point along the rope.


  • Anodized side plates feature a series of holes that help minimize the hydroplaning effect that might otherwise occur with other pulleys
  • Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency, thus reducing the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple-component systems
  • These are also not prone to failure under misaligned loads or with twisted gear as may occur when using pulleys made with needle bearings
  • The wide and flat base maximizes the effectiveness of a Prusik hitch while a unique side plate formation allows the use of larger ropes in a compact pulley
  • The top hole accepts 2 large rescue carabiners or multiple small carabiners, and allows the carabiners to be rotated freely and completely even while closed
  • 3-Sigma MBS (minimum breaking strength): 7,644 lbf (34 kN)
  • Certified to meet UIAA127 / EN12278

Made in USA.
