CATCH-AND-HOLD

Coming 2022, the TRUBLUE iQ+ is not just a life safety-device — it's a climbing partner. An auto belay like no other, the iQ+ features catch-and-hold technology that allows climbers of all ages and abilities to rest and project routes anytime. Now everyone can experience what it’s like to make it to the top.

FUTURE PROOF

The iQ series was engineered with the future in mind. Designed on an IoT platform, the TRUBLUE iQ+ is the smartest auto belay on the planet. With built-in connectivity, it is ready for future feature releases, from data downloads to service reminders to photo and video capabilities — all straight from your device.

BUILT-IN DURABILITY

Handmade in the USA and designed for heavy use, the iQ series is more durable (and lighter) than ever before. From improved, wider webbing, to a built-in back bumper and replaceable mount guard, the iQ and iQ+ are made to last both indoors and out.

MAGNETIC BRAKING

TRUBLUEs work as reliably as your compass points north. That's because TRUBLUE is the only auto belay that uses friction-free magnetic braking, which ensures a consistently smooth descent for all climbers regardless of weight.

How does catch-and-hold work?

Simply press the "on" button at the bottom of the wall to activate catch-and-hold belay. When you fall, TRUBLUE iQ+ will catch-and-hold you for up to 30 seconds, during which you can continue climbing at any time. Once at the top, press the "off" button to descend safely without pause. If not activated, TRUBLUE iQ+ functions as a normal auto belay.

How does it work

Product Comparison

When developing a new auto belay, we didn’t just want to make it lighter, more durable and improve the climbing experience. Rather, we wanted to take auto belaying to the next level.
