#1 AUTO BELAY IN THE WORLD

Protecting over 1 billion climbs across 60 countries and 6 continents every year, TRUBLUE is the #1 Auto Belay in the world. No other brand even comes close.

EMPOWERING EPIC CLIMBS

Grow your climbing community by providing more access to more routes for more climbers. From 5.0 to 5.15, everyone deserves the opportunity to climb. TRUBLUE makes climbing simple and approachable, turning first-time users into return customers and lifelong members. TRUBLUE Auto Belays are engineered to minimize maintenance and are built to last. The difference is our patented magnetic braking system, which delivers the smoothest user experience, the highest level of reliability (even with high cycle counts), and dramatically reduces device downtime.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

The best auto belay in the world just got better. TRUBLUE iQ and iQ+ are the next standard in auto belays, with built-in durability, smart climb technology, and the magnetic braking that climbers trust. Best of all, TRUBLUE iQ+ features catch-and-hold technology, giving climbers the rest they need to finish their favorite routes.

Magnetic Braking

TRUBLUE is the only auto belay on the market to use magnetic braking.

Unmatched Reliability

Unlike brake pads or hydraulics, TRUBLUEs work as dependably as your compass points north thanks to our patented friction-free magnetic braking technology, ensuring a soft catch every time.

Catch-and-Hold Mode

TRUBLUE iQ+ is the first and only auto belay with Catch-and-Hold technology.

An Auto Belay Like No Other

TRUBLUE iQ+ features a Catch-and-Hold Mode, giving climbers the rest they need to finish routes. Now everyone can make it to the top.

Durable construction

TRUBLUE Auto Belays are handmade in the USA and designed for heavy use, both indoors and out.

Made to Last

From improved, wider webbing, to a built-in back bumper and replaceable mount guard, the iQ series is more durable (and lighter) than ever before.

Low Maintenance

TRUBLUE's patented magnetic braking reduces wear on internal parts.

More Sends, Less Service

Our patented magnetic braking system means there are no pads or contacting parts required for braking, resulting in fewer components with the potential to wear out or fail.

Best Climber Experience

Unassisted ascent for an authentic climbing feel.

Designed for Climbers

Rather than pulling climbers up the wall, our devices offer an unassisted ascent, truer to the quintessential climbing experience.

Certified to the Max

Third-party tested to meet the most rigorous industry requirements.

Engineered for safety

TRUBLUE is engineered to the highest international safety standards, including 10x Class A and Shock Load certification.

How does catch-and-hold work?

Simply press the "on" button at the bottom of the wall to activate Catch-and-Hold Mode. 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.
