New D4 Trapezium Portaledge Good for Working Projects

Big Wall Gear, LLC has announced the new multi-purpose D4 Trapezium, a whole new paradigm in foldable platform technology built for climbers.

The D4 Trapezium is light and fits into a daypack and has already opened new vistas for adventure, uses include ultra-light big-wall solo climbing storm shelter, BASE jumping platform, stealth tree-activist perch and instant tree-cubbie for kids on family camping trips.

It could also be used for projecting big-wall style free climbs, from The Chief and Yamnuska to Cap Trinite.

The D4 Trapezium is the first of its kind, the “1.5 ledge” inspired from input by climbers and BASE jumpers such as Rob Miller, Regan Raganowicz, Ivo Ninov, Joshua G., Robbie Brown and Andy Kirkpatrick.

D4’s new patent-pending 8-piece, hybrid-diameter, curved-corner, Bullet FrameTM is the most compact folding, largest deploying, lightest and strongest folding platform ever designed, and virtually self-assembles thanks to the exclusive D4 Bullet JoinersTM.

The D4 Trapezium joins the line of D4 branded equipment, including the D4 full-size Portaledge manufactured by Durango Sewing Solutions and the D4 MiniMe, available soon from Tufa Climbing.
