Abstract

The purpose of the Carbon Ascensus project is to create an ultra-light, high performance tree climbing stick. Hunters will be able to hike further and climb higher with this product. The design is simple to use and incorporates high performance materials well suited for the high -performance hunter. The Carbon Ascensus achieves this by being constructed of 70% composite materials by weight. This makes the design stronger and lighter, with features never before seen in a tree climbing stick. The steps are constructed from carbon fiber using an epoxy system along with PVC core and the shaft is made with several layers of carbon fiber braid and epoxy resin. The only metallic parts are the three fasteners and bolts and the aluminum standoffs. Testing will confirm the mechanical properties of the part meet the requirements of the Treestand Manufacturing Standard.
