Innovation in carabiner design – this funky biner features both a wire gate and a notchless nose. It is also extremely light for a full-size biner thanks to hot forged, I-beam, ribbed construction.

* Wire gate can be used as top or bottom biner.
* Strength of 25kN with closed gate, 10kN with open gate, 8kN if cross-loaded.
* Gate opening of 2.7cm.
* Hooded nose protects the wire gate from rubbing open.
* Locating pip keeps slings close to the spine. (We recommend narrow gauge Spectra® slings for the biner's narrow neck).
* Three Sigma tested.
* CE certified.

Phenomenal little helper; the best carabiner I own! In an attempt to shave a couple of pounds off my trad rack, I replaced all my regular biners and draws with WC Heliums and WC Dyneema runners. I never looked back! These carabiners combine a very light weight, an excellent feel in your hand and a relatively wide gate opening.
