Product Description

For thin ice, small gear, or places where protection is questionable at best, clip into the Mammut Dyneema Shock Absorber. This quick-draw-style runner features an exterior coating that holds a folded over runner. When fall force exceeds 2.5 kN, the tiny seams holding the runner together tear, lengthening the runner to full size and reducing fall factor by 30%. With a sketchy piece of gear or a screw in unstable ice, 30% could mean the difference between a whipper and a body bag.


Material: Dyneema Strength: [Stitching] 2.5kN (562lbf); [Runner] 22kN (4946lbf) Length: 15cm (6in) Recommended Use: Ice climbing
