This low-profile, lightweight 'biner is perfect for the aid climber looking for a strong, inexpensive high-tech oval. Simple design is actually stronger than gated biners in cross-loading or edge-loading situations--steel wire bends and stretches instead of breaking. Slender wire gate occupies less working space, leaving more room for fingers and rope. Cold-forged aluminum alloy for exceptional strength-to-weight ratio.
