Versatile, durable and affordable, the Quicksilver's angled nose for easier clipping, and silky-smooth gate action have made it a Black Diamond classic. It's available with a straight or a bent gate. A straight gate biner with a keylock nose like the Positron or Dynotron reduces the risk of the carabiner nose snagging on bolts or protection making for difficult clipping and unclipping. Because the smooth features of keylock gates don't get caught on hangers, protection or slings, they are an excellent choice for steeper sport climbs as well as traditional climbs. Because biners and quickdraws are essential tools for climbers, they need to deliver pure function. You don't want to be fumbling around on the crux clip looking at a day-wrecking fall. Black Diamond strive's to make the best biners and draws imaginable, with design, manufacturing and quality control all under one roof in Utah. From HotWire, the biner that started the wiregate revolution, to the Dynotron, Black Diamond manufacture's biners and draws that enhance-and don't disrupt-the fluid movements of climbing. As always, all Black Diamond carabiners are individually tested to half their rated strength before leaving the factory.
