Features of the Camp USA Photon wire Gate Carabiner Rack Pack Still the lightest full-size carabiner in the world 6 colors coordinate with the most popular cam colors Optimized new body design increases rigidity and strength without increasing weight Redesigned interface between the gate and nose helps to protect the wire gate from damage and accidental opening The Photon wire is perfect for climbers who want a racking biner that is lightweight and low-profile but still clips with the ease of a High-end quickdraw Well-suited for difficult trad leads or alpine mixed routes and ice Climbing
You want a lighter rack for alpine approaches, but most climbing companies assume you mean you want a smaller rack. Camp USA understands, which is why the Photon Carabiner is a lighter full-size carabiner for all your climbing needs. Optimized with a phenomenal strength-to-weight ratio, the Photon keeps the weight down without inhibiting the carabiner's overall strength. It features Camp USA's new SphereLock nose to reduce clutter between the gate and nose.
C.A.M.P. Carabiners Photon Carabiner-Straight Gate 2467. A.M.P.'s Photon carabiner marks an evolutionary advance in carabiner design. Not only is it the lightest it is also full-size Its radical design creates a large gate opening for easy clipping and the keylock closure is great for plucking draws from gear loops and cleaning overhanging sport routes. The Photon Bent Gate is the ultimate rope-end carabiner for overhanging sport routes. Its aggressive design is optimized for quick clips and the keylocking closure and large gate opening make for cuss-free cleaning.
The Photon Wire remains one of the lightest carabiners in the world and is still significantly larger than other carabiners in its class. The new generation features an updated body design that increases strength and rigidity to handle the odd stresses that climbers put on their gear. We have also redesigned the interface between the gate and nose to help protect the wire gate from damage or accidental opening. Available in eight colors for individually racking cams - team the sling color with the coordinating biner color for the fastest way to identify the right cam size on the sharp end and reorganize the rack at belays. The Photon Wire is perfect for climbers who want a racking biner that is lightweight and low-profile but still clips with the ease of a high-end quickdraw. It is particularly well-suited for difficult trad leads or alpine mixed routes and ice climbing where a full-size carabiner is much easier to operate while wearing gloves.
