The DMM Alpha Carabiner is light, strong, and ready to clip your rope so you can continue your climbing adventures. Its I-beam construction cuts unnecessary weight without decreasing the Alpha's overall strength, and a deep secure rope basket ensures excellent handling and easy clipping. The hot forged bent gate also assists with quick clipping, and the clean nose makes sure the carabiner doesn't clip the rope when your second is cleaning the route. DMM also added grooves at the back to give you a better grip when you're clipping.
When we designed the Alpha Clip we were determined to produce the most clip friendly biner ever made. The bent gate, with its flared-out barrel shape works in perfect harmony with the kinked and groove-patterned back bar. It just feels so right, handles so well, and most importantly the rope always goes in first time. Try it out and you'll see what we mean.
