The DMM Phantom Wiregate Carabiner is lightweight due to its cross sectional design and wire gate. It has a large gate opening of 22mm for easy clipping. The Phantom is not only the lightest carabiner in the world, but DMM has also kept it large enough to be functional and made it super safe with 3 sigma 23kn gate closed and 9kn gate open strenths. The Phantom moves I beam technology to the next level by using a new alloy and a new gate material that shaves off the extra grammes whilst allowing us to maintain strengths.

Each of your carabiners may only weigh a few ounces, but multiply that by your fifty cams and you're carrying a rather rotund child in 'biners alone. The DMM Phantom Carabiner 5 Pack trims the fat to help increase your efficiency for demanding traditional and aid climbing. The Phantom uses DMM's I-Beam technology (the spine resembles a steel I-beam) and a lightweight alloy for strength and weight reduction, and the custom bent wire gate pulls itself into the nose when weighted. A steep basket and a slight rope groove keep the Phantom loaded along the spine. DMM anodized each Phantom in the 5 pack in a different color to match your cams or to add a little rainbow flair.
