DMM Carabiners Phantom Carabiner 5 Color Pack A318P5. Weighing in at a meagre 26g DMM has managed to keep it both large enough to be functional and super safe with a 9kN gate open strength. All the standard DMM characteristics are present in the Phantom - a customised wire gate that pulls into the nose under load a rope groove a fully anodised finish and the 'even tension' gate. The Phantom takes I-Beam hot forging technology to the next level by using a new stronger 7000 series alloy and a bespoke wire on the gate that shaves off the extra grams still maintaining ergonomics and strength. The Phantom 5 pack contains red blue green gold and purple carabiners allowing climbers to color code their cams and other equipment for easy recognition.
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.
