Features of The DMM Spectre 2 Carabiner - 5 Pack 9kN gate open strength Shrouded nose for increased security Quickdraws supplied on 11mm dynatec Combination of impressive Specs, beautiful design and incredible versatility

- Moosejaw

Some carabiner manufacturers obsess over light weight, but the resulting product is sized more for a toddler than a climber. The DMM Spectre 2 Carabiner is big enough for winter use but light enough for long trad climbs and difficult sport pitches. DMM's I-Beam construction keeps the weight down yet remains incredibly strong, and the wire gate further reduces weight and sticking. These biners are color coded to match your cams, so you don't grab the wrong piece when your handjam starts to slip.

DMM were the first company to develop and manufacture Ibeam carabiners and it is this experience along with our investment in creating the best aluminium forging plant in Europe that has enabled us to make this biner so light and so versatile. The I beam cross section shape allows for greater loads with lighter construction. 25mm opening for easy rope clipping. The wire gate keeps weight to a minimum, whilst providing an easy clip with minimum chance of it freezing or gunging up. The customised gate is curved to give a constant tension for ease of clipping and increased long-term safety, whilst the tip of the wire is also bent so that it pulls into the nose when under tension to minimise the chance of gate open loading. The nose is also shrouded so that there is a reduced risk of the gate being knocked or dragged open accidently. The Spectre is available in a variety of different colours so that climber can identify items on their rack quickly and easily and all models are fully anodised to help corrosion resistance. Features: a Lightweight I Beam construction back a Safer, deeper basket a Easy to handle back shape a Generous 8.5mm rope radius a Modified nose profile to protect gate Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable.
