The Spectre 2 from DMM is the perfect option if you prefer the handling qualities of a larger biner. It's certainly big enough to work well if you are wearing winter gloves. Lighter than and featuring a deeper "rope basket" than the original Spectre.
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
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.
Has your rack been weighing you down Replace those old bulky biners with new ultra-light DMM Spectre carabiners and shed the excess weight.
