The Mammut Contact Dyneema Sling is flexible and smooth. This skinny but strong Contact Dyneema Sling is ideal for rock, alpine, and ice. You won't notice an extra sling or four on your harness, but you'll be happy to have the Contact on meandering routes where extended gear decreases rope drag. 8 mm width is smooth, easy to knot and one of the easiest on the market to untie! Useful for extending draws or gear on meandering routes, as rappel anchors, or as a back-up personal anchor Dyneema(R) fibers are lighter, stronger and resist moisture and UV light better than nylon Contact stitching technique ensures even the over stitched seam area handles smoothly Each length is a different color to enable easy visual organization
A 48-inch sling that's designed for the unencumbered climber. The tubular Dyneema webbing measures only 1/3 of an inch in width, yet provides plenty of strength.
Leave those old bulky slings at home! The slim Mammut Contact Sling 8.0 weighs only 14g (60cm length) and has great handling characteristics to make clipping easy. Sling has a narrow 8mm width and a low-profile connection in place of a knot. Dyneema(R), a polyethylene fiber, is incredibly strong, lightweight and resistant to moisture and ultraviolet light. Contact stitching technique gives the sling great handling, even in the area of the seam. Add a couple lightweight carabiners (sold separately) to make your own extendable sling for alpine climbing.
Mammut works hard each year to make its Dyneema Contact Sling lighter without taking away any of its strength. Like most slings, Mammut made it out of super strong and light Dyneema, but unlike most slings, Mammut's Contact stitching technique ensures optimum handling and strength throughout the sling, even in the seam area. This makes it ready to please you whether you're sending sandstone, climbing crack, cranking ice, or alpine climbing your way to the top.
