Omega Pacific continues to lead the way in carabiner design with the brand-new Zn-37 (a.k.a. Doval)! This revolutionary carabiner introduces an entirely new 'biner category that bridges the gap between rad and trad, sport and alpine. Completely in its element on alpine & traditional climbs, the Doval can be stacked, reversed, used in Garda knots (aka Alpine Clutch) and for carabiner brake rappels. It is so light that you can trim-pay close attention here-over a pound and a half from a typical alpine rack by using Dovals! And with it's huge gate opening and wide rope radius, it's equally at home working those hardsport routes! Light, strong, small and completely versatile, the Doval is the only general-purpose, non locking carabiner you'll ever want to use! Weight: 37 grams Strength: 25kN
