Light carabiner with MonoFil Keylock system The new generation ANGE L carabiner represents the middle ground between the traditional gate carabiner and the classic wire gate carabiner. It combines the fluidity of the spring gate with the lightness of the wire gate system. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile give the ANGE L carabiner a light weight of 34 grams and an optimal weight-to-strength ratio. So it is particularly suited to users looking to reduce weight while keeping the functionality of a standard size carabiner. The large 26 mm opening and the shape of the nose are designed to optimize clipping and unclipping. The ANGE L carabiner is light (34 g): it is ideal for reducing weight when climbing. It is also useful in alpine conditions for those looking to maintain comfort and maximum strength while limiting their weight to a strict minimum Petzl's MonoFil Keylock ensures smoother opening and closing of the carabiner and a much longer lifetime compared to traditional wire gate carabiners. The wire gate is protected from lateral rubbing against rock The unique H-profile allows an optimal size and strength-to-weight ratio The indent on the bottom of the carabiner helps keep the STRING in place so that the sling is properly positioned on the carabiner The surfaces that come in contact with the rope and with the anchor are wider, for better rope glide and reduced carabiner wear The nose of the carabiner has a hole that allows ice, snow or dirt to be cleared out The deflector works with the shape of the carabiner to promote proper positioning of the carabiner on its major axis Available in: blue

The Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot is King of the Mountain in the Scarpa freeride line. It's the burliest, with a 120 flex index, but almost a pound lighter than the standard Freedom. The SL also uses a lighter Intuition liner and more aggressive sole. Compared to Scarpa's touring boots, the Freedom SL is more versatile (added alpine capability) and it's stiffer and more powerful, but it does weigh more than the cream-of-the-crop AT. It has a Ride Power Block that delivers frictionless motion for efficient climbing and locks in back support for superpower transmission on the downhill. For skiers who need a boot that can charge off the lift in alpine bindings or slip efficiently into the backcountry with Tech (TLT) bindings, the Freedom SL has few equals. And then there's the fit. The Pbax Rnew shell overlaps for gap-less fit. Its Carbon Core technology wraps it around a bomber carbon frame for lightweight and allover stiffness for precision control. The Intuition FR Speed liner boot is molded with the shell for a seamless fit and optimally powerful performance, key in making the distinction between a competent alpine/AT boot and one that kills it. The 101-millimeter anatomic last features Axial Power Control for lateral stiffness and sensitivity. The interchangeable Vibram sole gives you lugged tenacity when hiking over scree or down-climbing into a rocky chute. You'll feel the advantage in an instant and respond with a peaceful mind. After all, you don't want to charge down a finger chute with already-frayed nerves. This is called Freedom.
