The shift in lightness in climbing gear standards has been made possible by radical products such as the DMM Phantom Screwgate Carabiner. This is a super light locking biner, making it the ultimate trad and alpine climbing Screwgate. Lighten up your rack with a few of these beauties and you will really start to feel the difference.
DMM Phantom Screwgate Carabiner Feature:
- Personal locking carabiner: Personal lockers are used where weight and size are as important as strength, such as on sling runners and for most connection points on belay stances. In a standard 2 person climbing team, most of your locking carabiners will be personal lockers.
- Offset D carabiner for optimal loading and ergonomics
- This carabiner's nose slots into a groove in the gate, allowing it to achieve full strength without a gate notch. This creates a clean internal profile that won't catch on gear, bolts or slings, giving easier clipping and removal from systems.
