Carabiners - DMM Shadow Bent Gate
The bent gate version of the classic sport climbing biner, the Shadow, forms the rope clipping end of the quickdraw. The inside of the biner has a deep basket to ensure that the rope is guided towards the spine for added safety. This is a truly excellent biner with I-Beam construction, and a superb combination of function, weight and strength.
The Shadow also incorporates a new keylock nose to avoid the biner snagging on the bolts, or the rope. This is particulally useful when stripping steep routes or when the biner is used for racking gear. DMM have manufactured this series of biners from a new alloy which when combined with their I-beam hot-forging technology gives even greater strength - the Shadow features a massive 10kn gate open strength.
Also new for 2013, DMM have added the popular forged bent gate from the Alpha Clip to the design; this significantly improves the clipping performance of the biner. We have also introduced a stylish purple colour scheme to the anodising.
