We love the OCUN Kestrel karabiner for traditional climbing and Alpine climbing where limiting weight is essential. It is also light enough and compact enough that you can use it as a racking karabiner, firm in the knowledge that it is fully rated and therefore can be used as a backup if you run out of quickdraws.
Kestrel is an ultralight minicarabiner suitable for equipping routes. Its optimized profile, calculated by Ocún developers, doesn´t lose solidity despite its very low weight. Wire gate eliminates gate flutter and does not freeze up in alpine conditions.
Super lightweight (25g) wire gate carabiner that feels gorgeous and is perfect for trad and Alpine climbing.

The Black Diamond Oval Keylock is the iconic, symmetrical Oval has stood the test of time, and will now remain essential to your rack due to the new Keylock snag-free design. With its large rope-bearing surface, improved ease of use, and smooth uniform shape that reduces carabiner shift, the Oval will continue to get the job done on the world’s hardest big walls.
The DMM Ultra O Screwgate is an extremely symmetrical oval climbing carabiner, ideal for use with assisted belay devices, pulleys, swivels and shackles. Some oval carabiners are not as symmetrical as others, making them less useful for their designed purpose. The DMM Ultra O Coloured 3-Pack includes three different colours of the Ultra O screwgate carabiners.
The Edelrid Kiwi Slider is a light and compact oval shaped locking karabiner. The oval shape optimally distributes the load on the longitudinal axis and offers a large capacity. The ideal karabiner for clearly organized gear.
The OCUN Osprey Screw Karabiner is a hot-forged carabiner of classic oval shape suitable for technical and big wall climbing. It's invaluable on working with pulleys. The utility value of this carabiner is increased by Ocún’s typical rope friendly shape of the upper profile, which makes the Osprey usable for HMS belaying in case of an emergency. If climbers owned just one carabiner, it should be the Osprey.
The DMM Captive Eye ensures that in real life situations the connector will never be cross loaded through misalignment. Whatever the captive eye is stitched or connected to it can move freely thanks to the circular hole. The hole can also accommodate a second connector should the need for a rescue point arise.
The DMM Phantom is their ultimate trad and alpine screwgate Karabiner, and when you hold those 42 grams you will understand why! They claim they could have made it even lighter, but did not want to compromise the handling or strength. As you can see from the specification below the strength is still impressive and the gate opening reasonable for a small D shaped biner.
DMM have taken their best loved Shadow karabiners and coloured them in! This is to reduce confusion on the rock and simplify systems, plus it adds some razzle dazzle to your rack! Each karabiner looks very different, even in poor lighting - making it easier to distinguish what is what. These are suited for climbers of all abilities, who want easy identification of kit.
The DMM Revolver Rig is a connector with an integrated pulley sheave. Featuring a high efficiency roller bearing sheave(s), a threaded removable captive bar and a full strength textile friendly becket. The uniquely profiled spine and captive bar aid in maintaining correct orientation. The design of the Revolver Rig is such that when using a connector attached to the becket, any friction between the connector and rope is minimised.
