About Black Diamond HotWire Carabiner

Black Diamond HotWire Carabiner
The world's first wiregate carabiner for climbers, the Black Diamond HotWire Carabiner just got better. This item started the wiregate revolution. It is one of the most popular because it reduces gate shutter, which is the effect of the gate partially opening during a fall. It has been revamped with an updated 20% lighter hot-forged design, yet it maintains the same easy-to-use size of the original HotWire. Its optimal size-to-weight ratio and flat gate-to-rope interface accommodate your finger and can work very well with gloves. The nose angle that is opened slightly improves the ease of clipping. In addition, this offers impressive strength when bending rather than breaking to absorb cross-loading. It has resistance to freezing up in alpine conditions, ensuring its continued popularity even on wet or icy ropes. The large rope-bearing surface helps you build anchors and manage multiple lines with no difficulty. This remains a solid, most robust and popular carabiner available at a good price.
