Petzl Spirit Carabiner - 2013 Model
The Petzl Spirit Carabiner is maybe the oldest and most popular sport climbing carabiner. More than a decade ago, Petzl's innovative keylock design of the gate was the first to eliminate the problem of the notch getting snagged on the bolt hanger when cleaning a steep sport route. The H-shaped profile offers an improved strength/weight ratio and a wider contact surface for better rope glide and reduced wear on the carabiner and, of course, the keylock design keeps it from getting caught on the bolt hanger when cleaning steep routes. The Petzl Spirit Carabiner - 2013 Model is available in two versions: Spirit straight gate: facilitates clipping and un clipping, thanks to the Keylock system and the shape of its nose, and the Spirit bent gate: facilitates clipping the rope, thanks to the string webbing protection it holds the carabiner in position and to the Keylock system.
