DMM Alpha Light Quickdraw

Ultra light Alpha Light carabiners with a 11mm wide dyneema come together to form a lightweight draw that doesn't sacrifice strength for weight
’s not easy improving on a super lightweight biner like the Phantom - DMM pulled it off when they designed the Alpha Light.

They wanted all the weight advantages of the Phantom, but with better handling and a bigger gate opening.  They created the kinked the backbone to increase the gate opening and put a grooved pattern on the outside of the biner under the natural holding positions.

The functionality improvements did not end there though – a clean nose design was also added to reduce snagging when clipping or unclipping.
