The award winning carabiner with Twin-Gate system.
The first and only carabiner awarded with the "Compasso d’oro" for design.
The pear shape allows you to have the necessary space for the rope to run, for the insertion of the clove hitch and in some cases for the insertion of several of them.
Opening by means of the Twin-Gate system with double gate, which does not require any additional operation (e.g. screwing), making it safer and faster than other systems. Furthermore, it allows to avoid accidental openings that can occur for example due to contact with the rock, due to incorrect passage of the rope due to involuntary hand pressure. Two levers also allow greater resistance than one. Finally, it maintains its functionality over time and does not fear the presence of dust, earth, ice like other systems.
Modified levers that allow you to easily attach all types of devices (brakes). Individually tested, with the date of testing and progressive number laser-marked on it.
