• lightened and shaped form for improved ease of holding;
• catch-free closure to avoid accidental tangling during use;
• available with or without ACL system, which allows attachment to the harness’s belay loop, preventing cross loading

Additional Information

There are 3 ways manufactures typically measure carabiner strength. Major axis strength, gate open strength, and minor axis strength. Major axis is along the spine, like I described above. Gate open means loaded from two points (the elbows) while the gate is literally open. Minor axis is when the carabiner’s load is pulling on the long sides of the carabiner. This means the gate is under force, making it the weakest configuration to use on a carabiner.

All Climbing Technology carabiners are individually tested at 12 KN.

Each carabiner has its own breaking load, for example, the breaking load/carabiner strength of Nimble EVO SG Carabiner is engraved on the carabiner:
