DMM Alpha light Carabiner
Its I-Beam construction makes this carabiner surprisingly light for how strong it is, and a clean nose covers the wire gate for snag-free unclipping. A deep rope basket keeps the rope oriented in the biner's ideal spot, and a grippy spine helps you clip efficiently and effectively so you can climb on without a worry.

Widely respected in the world of trad climbing, the designers at DMM topped themselves once again when they created the Alpha Wire Carabiner. At just 34 grams and with a minor-axis strength of 7 kN, the Alpha Wire is both ultralight and strong. In typical over-engineering fashion, the folks at DMM ensured that this biner has an open-gate strength rating of 9 kN but also preserved a generous 27 millimetres of gate clearance for easy clipping, cleaning, and racking.
