DMM Alpha light Quickdraw 18cm Titanium/grey
It’s not easy improving on a super lightweight biner like the DMM Phantom, but that was DMM's goal when they started to design the Alpha Light.
DMM wanted to keep all the weight advantages of the Phantom, but with better handling and a bigger gate opening. So they 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.
