For climbers who prioritize weight reduction, the Ascent Lite from Wild Country should be top of your shopping list. The HMS carabiner is kept compact, making it considerably lighter than standard sized carabiners, without any compromise in stability. The Ascent Lite is best suited to classic HMS belaying. The design allows knots enough room to spring, whilst the carabiner does not twist in the belay loop.
The carabiners shape, roundness in the knotting area and weight-optimized H profile are all a result of hot-forged technology. A clever little carabiner!
