- Carabiner rockD BiWire
The rockD is the carabiner of choice when seeking the highest strength in a standard-sized aluminum frame. Available in the ORCA, Auto-lock, Screw-lock and other gate options, the rockD carabiner serves the broadest range of specialized uses. The rockD in non-lanyard versions, features a flattened profile with an i-beam profile at the bottom and top bends, giving the carabiner a sleek profile, while providing low weight and high strength characteristics.
High strength-to-weight ratio in standard size carabiner
Snag-resistant keylock nose design
Large and ergonomic angled gate opening
Machined frame ensures tight tolerances and smooth operation
The BiWire was developed originally as a more secure alternative to a non-locking, or standard wiregate carabiner. In some cases, a carabiner can be opened by a loop in the rope, or gate coming in contact with another object. The patented double-gate design helps prevent accidental gate openings. To open the BiWire, the user must simultaneously push the outer gate and inward gate.
Screwlock or autolock carabiners can become inoperable due to ice, sand or other debris. The BiWire design does not utilize a mechanism to lock, and is therefore more resistant to natural contaminants and debris. This is advantageous when used in harsh environments by mountaineers or canyoneers.
Offers more security than a single wire gate
