The Alpha Sport is a highly ergonomic carabiner that gives easy and intuitive handling. Grooves in the spine add extra grip when stretching for a crucial clip. A solid gate is easier to handle when pumped, increasing your chance of clipping the bolt.
More metal in areas of high wear help resist the wear and tear of modern sport climbing. Bolt hangers can damage carabiners, and strengthening the Alpha's contact areas helps reduce this.
A keylock nose creates a clean internal profile that resists snagging, and reduces the chance of the carabiner hanging up on bolts. The clean nose also makes stripping a steep route easier, something you'll be thankful for at the end of a tough redpoint session.
Ergonomic, strong, and secure, the Alpha Sport is the ideal carabiner at the bolt end of a sport quickdraw.
The curved gate guides ropes into the carabiner, where the Alpha’s deep rope baskets seat them securely.
Areas of high wear feature more metal to withstand the demands of sport climbing. This gives the Alpha Clip increased rope bearing radii, resulting in softer catches and reduced wear on ropes.
