The DMM classic Aero carabiner includes a keylock nose to make clipping and unclipping even easier. This is a brilliant sports climbing biner that is strong enough to survive hard use it also and beautifully.
The DMM Aero is a high quality, hot-forged solid gate carabiner with a strong 9kN gate open strength for extra safety. It is great for all round use with a relatively wide gate opening. It features a shrouded nose to protect the gate from accidentally opening and a rope groove to help direct any loads against the spine.
This bent gate version is designed for the rope end of the quickdraw. The gate itself contains a deep bend that rolls into the nose to make clipping very easy - at the same time the gate/nose intersection has been carefully designed so that the chances of the rope unclipping itself are minimised. We also use a relatively strong spring pressure both to reduce the chances of gate flutter happening and also to reduce the chances of the rope unclipping itself when backclipped.
We have also taken great care to curve the body into the gate so that there is minimal chance of anything hanging up at the gate/body intersection. This makes the chance of the carabiner being loaded away from the spine much smaller and thus helps create a safer carabiner.
The Aero is completely anodised which helps to combat corrosion and prolong life in a variety of enviroments.
