The Black Diamond MiniWire carabiner is perfect for the alpinist or trad climber where every gram matters. For the long approaches and long routes it's the go-to.
Black Diamond's goal with the MiniWire was to make a small and lightweight carabiner, so this is probably not going to be your sport climbing carabiner due to it's small profile. Weighing only 23 grams, which is 5g lighter than the previous BD Oz, this biner is perfect for those big walk ins where you need to conserve energy in every place possible for the long route up ahead.
Ideal to rack cams with for easy identification due to Black Diamond's colour system. They've really gone to town with new colours this year, black wires "Just because they look cool" with some trendy additions like Pink and Mint to spice up your rack.
Based upon the BD Hotwire which first came to the market in 1997, the Miniwire features the hot-forged construction which allows Black Diamond to remove weight where it’s not needed and add material where durability is key.
