The Mammut Alpine Trad Sling is a lightweight, single strand climbing sling made from 100% dyneema, perfect for alpine, ice, Trad and multi-pitch climbing.
Offering faster and safer handling in comparison to traditional slings, the Mammut Alpine Trad Sling can be worn across the chest like a normal round sling, but instead of pulling the sling over your head and arm, you just unclip the carabiner and pull the sling from your body. Using the same quantity of material as a round sling, the single-strand construction has a stitched loop at each end to attach a carabiner, rather than being stitched into a closed ring, allowing intermediate belays to be quickly and easily shortened from 120 to 60 or 30cm.
The single strand construction also reduces the risk of accidental unclipping. The 100% ultra lightweight Dyneema material has the following advantages over normal nylon slings: a higher strength to weight ratio, less water absorption and more abrasion resistant. Weighing only 64g (31g sling & 33g for the carabiner), the Alpine Trad Sling has an 11% weight saving compared to Mammut's lightest round sling the 120cm Contact Sling 8.0. The 120cm length includes the Wall Key Lock bent gate carabiner.
