The DMM Alpha Light is an impressive nano carabiner offering excellent handling with minimal weight.
The strength and design features of the now well established Alpha Trad have been utilised but scaled down, to make for an alternative to DMM's other classic micro biner, the Phantom. Whilst slightly heavier than the Phantom, the Alpha Light offers a uniquely sophisticated design providing a larger gate opening, making for easier clipping, as well as a specially designed 'clean nose' and wire gate, to minimise rope snag and unwanted opening of the carabiner. A refined I-Beam spine also provides easier handling, by way of more meaty textured and therefore grippy profile.
Unusually for smaller biners, the DMM Alpha Light is usable with a wide range of sling diameters from 8mm to 16mm.
