The DMM Alpha Sport Quickdraw 18cm is an incredible sport specific, all-round burley climbing quickdraw.
The Alpha Sport is a complete re-design of the sports draw, it comes with clean nosed gates and small indentations on the rear of the biner to aid grip when clipping. The tape is now a suitably wide 26mm, so plenty to grab hold of should the need arise. The rope end of the draw has a slightly bent gate to aid clipping of the rope in those 'critical' moments along with a reassuringly deep rope basket.
The Alpha Sport draw combines two state-of-the-art Alpha Pro and Clip biners:
Alpha Pro This set up is very sophisticated. The Alpha Pro is designed to make clipping the bolt wire, peg etc. as secure, quick and easy as possible. It is strong, easy to handle and light. As with the other Alpha biners it has moved the I Beam design forward another level, and will be the template for future carabiner design.
Alpha Clip Just as the Pro version makes clipping the bolt easy, the Alpha Clip ensures that you won’t waste any time clipping the rope either. A beautifully Hot Forged gate blends perfectly with the biner back to make clipping a dream. The depth of the basket is deeper offering greater security once clipped. A variable width 26 mm nylon draw is the perfect partner for these biners, easy to grab, robust and tapered down to 16 mm where it sits securely on the biner, ensuring correct loading of the set up.
