The new generation Petzl ANGE L is a super lightweight yet functional carabiner perfect for alpine conditions or fast and light ascents.
Representing the middle ground between the traditional gate carabiner and the classic wire gate carabiner, and particularly suited to those looking to reduce weight whilst keeping the functionality of a standard size carabiner, the ANGE L successfully fuses together the fluidity of the spring gate with the lightness of the wire gate system.
The H-profile technology gives the ANGE L carabiner an optimal weight-to-strength ratio and the shape of the nose optimises clipping/unclipping and reduces snagging. This is a super lightweight yet functional carabiner and although the MonoFil wire may look a bit odd, there is no reason to treat it any different than any other.
Petzl's MonoFil Keylock ensures smoother opening and closing of the carabiner and a much longer lifetime compared to traditional wire gate carabiners.
The wire gate is protected from lateral rubbing (against rock, etc).
The unique H-profile allows an optimal size and strength-to-weight ratio.
The indent on the bottom of the ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners helps keep the STRING in place so that the sling is properly positioned on the carabiner.
The surfaces that come in contact with the rope and with the anchor are wider, favouring passage of the rope and reducing carabiner wear.
The nose of the carabiner has a hole that allows ice, snow or dirt to be cleared out.
The deflector works with the shape of the carabiner to allow proper positioning of the carabiner on its major axis.
