The original lightweight biner stays in DMM's range by popular demand. Hot forged from 7000 series alloy the Prowire headed up the DMM range only a few years ago. The 36g weight was revolutionary at the time for a full size carabiner and even now the Prowire is a lot lighter than most of the competition.
The custom wire gate is curved to give a constant tension for ease of clipping and increased long-term safety. The tip of the wire is also bent so that it pulls into the nose when loaded in order to minimise the chance of the biner being loaded in the gate open position.
The nose is shrouded to minimise the chance of the gate being opened accidentally and the biner incorporates a rope groove so that loads are pulled into the spine of the biner.
