DMM have raised the bar on oval carabiners with their new Ultra O range.
The bodies are hot forged with I Beam panels and the result is a super strong keylock carabiner with a major axis strength of 25kN and a minor axis strength of 12kN.
A lot of people will see this as the ultimate carabiner for rigging pulley systems and it has been designed to work perfectly with the Hitch Climber Pulley that is rapidly gaining popularity with arborists. It is also a really good belay carabiner with a wide 9.75mm rope radius that is kind to ropes - the beauty is it does not matter if the carabiner inverts in your belay loop, plus it has a really high cross loading strength.
