The new generation Petzl ANGE S carabiner represents the middle ground between the traditional gate carabiner and the classic wire gate carabiner. It combines the fluidity of the spring gate with the lightness of the wire gate system. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile make the ANGE S carabiner weigh an ultra-light 28 grams and provide an optimal weight/strength ratio. So it is particularly suitable for users looking to reduce their weight to a minimum. The shape of the nose is designed to optimize clipping and unclipping.
The ANGE S carabiner is ultra-light and compact, making it ideal for mountaineering and multi-pitch climbing where weight reduction is key. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock ensures smoother opening and closing of the carabiner and a much longer lifetime compared to traditional wire gate carabiners and the wire gate is protected from lateral rubbing (against rock, etc). The surfaces that come in contact with the rope and with the anchor are wider, favoring passage of the rope and reducing carabiner wear and 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.
