Guides and Mountaineering instructors wanted a simple solution to help transfer their knowledge and experience to their clients, simplify systems, and take out confusion at belays. With our small batch, in-house production we were able to provide that solution. We have taken our best loved Shadow, Boa, and Oval biners and colour coded them. Red, Blue, and Green: they sound different even in a wild mountain environment, and they look different even in poor light.
Not only suited to the mountain professionals, climbers of all abilities wanting easy identification will benefit.
The Ultra O Screwgate could be described as the perfect aid climbing biner it certainly performs remarkably well in the big wall environment and the I-Beam construction gives it an excellent strength to weight ratio.
Perhaps multi day ascents, sac hauling, portaledges and extreme dehydration (eek!) are not your bag, but that doesnt mean you should turn your back on the oval biner design, far from it.
At some point all of us will need to use a pulley system, most likely in a rescue situation. Oval biners are important because they allow pulleys to sit in a correctly loaded and equalised position.
The symmetrical shape also stops them shifting under load and potentially dislodging a marginal gear placement. The locking gate adds a final element of security to the system.
