Engineered as a wiregate trad climbing machine, the LiteWire is a small workhorse carabiner.
DescriptionThe Carabiner is featuring a hot-forged construction—allowing Black Diamond to remove weight where it’s not needed and add material where durability is key—and a hinge-basket that holds the sling of a Camalot adds durability not only for the carabiner, but for your rope as well, plus we’ve optimized the nose geometry to allow for efficient clipping, making the LiteWire an ultra-durable wiregate just waiting to be racked.
- Durable workhorse ideal for trad climbing
- Hot-Forged for lighter-weight construction
- Larger rope-bearing surface for added durability
- Nose geometry allows for efficient clipping/unclipping
2020 Black Diamond Carabiners
These are a nice size for setting up an easy handling Alpine draw. At 24Kn, these are 4Kn stronger than the MiniWire. I prefer 1 silver to distinguish a bolt end for sport routes (BD uses black). The variety of colors allows me to add style on the rope end 😸 Color would be best used to help organize when used on pro.
