The bent gate version of the classic sport climbing biner, the Shadow, forms the rope clipping end of the quickdraw.
The inside of the biner has a deep basket to ensure that the rope is guided towards the spine for added safety.
This is a truly excellent biner with I-Beam construction, and a superb combination of function, weight and strength.
It is available either on its own or as part of the Shadow Quickdraw.
New for 2013: We have added the popular forged bent gate from the Alpha Clip to the design; this significantly improves the clipping performance of the biner. We have also introduced a stylish purple colour scheme to the anodising. The Shadow Quickdraw comes with a neat, injection-moulded keeper at the rope end biner. Aside from protecting the webbing from abrasion, this keeps the biner locked down and correctly aligned, ensuring easy clipping and optimum loading.
