The OvalWire Carabiner by Black Diamond is a lightweight oval carabiner with a wire gate and thinner-profile body. Weighs 17 grams less than the traditional Oval. Wiregate resists gate whiplash and icing in alpine conditions.
Black Diamond Oval Wire Carabiner.
The Black Diamond Oval Wire Carabiner is a sleek, useful, must-have addition to your climbing rack. This carabiner comes with the same symmetrical design as the traditional Oval, but improved with its sleek body. The wire gate is great for cold weather climbing conditions, as it resists whiplash and freezing temperatures. With an open gate strength of 7 kN and a closed gate strength of 23 kN, the carabiner is built for heavy loads and is much stronger than traditional ones. A wide gate opening of 1 inch gives room for a large number of nuts and pins to be accommodated. So make sure you have a Black Diamond Oval Wire Carabiner included, as part of your climbing gear.

Classic designs evolve and thats why our tried and true Oval is also offered in a wiregate version. The OvalWire is lighter and thinner while still providing the same no shift benefit of the Oval. On those A4 hookfests the lightweight OvalWire sits still and offers better protection. Climbers will find this biner excellent for modern-aid testpieces, big-wall free climbs, racking pro and as an all-around biner.

Does everything you need it to, except be perfectly oval-shaped. I got a few of these because I don't like running non-loadworthy gear on my harness and needed some extra gear clips and something to hold my chalk bag. It's a little awkward for the chalk due to the shape, but it ultimately works. Other than that: super light and no issues. Love the wire gate.
these are great biners i love them for racking stoppers and other bulk gear, i also love these for throwing a sling in there and making some alpine draws. they are light, cheap, sexy and the wire gates wont freeze up on you. just buy ten and have them handy!
these things are great. super simple and easy to use. i use these to rack my nuts and a few other pieces. they're nice and light and seem pretty durable. i haven't used them long but the gates seem smooth as ever.
lightweight, cheap, strong, and a nice wide opening. What more do you want? rack it up!
if you want to get picky, complain about the lack of keynose- and then take out a 2nd mortgage to rack with those
This biner is great for racking extra stoppers and hexes on those long multi-pitch routes when you want to prevent long run-outs. Lightweight and able to carry a lot of stoppers.
Simple, strong, light, quality, cheap. I have nothing bad to say about this carabiner. It has many uses from anchors to just racking up gear.
Go out and get one, or ten!
