Dmm Alpha Wire Carabiner -
Widely respected in the world of trad climbing, the designers at DMM topped themselves once again when they created the Alpha Wire Carabiner. At just 34 grams and with a minor-axis strength of 24 kN, the Alpha Wire is both ultralight and strong. In typical over-engineering fashion, the folks at DMM ensured that this biner has an open-gate strength rating of 9kN but also preserved a generous 27 millimeters of gate clearance for easy clipping, cleaning, and racking.

Positive Reviews:

I am A HUGE DMM fanboy, and will normally pay just about anything for their stuff. However, these are perhaps a little too pricy. Yes they clip nicely, yes the Clean wire is nice, yes the Asymmetric kinked spine is delicious. However, to put my whole rack on these even at wholesale is murder. Frankly the benefits of Clean Wire for a gear racking biner is negligible. even when slamming cams in on roofs and wandering pictches my second has few issues with notched biners. Mostly because you can just take the cam out first then unclip the pro. I as a leader dont feel its that hard to get a krab of my harness. Applications that it would be useful for is trad draws as thin Dynema can be a pain when doubled. I would if I could buy like 60 of these in colors...but I wouldn't feel good about it.

I got 16 of these carabiners to start off my trad draw rack and I quickly fell in love with them! The clean nose feature is the whole reason I got these, and the difference between clipping/unclipping of these and what I used before(BD's livewire draws broken down) is astounding. Never had a problem with the rope snagging the nose. The design is sweet. Super light and totally worth the price, even though I got them at wholesale through my work! So, basically everything is bomber about this carabiner but the price, but I still think it's worth it

I've been adding these to my rack and I have to say that I love them. The build quality is truly incredible, they’re light and oh so easy to handle. The only issue with these is their cost, which may explain why so few retailers carry them. If you’re willing to shell out for them, I’ve found these to be superior to the Petzl Ange L, which has essentially the same cost. Their specs are similar, but the DMM is easier to handle and the build quality is second to none.

FYI the nose width is 11.9mm, and nose depth (looking side on) is 10.8mm. That's wider than Shield @ 10.7/10.3mm. That, and kinked spine... Still pondering those for rope end only.
