The DMM Alpha Sport 12cm Quickdraw is what DMM believe to be the ultimate solid gate, sport climbing quickdraw. And here's why: If you do a lot of sport climbing a solid gate crab makes sense. Bolt hangers can be very unforgiving of lightweight biners, particularly if you are dogging about and taking repeated redpoint falls.
The Alpha Pro and Clip are robust and strong enough to cope with the typical sport climbing scenarios, but what really makes them stand out from the crowd are the exceptional handling qualities.
The distinctive shape of the carabiners is no accident. The kinked back bone and grippy groove pattern on the apex of the spine are there for a reason. These biners are very easy to handle - something we are certain you will appreciate when stretching up to make that just-in-reach, gripper clip.
The Alpha Sport Quickdraw has an Alpha Pro and an Alpha Clip linked by a highly durable nylon dogbone. It now comes with a stylish logo and at the rope end biner there is a neat, injection-moulded keeper. This keeps the biner locked down and correctly aligned, ensuring easy clipping and optimum loading. It also protects the webbing from abrasion. Taken all round this is a solid quickdraw with all unnecessary weight removed, that looks and feels as great as it is for all levels of sport climbing.
