Notchless carabiners are great, but until the Smooth showed up, they've all been well over 50gm and very old school. The Smooth Straight and Bent Gates weigh in at 40gm each making for a very light and very smooth clipping experience. Beautifully forged with smooth lines and a smooth gate action. The notchless gate makes for easy clipping and snag-free operation.
A classic by any other name, the Smooth Wire Gate may be the best all 'round carabiner we make. Smooth enough for sport climbing, light enough so it doesn't hold you back on an alpine climb, use the Smooth Wire Gate just about anywhere. The wire gate resists gate flutter and whiplash so you can use it confidently just about anywhere. Note: The Smooth Wire Gate is a traditional notched design.
