Equipped with the new Nano 22 carabiner for the gear end and the full-size Photon Wire for the rope end.
Versatile and lightweight 10 mm x 60 cm Dyneema® runner.
A good draw for long routes should be:
• Light – they are being carried a long way
• Compact – sometimes you need to carry a lot of them
• Versatile – you never know what big routes will throw at you
• Functional – easy to use in any situation
The Mach Express excels in each of these areas as one of the lightest trad draws on the market and by far the most functional. The new Nano 22 on the gear end situates perfectly on any kind of pro from wires to cam slings to bolt hangers. Their low profile takes up less space on gear loops than traditional carabiners and they fish in and out of cracks, chain links and other tight spaces with ease. Yet they are still big enough for normal clipping and the use of clove hitch knots – two great tests for determining when a carabiner is just too small. The Photon Wire straight gate is the lightest full-size carabiner on the market with a gate opening up to 25% bigger than comparable carabiners making it the optimal choice for the rope end. The Dyneema® slings are light, strong and thin making them the perfect choice for long routes. The unique properties of Dyneema® also make them particularly well-suited for wet conditions common with ice and alpine climbing.
