Description

Pick up a rack of these beauties and prepare to be amazed – trust us, it really is shocking how so much gear can weigh so little!

Being super light is not the whole story though. You also need to find the optimum balance between size, strength and weight.

Sure, we could have made this biner smaller, and as a result, lighter, but there comes a point when a tiny biner becomes a key ring – too fiddley to hold. Functionality is just as important as weight. At 28g the Phantom is astonishingly light.

Features
Original super lightweight wire gate biner
Strong and lightweight I-Beam construction

Rock and Ice Gear Review

The Phantom is touted as the world’s lightest full-strength carabiner, and this beauty is a pleasure to use. Its refined finish says “trust me,” which is always a good thing with climbing gear. It does suffer from sticker shock—it’s the most expensive biner of the ultralight lot.
