The SPIRIT EXPRESS quickdraw offers better clipping for sport climbing. Weighing less than 100 g, it is versatile and moves easily from the crag to long sport routes. It has a straight-gate SPIRIT carabiner on top and a bent-gate version on bottom. The top carabiner, equipped with the Keylock system and a special nose shape, facilitates clipping and unclipping the anchor. The bottom carabiner, with bent gate and Keylock system, facilitates clipping the rope. The EXPRESS sling is equipped with a STRING protector to hold the lower carabiner in position. Its ergonomic shape offers excellent grip when working a route.

SPIRIT carabiners:
- H-shaped profile offers an improved strength/weight ratio
- wider contact surfaces for better rope glide and reduced wear on the carabiner
- SPIRIT straight gate (upper part): facilitates clipping and unclipping, thanks to the Keylock system and the shape of its nose
- SPIRIT bent gate (lower part): facilitates clipping the rope, thanks to the Keylock system
EXPRESS sling:
- ergonomic shape for excellent grip
- lower end equipped with STRING to hold the carabiner in position and protect the webbing from wear
