How to use DMM Quickdraw, Maintenance and Servicing, warnings and lifespan with instructional pictures.
All our carabiners are designed with a specific function or purpose in mind, and its easy to see from a quick glance at the Thor’s impressive stats exactly what sets this biner apart. Following the classic lines of the Spectre 2, the Thor’s meatier back means that it achieves a confidence inspiring 11kN gate open rating, and also offers an even more generous rope radius to help care for your rope.
This biner is truly versatile, and could equally be used for trad, sport or winter climbing alike. If its extra security and robustness you are looking for, then this is an obvious choice.
I-Beam construction to minimise weight
Very generous rope radius
Rope groove to ensure correct loading
Super strong 11kN gate open rating for extra security
Great all rounde
Chris Rowlands came all the way from Wales to give us the scoop behind the DMM Thor carabiner.
This video is kinda "artsy." The first 30 seconds are basically the letters T H O R, and then there's some stats listed (no voiceover). But it's kinda fun background music!
So, in conclusion I have no hesitation in awarding the DMM Thor quickdraws 5 stars for performance. I have used them for all my Trad climbing this season, they perform well enough for sport climbing (although they work better for on sighting as the thin Dyneema slings are not good for grabbing) and I feel they will perfom great in winter. The sets come with either a Thor top biner or a shadow top biner, my preference has definitely been for the wire gate Thor.
