Chimera 12cm


My vote: None ( 5.5 avg )


The Chimera is our flagship lightweight clean nose carabiner, with dimensions that strike a precise balance between weight saving and useability.

Our signature I-beam construction sheds grams while retaining impressive strength. Security comes from a fully clean nose that reduces snagging, and is backed by a 9kN gate open rating. The Chimera is ideal for trad and alpine adventures where a light rack adds to your chance of success.

Designed for maximum strength with minimum weight at 30g
Clean nose for snag-free clipping and unclipping
Quickdraws supplied on 8mm Dynatec with rubber keeper

We’ve been testing several over the summer and found them to be brilliant for Alpine adventures and lightweight trad. I’ve been using the DMM Thors for quite a while now, I also have a couple of Spectre 2 quickdraws on there as well. The Chimera have the same action, nice and smooth and DMM have cleaned up the nose and still been able to retain the wire gate. The gate has been tapered cleverly to fit under the nose hood.
