Grivel Speedy Long incorporates a 20cm Helix ice screw and 20cm sling and biner quickdraw attachment.
Speedy is a quickdraw-ice screw combo specifically designed to simplify manoeuvres of placement and removal safely without losing the screw. It consists of a shackel rotating freely on the screw tube, a sling in highly resistant Dyneema and a carabiner. There's a weight reduction of 15% compared to the traditional screw plus quickdraw and double carabiner.
With a Speedy the climber can set up a self belay by attaching the rope after only a few turns of the screw and then finish screwing in safely. As the carabiner hangs perpendicular to the ice it's easy to thread the rope with the carabiner facing in the right direction.
