The new Gold Xenon...
© Wild Country, Oct 2007
The full size 'daddy' Xenon is that mythic 'great all-rounder' biner and was designed to be lighter, thinner and stronger than most other fullsize biners around. With a 'Tech-wire' gate and skinny hooded nose the Xenon clips smoothly, even in the most awkward of places, racks fantastically and is well protected. This is a biner that gives maximum security with the minimum of fuss and weight.
This 2008 version is available in 10, 15 and 20cm lengths on 10mm Dyneema with the new 'Tadpole'....
Also there are 5 Packs of Sets of Biners / Quickdraws available.
Weight: 38 grams single. 10cm - 82 grams.
