DMM wanted to improve on their super light Phantom carabiner and this is what they had in mind when they started to design the Alpha Light. (Maybe they should have called it the Phantom light!)
They were after a larger size trad rock climbing biner with all the weight advantages of the Phantom, but with better handling and a bigger gate opening. So they kinked the backbone to increase the gate opening and put a grooved pattern on the outside of the biner under the natural holding positions. Basically a lighter version of the Alpha, 6g lighter to be precise. That's 12g per quickdraw, not to be scoffed at!
