Wild Country Helium krabs at bargain prices!added May/2014, see all Outside Ltd news & reviews
announcement by Outside Ltd
The Wild Country Helium has long been established as undoubtedly the best all-round karabiner on the market, and here's why:
- 33g per krab - light enough for trad and alpine (or tight baggage allowances!)
- Large enough to use easily with thick gloves on - great for winter climbing
- Easy to clip for sport-climbing
- Wiregates don't suffer from whiplash
- Seriously strong - 25kN with a 10kN gate open strength
- Clean nose doesn't snag on gear, makes stripping a sport route easy
- Completely shrouded nose can't be pressed open by rubbing against the rock
The amount of engineering that went into it has always made it a rather expensive 'biner, but we've got a bundle at a fanatastic price, just £6.50 for a single Helium krab in (red or silver) or £29 for a multicoloured 5-pack. The colours match up perfectly with Wild Country's Helium Cams for easy identification.
