"Petzl's SPIRIT is a shining example of the near perfect carabiner - suitable for all climbing applications - sport, trad, mixed, ice or alpine. Subtle features brought together in one design are the result of a vision, careful planning and meticulous engineering. Beneath the beauty of the SPIRIT are several distinctive features that all add up to extra performance and less to worry about while you're making the moves. Think about it... Clips made easy - low profile nose, optimally balanced spring tension and grooved gate make for good control. Extra security - deep basket plus Keylock Gate system that engages with frame at 350-450 lbf - nice to know when you're in the air. Top strength - flared forged cross section adds strength (highest gate open and minor axis strength) and also wide bearing surfaces. Rope friendly - The self-cleaning Keylock latch system, hooded gate and smooth internal surfaces eliminate the parts that can normally snag your rope and gear. Peace of mind - tested to 50% of rated strength and quick to see color anodized gates."
