FIRST LOOK WITH VIDEO: The Petzl Ange: a new type of carabiner by Mick Ryan.

"The Ange is stripped down to the minimum but still incredibly strong..."

"For trad pitches or long sport onsights where a big rack is required a huge weight saving can be made by using the Ange."

"A unique design is the single pin wire gate which has an incredibly smooth action."

"Additionally, Petzl's innovative String S system prevents the carabiner rotating, thus making rope clipping even easier still."

"Another feature is the snag free nose profile - the single pin wire gate slots into a cavity in the nose."
