At first sight
the Ultra O looks like a historical remnant
from 1970s, nostalgia is great but, we haven’t
made these oval straight gates out of any
desire to relive times past. The Ultra O
is a very practical biner that works exceptionally
well in pulley systems (locking versions
are also available for added security).
It also has hot forged, I Beam panels to
maximise the strength – weight balance
of the biner.
Despite these practical advantages, most
climbers will see it as the perfect racking
biner. It can hold a large number of wires
without the awkward bunching that tends
to happen with a conventional asymmetric
biner. The oval shape also means that the
wires will slide round easily without snagging.
