Product Description

BLACK DIAMOND

"HotWire"

Carabiner

BD210128

Brand New

DESCRIPTION:

The world's first wiregate carabiner for climbers.

The Black Diamond HotWire has been revamped with an updated, 20% lighter hot-forged design.

Its optimal size-to-weight ratio, flat gate-to-rope interface and resistance

to freezing up in alpine conditions all ensure its continued popularity


HOT FORGING VS. COLD FORGING


We use two different forging methods to build carabiners—hot and cold forging.

Each has its benefits and using both allows us to achieve the

best possible shape, size and strength for each carabiner’s intended use.

HOT FORGING, a process where both the rod stock

and forge dies are heated, allows us to “move” the metal,

creating more intricate shapes, such as our GridLock and Oz biners.
