The large Ange carabiner represents the middle ground between the traditional gate carabiner and the classic wire gate carabiner. It combines the fluidity of the spring gate with the lightness of the wire gate system.
Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile give the large Ange carabiner a light weight of 34 grams and an optimal weight-to-strength ratio. It is particularly suited to users looking to reduce weight while keeping the functionality of a standard size carabiner. The shape of the nose is designed to optimize clipping and unclipping.
The ANGE L carabiner is light (34 g): it is ideal for reducing weight when climbing. It is also useful in alpine conditions for those looking to maintain comfort and maximum strength while limiting their weight to a strict minimum
Petzl's MonoFil Keylock ensures smoother opening and closing of the carabiner and a much longer lifetime compared to traditional wire gate carabiners. The wire gate is protected from lateral rubbing (against rock...)
The unique H-profile allows an optimal size and strength-to-weight ratio
The indent on the bottom of the carabiner helps keep the STRING in place so that the sling is properly positioned on the carabiner
The surfaces that come in contact with the rope and with the anchor are wider, for better rope glide and reduced carabiner wear
The nose of the carabiner has a hole that allows ice, snow or dirt to be cleared out
The deflector works with the shape of the carabiner to promote proper positioning of the carabiner on its major axis
