Alpha Wire Quickdraw

The Alpha Wire is the ultimate versatile quickdraw. Read more

Shaped for trad climbing.

The Alpha Wire is the ultimate versatile quickdraw. Deep rope baskets help seat gear and ropes and encourage loading along the Alpha’s strongest axis. A clean nose helps prevent snagging and accidental gate opening, and a superb ergonomic design means it is easy to manipulate and clip.

Connected with a Dynatec Dyneema® 11mm sling, the Alpha Wire quickdraw gives excellent lightweight versatility across all climbing disciplines.


All-round quickdraw for flexibility

All-round range are mounted on 11mm Dynatec to give quickdraws that can be used for sport, trad or winter climbing. Full sized carabiners are easy to handle when pumped or wearing gloves, while 11mm Dynatec is lightweight and robust. If you want one set of quickdraws to cover all your climbing, go for all-rounders.

Ergonomic carabiner design for positive handling and easy clipping

The Alpha's shape fits naturally in the hand, and combines with its large gate opening to make the carabiner very easy to clip.

Wire gate carabiners for maximum weight saving

Wire gates are the lightest gate type available, and are appropriate for trad, alpine and winter climbing, where minimal weight is desirable. They are less likely to freeze and clog with ice than solid gate biners, making them ideal for winter and alpine climbing.

Fully clean nose for security and reduced snagging

A secondary forging process creates a recess in the carabiner nose that houses the gate notch. This creates a smooth inner profile that prevents snagging on gear, ropes and slings. It also means the nose of the carabiner is wider than the gate, guarding against accidental gate opening caused by rubbing on rock.§

I-Beam construction for optimum strength to weight ratio

I-Beam construction techniques allow carabiners to be lighter without compromising strength. This is achieved through hot forging, a process which allows metal to be made into complex shapes that improve functionality.

11mm Dynatec to balance low weight and durability

Dynatec is strong and light, allowing thin and flexible slings to be used to connect carabiners. An 11mm diameter sling strikes a balance between minimal weight and durability, creating lightweight quickdraws that can withstand repeated use.

Go to quickdraw

Always my go-to and the first to come off my harness

Perfect for alpine/multipitch!

Using this biner (18 cm sling) since a few months on multipitch and alpine routes.
Very smooth clipping, light to carry, works well with stoppers and quick protections.

Good all rounder

These are great and I prefer having a slightly easier clip to the marginal weight saving of the phantoms. Honestly though, I kind of miss the 'alpha light'.

Great shape light to use

I love Alpha Wire is a great quick draw. A clean nose helps prevent snagging and accidental gate opening, design great .


I bought these thinking about multi pitch climbing. They are everything you want, light and strong. One difference from the previous version is that the carabiner is a little larger, which is better for handlers.
