The Black Diamond OvalWire Carabiner was originally designed based on Black Diamond's Oval Carabiner design and the OvalWire shows marked improvements. Incorporating a thinner body and a wire gate, the OvalWire does well at cutting some of the excess weight from its predecessor. The classic oval design also eliminates load shifting and that heart-stopping jolt as your weight settles in the biner. Throw in a large gate opening and a large capacity for nuts and pins on the Black Diamond OvalWire and you have one of the best carabiners available. It's obvious that the Black Diamond OvalWire is a great purchase for your next climbing excursion.
