We cherish our equipment like a treasure and can't get enough of the chic colours and shapes of our carabiners, exes & co. However, our addiction to equipment also has its price.
Toxic chemicals are used to anodise our hardware. The waste water produced after the dyeing process is toxic and, if not disposed of properly, extremely harmful to humans and the environment. In fact, anodising is primarily used to colour our hardware. It has no influence on their strength. Okay - it also increases their corrosion resistance, but with normal use and proper storage, this is negligible.
For this reason, we should ask ourselves the question: Can't we do without all the dazzling colours in favour of an intact environment? At EDELRID we have answered this question with "yes". With the HMS BULLETPROOF ECO, we are bringing a non-anodised carabiner onto the market for the first time. For the first time, consumers have an ecological alternative to an anodised standard carabiner.
The HMS BULLETPROOF ECO is available as a (1) screwgate or (2) triple lock version.
- Keylock closure system on upper carabiner for optimal handling when clipping and unclipping
- H-profile construction ensures best possible use of material and minimal weight
- Steel insert prevents premature wear from rope friction or bolt hangers
- Available as either screwgate or Triple Lock model
