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-forged construction
  • Nose angle opened slightly to improve clipping
  • Large rope-bearing surface
  • Same size as the original HotWire with less weight
