Carabiners can be used for a wide variety of purposes in dog mushing and running activities.
The primary use is on the front of a sled for adding support to the connection of the ganglines to the snublines and the sled itself, but they are also commonly used for attaching leads and lines to other equipment such as walking belts, scooters and rigs.
A very versatile and handy piece of equipment.
The Boa is the rigging carabiner of choice for many climbers and it has proved to be one of our the popular carabiners over the last few years.
The Boa features a fully I-Beamed hot forged back and a keylock nose. This has had a dramatic effect on the weight and the Boa Screwgate comes in at a svelte 83g - which is remarkable considering its size. It works so well because the offset HMS shape makes it massively versatile and very strong - it operates both as a very good belaying carabiner and as a rigging biner.
On rigging duties its massive internal space means it eats up ropes and slings and is perfect for creating centralised anchor points. The slight offset shape also forces the load towards the spine increasing the carabiners strength.
The new Boa also features our new super strong 7075 barrel that resists cross loading forces and makes its use with figure of eights potentially much safer.
The Boa series is available with Screwgate.
