Can anyone tell me the difference between...

Can anyone tell me the difference between the neutrino and the hotwire biners? They look pretty much the same to me.

Responded on

Hotwire Gate Opening : 25 mm
Neutrino Gate Opening: 22 mm

The main difference is in the size (see gate opening). The hotwire is full size where the neutrino is not quite full size. It depends what you are going to use the biner for.

Surprisingly, even though the Hotwire is noticeably larger, the weight is now the same (0-1 gram difference) as the Neutrino. Most users will find the Hotwire easier to clip due to its size, but it is less compact on the rack/harness.

Also, the hotwire is hot forged. But who really cares about that..
