Does anyone know why these are recommended for trad and alpine rather than sport climbing? Thanks!

There is absolutely nothing about the Oz quickdraw that prevent their use as a sport climbing quickdraw. The small carabiner size and lightweight size makes these a bit overkill for basic sport climbing, but would be ideal if you're planning to travel internationally and want to cut down on weight. For alpine routes, the minimal weight of these carabiners make them an ideal option.
