Description

Ultralight, resistant to freezing, and easy to clip—get it all with the Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner.

The Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner brings you full-strength, easy-to-clip performance at an incredibly light weight of 1.3oz. Unlike other ultralight carabiners, the Neutrino has a large gate opening, so it won't feel like you're trying to clip into a keychain when you're totally gripped and Elvis leg is rocking your blue-suede climbing shoes. Because of its freeze-proof wire gate and ultralight design, the Black Diamond Neutrino hangs from trad, ice, and alpine racks the world over.

Neutrino, simple classic

Neutrino, simple classic

More people have their racks on the BD Neutrino then any other biner I've seen. Solid, Strong, Safe.

Great biners

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are no problem carabiners for anything you need. You just clip it and it stays. I bought one of each color individually because at the time it was chaper doing it that way. I got matching colors to go with my BD Camalot set.

Black D Carabiner

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Good little carabiner, does the trick!

So in a review I posted about a slight difference in colors. When I purchased the rack pack and the gray did not match the gray single neutrino (this item) I purchased.

Previously I've noticed this, but this time it wasn't even close.

Quick Clippage

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

To be honest, I only went with the Neutrino's because they were one of the cheapest options that BC offered at the time of purchase. In addition to their inexpensiveness, they also had a ton of positive reviews to go with them. Ahhh yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Since I can't speak on their ability for when it comes to climbing, (you'll have to read the other reviews below) I can vouch for their awesome non-climbing versatility elsewhere. Primarily, I use them for danglin' random pack accoutrements, on the fly key chainery, and even leashing up the pooch. Most recently, clipping stuff to my SUP.

Inexpensive, many color options, can withstand the elements, I'm a fan.

Simple but a Proven History

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I started building my rack, the natural cost effective go-to was the Neutrino's.

Gate Size:
The gate size on these are middle of the road. Not super huge but not super small. They work perfectly fine for me. My draws are all the Trango Phase draws that have small wire gates (some climbing partners complain about them) the Neutrino's have bigger gates than my Phase biners and I think the Neutrino gates are perfectly fine. 4 out of 5 stars for this.

Biner Size:
Like the gate, these aren't huge biners but they aren't super small either. For trad they're great and get the job done. I give a 4 out of 5 stars for the size.

Color Coding:
This is the biggest strength for these is the anodization color matching with the Camalots.

But here is where is where I'll be nit-picky. Especially since BDE manufactures stuff that costs a lot. The single Neutrino's I bought do not match identically (color-wise) to the Neutrino Rack Pack that I purchased. It looks to me like they were either anodized in different manufacturing facilities or there was an inconsistency in the product made at one facility. This doesn't make me mad since they'll get all scratched up and used. But it is something that makes me curious since BDE they constantly mention their quality standards. I'd give them 3 out of 5 stars on this just because it should be the same.

Weight:
These are not super light like some of the Trango Phase biners or other biners out there but they definitely are not super heavy. I've given them 3.5 out of 5 starts for the weight.

Over all these are great and the perfect economical option (as economical as trad equipment can be!) for someone just building their rack.

The green Neutrino is not as bright as the picture. Could just be the batch that my green neutrino came from.

Good for everything

For the price you really can't get much better - they work for both climbing purposes and are about the same price as many cheap biners people use for things like holding keys, holding a water bottle, etc. Good solid choice - best thing out there? No. But a solid compromise for the price and color variety is great.

Decent. Average.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

BD Neutrino Biners are good biners. They're smooth. They're appropriately tensioned and sized. They're strong and durable. They're great for color coding to BD Camalots. That's probably their biggest strength. But frankly, they just fail to impress. They're amazingly ordinary. Incredibly unremarkable. Average. They're not particularly light. They're size is middle-of-the-road. They're gate opening isn't happily large or sadly small, but acceptably average. The basket too is best described as common.

When I build my complete rack, I will go with biners that are both lighter and have a larger opening. But these will do, and they're perfectly color coded to BD Cams. So....yay color coding!

Versatile biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just made a dog leash for my pup out of an old climbing rope and a Neutrino Carabiner from Black Diamond.

This is a very versatile piece that I love to use for keys, quickdraws, nuts, dog leashes and many more.

Great little things

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These guys are great for anything you could think of that you need a non-locker. I use some for my hammock, others for climbing gear, backpacking, anything you could think of. They aren't super lightweight, but they are great for so many applications.

Excellent build quality as well, no sharp edges, and a smooth gate action. The colors are awesome as well.

Good, not best.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a few of these on the first set on cams i bought, after climbing more and seeing how quickly the weight adds up on big climbs. I changed to the CAMP nano 23 and am super stoked.
Admittedly these are a tiny bit easier to clip than the nano's and that could just be that they are a bit bigger and I have giant hands. but at 36 grams they are way heavier than the nano (23 grams) which makes the very slightly harder clipping nano 23 my top choice for racking biners. and some day I will replace the neutrino's I have with nano 23's

key carry-all

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i use this for my keys. it's the right size, and the wire gate is smooth. nuff said. it's nice to have a biner that you can use in a pinch.

Good for just about everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these guys on the slings on my cams and all my alpine draws. I've used them in 90 degrees with 100% humidity and -10 with 25 mph winds. The gate always works easily and efficiently even after having some of them for three or four years. If you're one I those climbers who likes light weight, these are a bit heavy but for 5 bucks a pop, these are hard to beat you.

Good racking biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There's not much to say about these that hasn't already been said. They work super well, and for how small they are, they open cleanly and aren't too fiddly. That being said, I prefer a biner with a notchless gate (Hoodwire, Wild Country Helium, etc). For color coded racking biners though, they get the job done.

good to take with cams

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

like to put each cam with its color biner.

good all around

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this carabiner to use for my chalk bag while rock climbing. This is a great carabiner to have as it can function for several other uses if I were to ever get in a pinch while climbing. Much better to have this guy than the ol crappy Wal-mart style.

Responded on

When I first bought these, that was my reasoning entirely. I have some and they double as hammock hangers, gear fasteners and emergency rappelling devices.

Perfect for alpine, rock, skiing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A bit small for ice climbing, but a perfect cheap wire gate for everything else. One of the few carabiners you can almost always get in all colors, so no excuses for not adding bling and color coding to a rack. Heavy enough to feel solid in hand as well, which is a nice mental boost.
