Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Bolt hangers can wreck havoc on lightweight wire-gate draws, especially if you're regularly whipping off a project and hang-dogging through sequences. To address the issue, DMM fitted its featherlight Alpha biners with hot-forged solid gates to make the Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw. The combination of durability, easy handling, effortless clipping, and a relatively low weight make this draw the perfect choice for sport climbers who expect their gear to work as hard as they do.

  • Alpha biners feature a grippy groove pattern and a bent backbone for easy handling and effortless clipping
  • Burly solid gate design on the bolt end stands up to the abuse inflicted by bolt hangers
  • Hot-forged bent gate on rope end makes for quick and easy clipping
  • Clean nose profile reduces snags for easier clipping and cleaning
  • I-beam construction allows for low weight and high strength
  • Variable width nylon sling keeps the biners properly aligned

4x4 of the quickdraw world

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're tough on gear or have huge balls this is the draw for you. I couldn't have been happier with a piece of equipment

Great first set!

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

In the words of a friend whom I purchased these for as a gift:
I'm brand new to lead climbing and these quick draws have worked well for me. The gate is pretty easy to open and to get use to which is great for a nervous beginner. These are also light weight. I barely notice them when I'm climbing. One thing I do wish is that the gates had groves in them for your fingers. Even though the gates are easy to open I do notice my finger slipping a little when opening the gate.

Im wondering when you will be getting more...

Hey Rob,

It doesn't look like we will be getting any more of these draws in anytime soon but we do have the Alpha Biner in stock in both the bent or straight gait if you were interested in building the draw yourself as well as the wiregate version of this draw.

My Favorite Quickdraw

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the business end carabiner, with its easy clip gate which DMM says is hard to accidentally unclip. DMM makes super high quality stuff, the gate action is solid and smooth and I expect these 'biners to last years and years without any degradation to the action. Suberb sport quickdraw.

We have a bunch of 12cm draws coming in mid month. Keep checking back around then.

Decent draw

Overall this is a good draw. VW bones eliminate a lot of twisting to keep the biners oriented properly as much as possible. The bolt biner has a solid feel and very smooth action while the rope biner has a deep bend to make clipping a breeze. Almost never have to fiddle with the biner orientation or reclip due to the draw slipping.

We have a bunch of 25cm coming in sometime in early May. We have plenty of the other two lengths right now and more coming at the same time as those 25cm.
