    No golden gloves—just golden ascents.

    The Mad Rock Ultralight Wire Gate Carabiner is so light and so strong, we're surprised it didn't pursue a career as a professional boxer. Unfortunately, few weight divisions incorporate competitors that weigh in at 31 grams, and officials felt that 23 mm of gate clearance and an easy-clipping wire gate gave the Ultralight an unfair advantage.

    Biner Size Comparrison

    My staple trad biner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my favorite biners for trad for a few reasons. This is almost the lightest carabiner for its cost. In fact the only biner that is lighter than it, the trango phase, compromises on the gate size. When I am clipping I prefer to have a larger gate. Which brings me to how crazy I am about the gates. These biners clip with ease. The gate swallows rope well and never catches or snags while I use it. Given the cost, it is not very difficult to replace these when a biner needs to get left or replaced. I am just mad over these madrocks!

    My staple trad biner

    Light Light Light

      When they say light they mean light and at 31g you will be hard pressed to find anything else like this for the price. Only reason I am giving it 4/5 is the gate can get hung up when you clean them from the bolt hangers but that is a problem with all wire carabiners. Like I said you can?t go wrong with this carabiner for the price it is awesome and if you lose it not really a big loss of money.

      Super Light, Super Strong

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Just got ten Mad Rock quickdraws with these carabiners and used them for two weeks of new routing in Belize. Despite the heat, humidity and mud, they worked like a charm! Highly recommended!

      A good binner with an embarrassing flaw

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It's a comfortable wire gate binner. I like its smooth action and overall feeling.



      The only flaw has been found after two seasons of intensive use is that it wears off too fast. Ropes groove MadRock Ultralight much faster then BD Oz or Metolius Inferno. Thus probably it's not as bargain as it seems at the first glance.

      I've owned these biners since they first came out and have found their durability to be impressive for how light they are. The only ones I've replaced were used on quickdraws and took a lot of TR'ing abuse, all the ones I use for racking/alpine draws are still in great shape after about 5 or 6 years of heavy use (trad, walls, alpine, you name it). In my experience Metolious wiregates groove about twice as fast as the Madrocks when used for quickdraws/TR'ing. I'll take a Madrock over a Metolious any day.
