    See the difference that keylock gates make by racking up for your next climb with the Petzl Spirit Express Quickdraw.

    The Petzl Spirit Express Quickdraw uses notchless keylock gates on both carabiners to make clipping both the bolt and the rope incredibly easy and fast. The bent-gate, rope-end carabiner has a large 20mm opening to allow fast clips from desperate stances. The keylock gates on the Petzl Express Quickdraw also make it a cinch to clean your overhanging project after you send.

    The Ultimate Quickdraw

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got a set of Petzl Spirits a few months ago beore a big climbing trip to Red Rocks Nevada and I could not be happier. Clipping these guys is super smooth, overall making me more comfortable as a progressing sport-climber. Compared to our friends gear, the spirits have been the lightest draws I have ever used. Going up a 5 pitch sport climb (aka The Big Bad Wolf with a set of 12 draws felt like I wasn't even carrying gear. Highly recommend for those who are stoked to try something new!

    Look no further.

      This is the best quick draw for the weight that you can buy. As bomber and easily clippable as they are, you would expect them to weigh more. The dogbone is incredibly tough and the clipping is super smooth. I didn't think a draw could significantly increase my climbing confidence until I tried these.

      Best Sport Draw

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The majority of my climbing is single pitch sport climbing. These are my go-to draw every's why:
      The gate action on both the bolt and rope end carabiners is buttery smooth. The rope end 'biner is a convenient bent gate with a huge opening...helpful when clipping efficiency is at a premium and you're trying to keep moving. The key lock feature should be standard on all solid gate draws, in my opinion, so Petzl nails it there. Finally, the dogbone is not only strong, it's super helpful when pulling on your project or cleaning draws at the end of the day due to its size and design.
      If you're looking for something light, get the Ange, but if you want a workhorse that clips like a dream, the Spirits are your draw!

      Best Sport Draw Around.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Lightweight, ease of clipping and cleaning, extended length....can you ask for anything else? Love the keylock and beefy feeling in my hand. Don't use them for trad, but perfect for your local crag and next 5.12c onsight!

      Awesome sport draws, great feel, solid

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are perfect for their intended use: sport. Too heavy for alpine, much trad or much long multipitch. They feel great, you just wanna keep playing with the biners and fondling them. Nice and beefy, wide dog bone if you need to grab it. Cant recommend it enough.

      Great Sport Draws

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Got these about 6 months ago and of all my quickdraws for sport, these are my favorite. The carabiners are quick and very positive and the keylock nose keeps them from snagging when cleaning a route. They just have a real positive feel when clipping them to a bolt or the rope. Also the dogbone is great for grabbing, if you need to.

      These are a bit heavier than some other quickdraws out there and I don't reach for these as much if I am doing a long trad route. Those ounces can quickly add up quickly. But for sport, you can't do much better than the Petzl Spirit Express. Grab some for yourself and you will see and feel the quality of these draws.

      A confidence inspiring draw

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

      A confidence inspiring quickdraw for the budding sport climber. I've been trying my friends' quickdraws and settled on the Spirit express. It's easy to clip, has an extremely solid and smooth feel, and are plenty large enough to grip easily. They're expensive, so I'm slowly building out my rack with 'em.

      They do the job

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Without a doubt these draws feel great. Smooth opening, love the feel and the sound. Still, they're a bit heavy compared to wired draws but man do they feel good!

      What can I say?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Honestly, what can be said about the Spirits that hasn't already been said? They are a beautifully made quickdraw. I am curious to see how the new ones hold up over time compared to the older models; with the new construction/less metal. I did notice residual grease at gate pivot, but nothing to worry about. It looks like the new tension bar is a plastic instead of metal. The great things is with weight savings these draws can go nearly anywhere now. I'll be curious to see how the new Djinn draws stack up against the Spirits with the revamp.

      Never a better sport-draw

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Petzl Spirit draws are definitely my favorite sport-draw out there right now. The Spirit Express draws are the latest iteration of the legendary Spirit draws, which have long been an industry standard in sport climbing. The curved bottom rope-carabiner combined with the ultra-stiff dog bone makes for extremely easy clipped, especially compared to straight carabiners or flimsy dogbones. The stiff dog bone also keeps the draw in place on windy days so you don?t have to try and clip a moving target when your pumped. The thick dog bones are also really durable, and inspire confidence when the draws begin to age.

      Tough and Well Designed

        This was my first set of quickdraws to buy, but I also have a few BD HoodWires. I went half and half 12cm and 17cm of these draws. Purchased mainly due to overwhelmingly positive reviews on BC and everywhere else. The nylon dogbone is VERY sturdy. These definitely don't rotate much under the weight of the rope or when trying to clove hitch as my BD HoodWire and their dyneema dogbones do. Picture demonstrates holding the 12cm quickdraw horizontally (straight out of the packaging, they might not be this rigid after considerable use).

        Clipping is easy and the snappiness of the gates give a sense of high quality craftsmanship. Confidence inspiring .

        Tough and Well Designed


        I need them only for sport routes so I don't care that much for weight. I have different, lightweight wire biners for multipitch trad routes. So, as You said, I'll go with 8x17s and 4x12s. Not all of the sport routes in my area have completely straight lines so a little more of the longer ones should be a fine choice.

        Quick and Efficient

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This draw is a must have for any serious sport climber. Clipping on this draw is incredibly easy when sending a tough route. Not only is the clipping easy, but the durability of this draw is seemingly lifelong. I always make sure to have these with me when climbing hard sport routes.

        for the 5 dollar credit. When do I receive the code. If I order a set now can I then order a second set with the code right away.

        Mark so there isnt a code per say. You place the order, then you receive the credit in your account once it ships. Ill send you an email with a different option to make things look cleaner if you'd like.

        Feel free to hit me up at or 801-736-6398.

        This question applies to these and and the djinns. is the 5 dollars in credits for each individual draw or is it for only onedraw

        Im wondering when will you be getting more of 12cm quickdraw? I wish to buy 8 of them.

        When do you expect to get more 17cm draws...

        When do you expect to get more 17cm draws in?

        Hey Eric,

        Thanks for your question.

        We have multiple purchase orders of new inventory that are on their way and should be on sale within the next week or two. I am sorry I cannot give you an exact date but I would just bookmark this page and check every so often.

        What is the strenth or what is KN mean...

        What is the strenth or what is KN mean ?

        22kn equals approximately 5000lbs. Kn is a measure of dynamic force vs. a static load. For comparison the worst rock climbing falls rarely ever generate more than 10kn for an average sized person and a normal fall generally doesn't generate more than ~3kn.

        kN isn't a measure of dynamic or static loads, it's simply a measure of force, just like lbs. There is no differentiation in dynamic or static loads from a units point of view, but rather the magnitude of the force is different. For example, a static load of a climber 150 lb (667N = 0.667kN), whereas if the same climber falls a short distance, he may exert a dynamic load of 500 lb (2224N = 2.224kN). kN is simply the metric unit of force equivalent to the lb, and makes no differentiation between dynamic and static loads.

        Hi, I am thinking of buying my first set...

        I am thinking of buying my first set of quickdraws. How many of them (total) would you recommend to get ? Which length ?
        Thanks in advance !

        Best Answer

        I would get 10 - 12. For size I would get 11cm and a couple 17cm (for the anchors and such). With that said, I have no problems with lighter quickdraws and smaller biners. I know the reviews here say otherwise, but it's all about practicing your clipping. If you still want heavy stiff nylon draws look into CAMP USA Orbit Express Nylon Quickdraw. They are lighter (93g vs 104g), cheaper ($14.95 vs $23.95), and the opening on the bent gate is wider than the spirit (24mm vs 20mm).

        If i were to get a dozen of these, how...

        If i were to get a dozen of these, how many of the 11cm and 17 cm should i get? Half, half? Or should I go with all 11cm or all 17cm?

        I personally prefer the 17cm. I own both and enjoy the extra length for building anchors or whatever I find myself needing. I think it is a good middle ground length that can eliminate the need for runners in a slight handful of situations.

        On second thought, I recall a number of situations where the top anchors were unevenly set, and one 11cm and one 17cm fit the bill perfectly. So it might be beneficial to have a couple of each.

        I always use two longer draws for the anchors (why make the V angle any larger than necessary) and carry one or two longer ones in case the route wanders or has a roof or ledge to get around. The only negative of the longer draws is they get in your way more when hanging from your gear loops, but keeping the long ones on the rear loops and shorter ones in front seems to solve that issue.

        Will backcountry be restocking on these...

        Will backcountry be restocking on these anytime soon? I don't want to climb on anything else!
