Jon Jonckers's Bio

Addicted to lots of outdoor pursuits, but I'm primarily focused on trail running, climbing and backcountry skiing. I've managed a few top ten finishes at Ultra Marathons, climbed enough to contribute to a few obscure guidebooks, and I've been lucky enough to publish a few photos and articles so I can justify these passions to my wife. FULL DISCLOSURE: I work for Omega Pacific.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

By capitalizing on the standard D-shape and the ultralight wiregate, the Lava
is the perfect all-mountain carabiner. The hyper-light frame is paired with the
Infinity gate which is pinched in the middle to create an infinity
symbol (kinda like an hourglass) - making it easier to handle whenever clipping or while wearing gloves, and it reduces the snags of other gear on your climbing rack.

Nothing testifies to the security and strength of a product like longevity. I see this carabiner all the time among the military, search & rescue, adventure ropes courses, ziplines, and even highlines. The silhouette of the D-shape is identical to the other asymmetric aluminum Ds, however this carabiner is nearly twice as strong and exponentially more durable.
