We went back to the drawing board on the G-First and created and even stronger carabiner, all without adding any additional weight. Built as the new workhorse for Fire, Industrial, Rescue, Safety and Tactical industries, the Elite is the world’s strongest D shaped NFPA 2500 (1983) certified aluminum carabiner. Rated to 45kN, this ‘biner weighs only 4.6 oz. almost 10% lighter than other G-Rated aluminum ‘biners and less than half the weight of steel carabiners. Whether you’re fighting fires, working at height, saving lives or in a combat zone, the Elite has you covered.
Each carabiner is individually proof loaded and meticulously hand-inspected before leaving our ISO 9001 factory.
