rockD Stainless

£31.50£34.00

The rockD Stainless is the right choice for a strong, compact karabiner, tough enough to hold up in the harshest of environments. The narrow, asymmetric “D” shape concentrates the load along the spine, which maximizes the strength of the Karabiner along the major axis.

Not only is the frame made from stainless steel, but also the components within the karabiner. Each piece will resist corrosion far beyond the equivalent materials found in other non-stainless karabiners.

The rockD features several unique Rock Exotica design elements: snag-resistant keylock nose design, lock-status indicator, precision machined frame, and an angled gate for maximum gate opening.

 

RopeGeeks Verdict

The rockD stainless auto lock has been my karabiner of choice for a while now for high load applications and for descender attachment.  These are no larger than a normal rockD (they are heavier) but the increase in strength in both major (41kN) and minor (17kN) axis make them worth the additional 100grams or so.  Very resistant to corrosion and due to the extra mass in the gate, the mechanism is extremely positive.
