the RockSteel offers a surprising strength-to-weight ratio in a carabiner of its capacity.

key features & application

  • most steel carabiners are made from ½ diameter steel; whereas rock exotica uses a lighter, 7/16 inch diameter steel that is heat treated for added strength.
  • like rock exotica aluminium carabiners, the rockSteel frames are CNC machined for precise fittings and exact tolerances. the result is a carabiner like no other steel carabiner in the world.  
  • the gate sleeve is rated at 16kN to protect against inward force against the gate.
  • large frame, with large gate opening
  • rated for inward gate force
