In 1995 the HotWire started the wiregate revolution. Years later the award-winning HotWire is still leading the pack, offering the best balance of function, features and value in a wiregate biner. Use it alpine or trad climbing for its lightness or for its clippability when sport climbing. The slender, no-bulk wiregate has a firm action that is effortless to clip. In whiplash situations, the gate won’t freeze open or shut due to adverse conditions. Strong, light and super clippable, the HotWire offers versatility for all types of climbing with its optimal blend of size and weight.
