A lightweight quickdraw designed for big alpine routes
Equipped with two hyperlight, full-size Photon Wire carabiners
11 mm Dyneema® dogbones available in 11 and 20 cm lengths feature the Karstop Evo carabiner retainer on the rope end
The Photon Wire Express Dyneema® is different from other lightweight quickdraws because its carabiners are still full size. In fact, the Photon Wire has a gate opening that is up to 25% bigger than other carabiners in its class. This makes clipping, cleaning and rigging easier in general, but especially noticeable when wearing gloves. The Photon Wire has been updated with a new body design that increases strength and rigidity and a redesigned interface between the gate and nose to help protect the wire gate from damage or accidental opening. The 11 mm Dyneema® dogbones (available in 11 and 20 cm lengths) are equipped with the Karstop Evo carabiner retainer that prevents the rope end carabiner from shifting. The combination of Dyneema® dogbones and the full-size Photon Wire carabiners make these draws a perfect choice for ice climbing where wet conditions and gloved hands create a whole new set of demands.
