Description

The world's first wiregate carabiner for climbers, the Black Diamond HotWire® has been revamped with an updated, 20% lighter hot-forged design. Its optimal size-to-weight ratio, flat gate-to-rope interface and resistance to freezing up in alpine conditions all ensure its continued popularity.

  • Hot-forged construction
  • Nose angle opened slightly to improve clipping
  • Large rope-bearing surface
  • Same size as the original HotWire with less weight
Hot Forging vs. Cold Forging

HOT FORGING VS. COLD FORGING

We use two different forging methods to build carabiners—hot and cold forging. Each has its benefits and using both allows us to achieve the best possible shape, size and strength for each carabiner’s intended use. HOT FORGING, a process where both the rod stock and forge dies are heated, allows us to “move” the metal, creating more intricate shapes, such as our GridLock and Oz biners.
