Description

Perfect for the sport climber on a budget, the Black Diamond Freewire Quickdraw gives full wiregate performance without emptying your wallet. Two wiregate Quicksilver biners and a durable 18 mm (.7 in) nylon dogbone make for a light, all-purpose quickdraw that's at home everywhere from sport routes to alpine climbs.

  • Quicksilver wiregates on top and bottom
  • Durable, easy-to-grab 18 mm (.7 in) nylon dogbone
  • Dual wiregates eliminate gate flutter and won't freeze up
  • Straitjacket insert keeps the bottom carabiner properly oriented

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.
