DMM Alpha Sport Quickdraw Description
The Alpha Sport quickdraw gives confident handling and easy clipping. Alpha carabiners have grippy back bars, deep rope baskets and a shape that sits naturally in the hand for ease of use. Solid gates improves handling and clipping action, and a rubber keeper on the rope end ensures the carabiner loads in its strongest orientation.
The Alphas are mounted on a thick nylon sling that makes it easier to haul back to your high point on a route. The quickdraw for sport climbers who prize easy handling and quick clipping.

The Jurassic Verdict
Our head coach, Paul Jackson, reckons that the DMM Alpha Sport Quickdraw’s are without doubt the most exceptional sport climbing quickdraw out there. We can’t say enough good things about these quickdraw’s and how great they are, quality. They clip and unclip brilliantly well, and are superb on any sport climb. The only downside is the mortgage needed to purchase a full set!
