With a 32kN major axis strength rating, the Zodiac is strong enough for rescue loads and robust to withstand intense use by groups and centres. It is relatively light and compact for a rigging carabiner, making it easy to transport. A design that forces loads toward the spine, matched with its high strength rating, make the Zodiac appropriate for high load scenarios.

I’ve been using the Zodiacs for general climbing / belay rigging. The outstanding build quality and super smooth action gives you the same feeling as closing the door on a Mercedes – only cheaper!
