Petzl Spirit bent gate


Versatile karabiner for sport climbing, available in straight and bent gate versions.

SKU: M53 B Category:


“The SPIRIT carabiner is the standard for sport climbing. The H-shape reduces the weight of the SPIRIT carabiner (39 g) in order to maximize weight reduction on long sport routes. The straight gate version, equipped with the Keylock system and a special nose shape, facilitates clipping and unclipping the anchor.”


  • The H-shaped profile offers an improved strength/weight ratio
  • Wider contact surfaces for better rope glide and reduced wear on the carabiner
  • Available in two versions:
    – SPIRIT straight gate: facilitates clipping and unclipping, thanks to the Keylock system and the shape of its nose
    – SPIRIT bent gate: facilitates clipping the rope, thanks to the STRING webbing protection (holds the carabiner in position) and to the Keylock system
