Oval carabiners are a technological challenge because of their shape " the load is shared equally between the spine and gate sides of the carabiner, which typically results in lower strength ratings. With our hot forging process, we are able to compensate shifting material and putting aluminum where it needs to be to reinforce the frame. The oval allows for proper orientation and helps to limit load shifting while in use.
