Xenon 'Techwire' gate - a sporty full size all rounder.
XENON QUICKDRAW - 10mm x 20cm DYNEEMA SLING
The Xenon has been designed to fill the gap in the Wild Country range between the top of the range Helium and the ubiquitous Wild Wire. Thus the Xenon retains features of both and has been slimmed and trimmed down to create a biner which is a lighter than average 38 grams.
So the Xenon adapts a classic bow back shape and feel so that only a full size biner can give, yet weight is shaved by adapting some of the ideas and technology gleaned from the' I Beam Back' of the Helium. And although the Xenon is not a true I Beam it gains another benefit from not being, which is that is has a very thin nose profile, great for racking and great for tight clips or old bolts...
The Xenon is available in new Gold anodising and is another lightweight winner!
Built with safety in mind the Xenon sports a new, 'hooding' around the nose, which helps to prevent accidental opening against the rock, yet, at the same time sports a slim profile for quick clipping. This is partly made possible with our new 'narrow-wire' gate - meaning that tight spots are no problem for this unit.
Essentially the Xenon offers a great deal to the all round climber wishing to up grade their rack and shave some weight, with a clevery designed low profile unit that enhances clipping and racking.
The Xenon QD comes in three lengths, 10cm / 15cm / 20cm and is on Wild Country's exclusive 10mm Dyneema making it brilliantly light.
So at only 81 grams for a 20cm draw it's a fantastic choice for sports, trad and on-sighting, weighing very little yet fitting into the hand perfectly as only a full size biner can...
For 2008 all Xenon draws also come with Wild Country new Tadpole which is our little rubber ring which holds the bottom biner in place
