The Nitro is an energy absorbing sling for dubious protection on ice, mixed and trad climbing.
The tearing of the stitching absorbs the impact force exerted on the anchor in the case of a severe fall (stitches tear at 2.5 kN and the sling breaks at 22 kN).
A velcro link prevents the branches from hanging down and catching on other equipment
The Nitro comes in 3 different absortion stregths:
- Low: 20cm long with 2 branches, 40 gram weight
- Medium: 24 cm long with 2 branches, 50 gram weight
- High: 16 cm long with 6 branches, 60 gram weight.
