DMM's Revolver karabiners are an excellent answer to the age-old problem of rope drag. Looking at the hardware end of the system, DMM decided to fit a pulley roller into the apex of a biner. A simple, but extremely effective solution to an age old problem. In practice, a Revolver placed at changes of direction on a long pitch can prevent that heavy harness feeling.
The Revolver also utilises the I-Beam construction; a method by which they can significantly reduce the weight of a biner yet maintain its strength.
The Revolver also has a further interesting function it can be used in rescue situations as a pulley. There are also wire-gate versions available.
