The HMS RONDO is ideally suited for use with canyoning descenders. The smooth round shape provides even friction and prevents the formation of sharp edges.

The fully rounded body of the AustriAlpin HMS RONDO GI allows smooth rope movement, even friction, and prevents the creation of sharp edges, providing a longer lifespan.

The GI version adds a red safety band on the gate, providing a simple and clear visual aid to identify whether the screwgate has been locked.

The gate features a corrosion-resistant brass sleeve which is milled with a special self-cleaning thread that helps remove dirt and grit each time it is opened and closed.

Each HMS RONDO GI also includes a unique identification number laser-etched on the spine.

Note: The nose of HMS RONDO is thicker than some other carabiners and can require a firm push and some wiggling when installing a descender with a rubber o-ring.

It will fit the following descenders: Critr, Sqwurel, Element, Pivot, Hoodoo, ATS, Hannibal, Hydrobot and MiniEight. It does not fit the Oka.

AustriAlpin recommends its use with the No.Mad, however this is a particularly tight fit and does require a firm push and wiggling to get on. Once connected it is extremely secure.

Key advantages:

  • round profile for smooth rope movement and longer lifespan
  • red band provides visual warning of unlocked gate
  • corrosion-resistant and self-cleaning brass screwgate
