Light paraglider carabiner with sideways opening for modern, narrow webbing straps of up to 25 mm width.

At the initiative of and in cooperation with ADVANCE German supplier EDELRID have developed a 51 gram light paraglider carabiner for modern, narrow webbing straps of up to 25 mm width. The speciality: the FORAS opens sideways! This gives the Twistlock Alu carabiner a wider opening space, which makes it much easier to hook into paraglider riser loops.

Equipment is becoming lighter, webbing straps narrower. So that these don’t slip out of position, carabiners have also to become slimmer. But this has the disadvantage that they don’t open wide enough for easy clipping in of paraglider risers. The FORAS changes this. The 51 gram light Alu carabiner, which accepts webbing up to 25 mm wide, opens to the side! Thanks mainly to its H profile design the carabiner’s breaking strain is 23 kN.

An automatic Twist-Lock closure gate guarantees best possible handling, and a batch number with manufacture date provides a simple check on lifespan. Rounded edges make sure the FORAS looks after your riser fabric and a nose shape prevents carabiner cross loading. Every single example is machine-tested before it leaves the EDELRID plant.

Future ADVANCE products with narrow webbing straps will be supplied with FORAS carabiners. The FORAS is also compatible with ADVANCE tandem spreaders.

The price is for a single carabiner; order 2 if you want a pair.

Edelrid FORAS Carabiner Reviews

Perfect containment on 09/09/2017
  • Star Rating
Seemed small in comparison with standard twist-lock carabiners, but impressed by precise containment of harness and risers (25mm) loops. There is no lateral movement, carabiner just flips up vertically with loops centred, when wing comes up. Close internal radius also keeps loops of stirrup and front reserve container/cockpit in the same quadrant all the time.
