Ideal for Ice climbing or Trad climbing - the Energy Absorber 1 by Fixe. The Energy Absorber is a shock absorber element that can be installed between two Carabiner instead of the Express sling. In case of a fall, the seams rip open from 2 kN load on and take energy out of the fall this way. This reduces the peak loads of the Impact force that affects the belay points. When the seams are completely ripped open, the Dogbone has its full capacity of 22 kN again. This is a clear advantage especially when you have backups that are not 100% trustworthy.
