Looks like the ultra-classic Spirit carabiners are getting a face lift. Only 39g makes them almost as light as the Ange. www.petzl.com/en/outdoor/new-2013-products/climbing?utm_sour>>>

Petzlís new Sirocco helmet is 48% lighter than the BD Tracer I have. Thatís pretty impressive on paper.
Looks like a botched circumcision though. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
That new helmet is 27% lighter than the Meteor III, which is even more impressive. It is ugly. I sure hope they make it in colors other than international orange.
Can't say that I am impressed with anyhting I saw there! BD all the way!
lol "The H-shape reduces the weight of the SPIRIT carabiner (39 g) in order to maximize weight reduction on long sport routes." Kinda a cool look with the monochromatic harnesses though.
Got to see a Sirocco this weekend. Not as horrid looking as you might imagine, but the international orange is a little flashy for me. Crazy light, that's for sure.
