The main function of this new concept is to shape and support the loop of the leash, and protect both the webbing and the leash rope from abrasion damage.
The leash rope fits into the U-shaped channel of the ring in order to avoid direct contact with the webbing. Compared to other rings, ZERO’s contact area with the webbing is much bigger which means that the forces are equally distributed on the webbing.
Want to go ultralight? In this case ZERO BLACK is perfect for you. It’s machined from 7075 aircraft quality aluminium alloy with hard anodized finish for additional strength, endurance, and wear resistance. It weighs less than 80 grams, which is less than half of the weight of the lightest steel ring on the market. It’s really a “must have” piece in every ultralight system.
