COROS, makers of GPS sports wearables and training software for adventure and pro athletes, has launched its second generation VERTIX 2 Carabiner, made explicitly for climbers and mountaineers wishing to wear their VERTIX 2 off-wrist for more technical pursuits.
Made from high-grade aluminium and weighing just 40g, the VERTIX 2 Carabiner includes several safety features such as a Locking Gate, Trigger Lock, and Release Trigger, allowing for the secure keeping of the VERTIX 2 when both hands are needed.
Built for the demands of expert climbers
The VERTIX 2 Carabiner is built for the demands of expert climbers like COROS Pro Athlete Tommy Caldwell and is ready for anyone who wants to wear their VERTIX 2 off-wrist.
Whether ascending a technical crack-climbing route or hiking in the wilderness, full GPS tracking operation will continue to work flawlessly in the all-new carabiner. If you want to keep tracking your heart rate data, pairing it with any external Heart Rate Monitor will ensure you never miss a beat.
Other features include a Screw Stopper – which prevents the Carabiner’s locking screw from being over-tightened, as well as strong backplate protection to keep the VERTIX 2’s Heart Rate and SpO2 sensors from encountering damage due to scratches and scrapes.
• Not built as UIAA-certified climbing safety equipment.
• Not appropriate for motion sensing data, such as cadence, jump rope counts or strength training reps.
COROS has also announced that its Multi-Pitch Climb mode will be renamed to Outdoor Climb mode as it now has the ability to track both Multi-Pitch and Single-Pitch climbing.
