Product Information

Less is more. Subtle, superlight and secure, Superlight Offset Rocks are by far the lightest passive pro per size in the world. Simple, yet incredibly effective, they combine the proven curve of Rocks with a radical side taper that adds a new dimension to protection. Intuitive and easy to place, they’re perfect for trimming a rack without cutting down options. An instant classic, and a big hit with our testers, all that’s missing from these slimline superstars is weight.

Features
Offset tapered sides.
6 sizes.
thinner wire
7075 alloy for easier removal,
Classic Wild Country curve, colour coded anodizing. 
Available in set 5-10

Our Reviews

Very good but no game changer

These are a very versatile nut and for this reason are an ideal choice where weight is a significant factor- alpine routes or nut hungry routes where double or more sets might be carried. In a normal (not offset) orientation they are nice and slender and bring great relief where a shallow placement is the only option. In highly textured rock they work surprisingly well, as again, their skinny profile can be slipped in-between nubbins and crystals. However, I find that this advantage is more obvious in the smaller sizes- hence the deserved reputation of their small brother, the WC Superlight Rocks. My main issue with these Superlight Offsets is that sizes 5-9 have a narrower and floppier wire, making subtle or hurried placements very challenging at times (especially sizes 8 and 9). As an offset nut they are very good but after 6 months using these, I prefer my DMM Alloy Offsets every time. I think this is due to the fact that the DMMs have a sloping 'foot', which makes them easier to set in pods/flares, where the Superlight Offset is prone to pivoting on the square profile of its foot. These are a good nut for those who NEED minimum weight and perhaps the unique slender profile, but in many instances I think other nuts are preferable.
