The Express Mix of Kong is a strong and handy combination of the Ultratop keylock biner (main axis 26kN, minor axis 9kN, open 10kN, 51g) and the Ultratop Wire (main axis 25kN, minor axis 9kN, open 10kN, 42g) with a short sling (108g total). Small notches at the gate and the keylock system makes them Ultratop very easy to clean and the smooth action of the bent wiregate provides best clipping action.

These are my favorite draws, hands down. Keylock on top, bent weiregate on bottom, pretty anodization and smooth action on both the draws. What more could you ask for?

Now I had the possibility to test those fellas I'm totally convinced of my purchase. As those are 'just' quickdraws, I stick to the highlights: 1.) Keylock. You know it, you like it. 2.) AFAIK Kong is the only company wich gives the solid gates an additional shaping to ease gate opening (edit: wrong, Petzl has it and maybe some some others too). It's unbelievable how the small notches on the gate faciliate (un)clipping. Definately a plus! 3.) The bent wire gates perform smooooooth. Gotta love it. 4.) Compared to other draws of this weight the minor axis/open gate strength of 9, resp. 10kN is outstanding. May I never need it though... Drawbacks? Mine came with neon-orange slings. Looks like 80's glow-in-the-dark webbing... matter of taste... now I'm sure I'll find'em if I drop'em...
