Black Diamond Contact with ABS
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The strap-on Contact is a classic 10-point crampon for mountaineers, skiers and hikers. Now with a lighter-weight, re-engineered design using stainless steel.
Compact and easy to use, the 10-point Black Diamond Contact strap-on crampons are optimized for general mountaineering, backcountry skiing and glacier walking. Now constructed using stainless steel for a design that won't rust, crampons are lighter weight and more durable than previous version; stainless steel resists snow balling. Low profile creates a secure connection to modern climbing boots. Horizontal front points provide excellent stability on snow and glaciers. Secondary points create a stable platform while kicking steps; serrated points bite into snow and ice for secure hold. Flexible toe straps fit most footwear. Included dual-density ABS plates keep snow from sticking beneath your feet. Boots size 12 and larger require the Long Center Bars, sold separately.
The Black Diamond Contact Strap Crampons are great for attaching to nearly any footwear. Don't want to wear crampon compatible boots, or buy them for that matter? Not a lot of ice on the trail, but just enough? These simple, versatile crampons are made in a steel frame that provides solid purchase on glaciers and their low weight are easy for backpacking. ABS plates can be bought with the crampons as well to reduce snowballing or stickiness.
