Recent Crampon Reviews

Black Diamond Contact Strap

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to fit on and great traction. These were very easy to fit to my boots (10.5D), and fast to get set up. I really appreciate crampons that are a breeze to put on and take off. It's not often I have an easy place to put them on when I get to ice, snow, etc. And the first time using them, I could feel a lot of secure traction on snow and scree fields. Full review

Black Diamond Serac Strap

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 12-point stainless steel crampon that does the job. I bought these a couple of years ago and I've used them only in snow ranging from powder to crust with my flexible hunting boots, but never on solid ice.After some mixed rocky trail hike, a fellow hiker advised me to buy a knife sharpening stone to sharpen the edges from time to time. I came to no result since stainless steel is VERY HARD to sharpen. Not that I needed any sharpening because till this day they are as sharp as they were when I first… Full review

Petzl Leopard FL

rated 5 of 5 stars The Petzl Leopard FL is an aluminum crampon featuring a Dyneema cord adjustment system. The crampon is so light you won't hate yourself for carrying them when you didn't need them. They are so easy to use and so effective you'll be glad you have them when you do need them. Specifications: All aluminum construction optimized for snow travel Ten points (with dual front points) assure traction on icy terrain Very lightweight 360 gm/12 ounces for pair CORD-TECH optimizes volume when packed in their… Full review

Black Diamond Sabretooth Pro

rated 4 of 5 stars Not a slip-on crampon. Once I figured out how to properly mount these on my boots they work great. Size up the crampons to your boot, lock it in. Getting on and strapping in can be a pain. I've used them a dozen times, most recently a hike up Mt. Katahdin. Once I figured how to strap them in properly they stayed tight, and using the fine adjustment helps. I use them on Koflach Arctis Expe boots and Scarpa Jorasses Pro GTX boots.  Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro

rated 3 of 5 stars I have had these for three months and have used them during my quest to complete the winter 46 in the Adirondacks. First the pluses: quick on and off, length of teeth, carbon steel, anti balling plates. The negatives: the attachment system although quick is ill designed; the 4 alpine stoppers are a solution to a design problem that is inelegant and frustrating when having to use in freezing temperatures. I have lost a crampon on the trail without these stoppers and find that the ratcheting system… Full review

Kahtoola KTS Steel Hiking Crampons

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Would be excellent, but for a design flaw. Rear cleats are too close together causing an instability when hiking over hard surfaces, such as ice or rock. The Kahtoola hiking crampons shown in the photo are of a flawed design. I bought a pair last year and tried them out in a variety of conditions—ranging from packed snow to icy trails. The length of the spikes make them very good on packed snow, but on ice or icy trails they are very wobbly. This instability on hard ice is caused by the too-narrow… Full review

Grivel G10

rated 4 of 5 stars High quality, good fitting steel crampon; excess strap annoying. I use these for hiking and scrambling when there is enough slope that I need the grip. They hold well on ice and hard pack, and give some assurance in deep snow. The antibott works as advertised...I never get snow packing on them. They are a 10 point crampon and designed for regular hiking boots, NOT mountaineering boots. The toe and heel fittings fold down and the length collapses to make them easier to pack. The straps stay tight… Full review

Black Diamond Neve

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent touring crampons for ordinary hiking boots. I've owned a couple of pairs of touring crampons for ordinary hiking boots. These are soo much better than my first pair you wouldn't even put them in the same competition. After correctly setting the length of my boot, these crampons have NEVER slipped off my boot — unlike my other pair! For their intended use these are just great. These are obviously not for ice climbers! But for touring in steep old snow these are just fabulous. Highly recommended! Full review

Grivel G1 Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple and light crampon for not too steep, and glacier walking. I use this for easy winter mountain. In fact it is not easy to find user of G1 crampon. But if you consider snow walk or winter climbing, and do not have technical boots, it can be good solution. Not for technical or ice climbing, front pick is short and not too sharp, but can hold tight in deep snow in normal trekking and hiking. If you want to enjoy snow trekking or glacier walking, I recommend this.  This crampon is between rubber… Full review
