Free Shipping. Grivel Air Tech Light New-Classic Crampon The Specs N Points: 10+2 Material: Light alloy 3D Stamp: Yes Front Points: 2 Rigid/Semirigid: Semi-rigid Asymetric: Yes Weight: 16.79 oz. Boot Size: 35-46 Binding System: New Classic Antibott: Included
An evolution of the Classic binding. Both front and rear plastic harnesses are hinged from their respective retention posts and may be "opened" to facilitate attachment to the boot, then closed securely once the boot is inside. The single strap closure system is so simple we may not need to provide instructions; the New Classic is therefore ideal for rental programs and first time users. This system is simple and reliable, quick and easy, but it does take up a bit more space in the rucksack.
Shorter underfoot spikes make the semi-rigid Air Tech Light Crampons from Grivel extremely functional when you're walking on rock and snow. The short spikes reduce leverage when used with lightweight footwear while the front and secondary points are full-length for better snowfield penetration.
- Mountain Gear
Grivel Air Tech Light Crampons are ideal on mountaineering trips when cutting weight is a priority but you still need acceptable performance. Also a favorite among ski mountaineers who must carry crampons but do not use them often, the Air Tech Light Crampons are made with aluminum instead of steel to cut weight to a scant 16. 79 ounces. Though they shouldn't be expected to climb steep ice, they offer excellent performance on compact neve.
