The Grivel Air Tech are new generation of "all condition" crampons. Ten points in contact with the ice while you are walking, 12 points that bite into the slope during traverses. This has been made possible because the third pair of points are shorter and wider apart. On top of this the last two front points have a double angulations to maintain bite when descending or traversing. The crampon points on the bottom are short and designed for the new requirements of "mixed modern's" alternating ice and rock making walking easier and more efficient. The front points are long like the G12 for vertical ice. A true all conditions crampon.
When a mountaineering trip takes you across varied terrain, don't be held back by crampons that are too technical or not technical enough. Grivel Air Tech Crampons use shortened underfoot points and full-length front points to roll the advantages of 10- and 12-point crampons into one package. Tool-less length adjustments allow the Air Tech Crampons to be used on several different boots, and fine-tuned heel adjustments (newmatic) assure a perfect fit. Grivel also includes Antibott plates to keep snow from balling up under these crampons.
An evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic system which utilises the C-O-M rear bale and lever. The plastic harness system is hinged from two front posts which retain the boot securely even if it has a shallow, worn front welt or overboots are being used. It is a simple and efficient binding, being far more versatile than the original Cramp-O-Matic style. Made in dual-component plastic: the black part is stronger, bearing the strain whilst the yellow part is softer, increasing adherence to the boot. The harness is made from the strongest, most durable plastic available -Zytel Dupont, which was developed for the manufacture of alpine ski bindings. Obviously it cannot last forever, so please, after long and severe use replace the harness the same way you would resole trekking boots or rock climbing shoes.Specs:Binding: New-MaticChromolly steelSemi-rigidWeight: 31.3 ozAntibott includedCE certified
