User Review: Grivel G12
Price Paid: €. 125 / $. 175
I am a mountain hiker and I am active all year round mainly in the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. Day tours only. I walk on Hanwag shoes from early spring to late autumn with the support of light crampons if necessary. In winter I hike on Raichle All Degree's with Grivel G12 crampons. Excellent combination.
To the Grivel G12 crampons:
This is an excellent product. Very sturdy and versatile. For my Raichle shoes I have the mixed version, with the fixed clip-on binding for the heel and the universal binding for the front.
The heel clip-on binding is user friendly and, once fastened, will stay tight all day long.
The front fastening system, with the cord going through two simple rings, is very easy and effective and hardly needs any re-fastening, not even after some intensive climbing.
Recommendable without hesitation.
