Light, EZ to install, good grip on ice.


  • Same as above


  • They removed too much material one the pin where it's connected to crampon.
  • The pin sheered off after 2 miles on glacier ice.

Nice crampon, but the pin sucks. Duct tape would have worked just as good. I sent a message to Spark R&D about the problem, they said they have fixed the problem and they would send me a new set. The new set had the same pin, no changes, except they were black not red.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Brand new for the 13/14 season, the Spark R&D Sabertooth Crampons are specifically designed to integrate with the new Tesla System. Super easy installation and removal on-the-fly by sliding sideways into and out of the Tesla touring bracket claw mounts. Teeth are fully pushed into the snow by either climbing wire for secure ascents on steep, firm snow. Tesla System: The new Tesla System is the culmination of Spark R&D's years on the skin track, riding backcountry and Spark R&D's devotion to detail back at the drawing board. Tesla is Spark R&D's new splitboard binding anatomy with touring brackets, crampons, and climbing wires all working together with no unnecessary moving parts - just clean, simple design that raises the bar in splitboard binding technology and performance once again. Grip it and rip it - let Spark Sabertooth splitboard crampons get you to the top. Compatible with Spark R&D Magneto and AfterBurner bindings. Slide in and remove while skinning, without removing your bindings. Cutouts reduce weight. Includes storage bag to protect other gear in your pack. Climbing wires push crampon teeth firmly into the snow for secure ascents on steep terrain and in firm conditions. Standard Weight: 10 oz/pair [296g] (Regular). Inside Width: 13.8 cm (Regular), 14.8 cm (Wide). Available Color(s): Black, Red
