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.
