Awesome crampon. Stiff enough to front-point in, but still enough flex for walking on a glacier. The powder coating comes off if you use them on rock, so just be sure to rub WD-40 on them after each climb (prevents rust).

Overall, great crampon for when you will be doing glacier, vertical rock, and ice all in the same climb.

Price Paid: $130

Not a slip-on crampon. Once I figured out how to properly mount these on my boots they work great.

Pros

  • Stays tight

Cons

  • Not a slip-on-and-go crampon

Size up the crampons to your boot, lock it in.

Getting on and strapping in can be a pain.

I've used them a dozen times, most recently a hike up Mt. Katahdin.

Once I figured how to strap them in properly they stayed tight, and using the fine adjustment helps.

I use them on Koflach Arctis Expe boots and Scarpa Jorasses Pro GTX boots.
