Billed as the most versatile technical crampon on the market today, The Camp USA - Cassin Blade Runner Crampon devours everything from ice climbs, technical mixed routes, and traditional alpine climbs thanks to a design that can only be described as innovative. Offering added stability when you are front-pointing on vertical ice, the Blade Runner's V-shaped chromoly steel front platform provides the rigidity necessary to eliminate the flexibility and play that can leave even experienced climbers feeling insecure on technical terrain. The way in which the heel slide attaches to the linking bar combines the stability of vertical frames with the precision and adjustability of horizontal frame crampons. The heel slide is made with Sandvik Nanoflex steel that is incredibly strong, considering how thin and lightweight it is. Apart from reducing the overall weight of the crampon, the patented heel slide also adds additional flex, which makes the crampon more comfortable to walk in while alpine climbing. Adding to the Blade Runner's versatility, Cassin made the front points interchangeable between a dual- and mono-point setup, with each being easily adjusted between a centered or offset position to accommodate the various routes and surfaces you'll be able to climb with these go-anywhere, do-anything crampons.
