Summary

Light, easy to install, good grip on ice.

Pros

  • Same as above

Cons

  • They removed too much material on 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.

I just noticed that Spark has a Sabertooth Upgrade Program to replace some of its older crampons: https://www.sparkrandd.com/2015/08/sabertooth-upgrade-program/
