A new generation of crampons. Ten points in contact with ice while you’re walking, 12 that bite into the slope during traverses.
When a mountaineering trip takes you across varied terrain, don't be held back by crampons that are too technical or not technical enough.
Grivel Air Tech Crampons are a new generation of crampons. Ten points in contact with ice while you’re walking, 12 that bite into the slope during traverses. This has been made possible because the third pair of points are shorter and wider apart. On top of this the last two front points have a double angulation to maintain bite when descending or traversing sideways. The crampons points are short and designed for requirements of alternating ice and rock. The sharp points are ideal for anchoring on ice cauliflowers.
- Chromalloy steel construction
- Semi-rigid design
- Unique point configuration ensures complete sole coverage
- Serrated points bite well on a variety of surfaces
- Comes with anti-balling plates, and Accordeon (anti-balling plate for the connector bar)
NEW CLASSIC - An evolution of the Classic binding. Both front and rear plastic harnesses are hinged from their respective retention posts and may be "opened" to facilitate attachment to the boot, then closed securely once the boot is inside. The single strap closure system is so simple we may not need to provide instructions; the New Classic is therefore ideal for rental programs and first time users. This system is simple and reliable, quick and easy, but it does take up a bit more space in the rucksack.
NEW-MATIC - An evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic system which utilises the C-O-M rear bale and lever. The plastic harness system is hinged from two front posts which retain the boot securely even if it has a shallow, worn front welt or overboots are being used. It is a simple and efficient binding, being far more versatile than the original Cramp-O-Matic style. Made in dual-component plastic: the black part is stronger, bearing the strain whilst the yellow part is softer, increasing adherence to the boot. The harness is made from the strongest, most durable plastic available -Zytel DuPont, which was developed for the manufacture of alpine ski bindings. Obviously it cannot last forever, so please, after long and severe use replace the harness the same way you would resole trekking boots or rock climbing shoes.
CRAMP-O-MATIC - A well known system which relies on a nylon speed lever in the rear and a stainless steel front bale to hold the boot. Quick to put on, these bindings are perfect for plastic mountaineering boots that have a rigid sole and substantial heel and toe welts. The stainless steel safety strap, which was invented by Grivel, is permanently mounted on the front bale and prevents total loss of the crampon should it be forced off the boot.
