/ crampons without front bail but with replaceable front points
Nice thing about the Lynx crampons is that they come with interchangeable front bail and straps so you get both options.
You would have to be going some to actually wear out the front points before the rest of the crampon is knackered, either that or you only dry tool
Or Scottish mixed....
I disagree. I've decided that it is financial madness to buy crampons without replaceable front points (unless only ice climbing perhapos)
Seems there are plenty of options anyway. Thanks!
"Or Scottish mixed....

I agree with that.
However I'm surprised that you couldn't find crampons with replaceable points and strap fittings at the front, most (all ?) crampon models that have a toe bail bar version with replaceable points - if there is also a strap version also have replaceable points.

Obviously just didn't try hard enough. Pathetic googling technique....
The petzl range is also worth a look.
