Kahtoola KTS Crampons £110
KTS Aluminum - Flexible, Ultralight Crampon
Gain traction and save pack weight with our KTS Aluminum Crampons. With 7075 Aircraft Aluminum, their durability will give you added traction across a wide variety of icy and snowy terrain yet keep your pack (and feet) light as they weigh a mere 19 ounces per pair. These aluminum crampons won't be pack hogs, either - they fold down to a compact 3.5 x 3.5 x 8 inches, meaning you have plenty of room for freeze dried meals, camera gear and all the other things that make your days outside worthwhile.
Petzl Charlet Vasak Crampons £125
Classic 12-point crampon for general-purpose mountaineering use. Available in four lightweight binding options.
Cassin C14 Crampons £175
The modular C14 features six points of adjustment so climbers can customize their crampons for their preferred style of climbing. The wide spacing of the dual points promotes stability and helps prevent clogging with ice chunks. The C14 can also be configured as a monopoint (centered or offset, kit included). For overhanging mixed climbing, an optional heel spur can be attached. The side points are designed to give the climber secure foot placements on ice, rock, and snow.
The Black Diamond Cyborg is a high-end ice and mixed climbing crampon with a lightweight stainless steel design. Optimized for steep waterfall ice, mixed climbing or hard mountain routes, the Cyborg's semi-rigid design offers maximum control for precise placement with minimal weight. Used in mono- or dual-point configuration, the modular, hooded vertical frontpoints perform flawlessly.
This crampon is the evolution with two front points of the G20 model that has established the new standard of lightness of the technical crampons. The new Mono-Rail technology distributed the points in an intelligent and original way.
Our most technical crampon is the Terminator, a fully rigid climbing crampon which has more set-up options than you have underpants - choose the points you want and get cranking.
