Hello,

I am looking for a second pair of crampons to fit my summer boots (I have a pair of b3's). Ideally good for summer alpine and to double as a fairly light ski touring pair. Any one got any advice or seen any good deals at the moment?
Thanks

What size are you looking for? Would second hand be an option?

What's that? A coat? I have an alpine coat for sale if you're keen. Only one fall, but to be fair Samichlaus is pretty strong at 14 percent.

In my experience the only binding system that fits modern ski mountaineering boots at all well is the full step in/crampomatic. These won't go on most summer boots though.

For a lightweight pair of robust crampons that will fit on most walking/climbing boots, the Grivel Air Tech in the New Classic binding is very good.
