Edelrid Beast Crampon

Similar to models such as the BD Cyborg, Petzl LYNX and Grivel G14, the Beast can be set up in twin or monopoint mode. You also get three different toe bails for the price of just one pair of crampons. This versatility is a real bonus, reckons Dan Bailey. It's just a shame replacement points are so expensive!

Climbing Technology Nuptse Evo Crampon

A classic 12-point crampon that will cover you from winter walking, though mountaineering, to climbing at a respectable level, the Nuptse Evo represents great value for money, says Tom Ripley.

Grivel Air Tech Crampons

Most winter fans need an all-rounder in their crampon stash - one pair for everything from Munro walks to lower grade mountaineering. The Grivel Air Tech is designed specifically to meet this broad remit. So how does it perform? Dan Bailey gives it a bash.

Beast Lite Crampons from Edelrid

The lightest technical crampons currently available allied to a very clever modular design that means they will fit many different boots types. But what compromises need to be made to get down the weight down so low?
