Re : Lynx for walking

Hello Charles.

If your activity is going to be only walking on glacier and snow then the Irvis or Vasaks will be perfect, because they are lighter, the front points are smaller, and offer less resistance when walking, the front points are also in horizontal and will provide better support in snow.
The more technical crampons are heavier, more rigid, have sharper and longer front point for anchoring in hard Ice.
Looking at your perspective to go out ice climbing, this would be a key point to choose the Lynx as it performs much better in Ice.
We sincerely hope these fact provide answers to your question.
