Crampons

Whether you’re strolling on glacier, groveling up an icy chimney or redpointing a sketchy mixed route, crampons are an essential connection between you and the frozen medium. Crampons need to be both high performance for solid, confidence-inspiring purchase on ice, snow and rock, and durable to withstand years of rough treatment.

Performance: The horizontal structure of the frame brings the boot sole as close to the crampon as possible for increased sensitivity and precision. The number, length and position of the points have been designed to insure optimal strength and purchase on ice, snow and rock.

Durability: The steel Petzl uses for its crampons is specially selected for its durability and strength characteristics. Using such high quality steel allows the crampons to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength. A special electroplating process is applied to the crampons to increase durability and maximize showshedding characteristics.

Fit and adjustment: With five types of binding system to choose from, it is easy to get the right fit no matter what type of boot you are using: from thick welts to thin welts to no welts at all. The linking bar can be adjusted to the half-size without tools.

Durable, bi-density polymer ANTISNOW plates are included on all crampons to help prevent snow balling in almost all snow conditions.
