The Air Tech front points well and is wonderful on traverses. Great for general mountaineering and steep trails.
They are a very versatile crampon that with the right boot, can handle short pitches of vertical ice up to WI 3, though there are much better choices for vertical ice, like the G22.
I want to add some info regarding fitting to double boots. I just got a pair of Koflach Arctis Expe. The Air Tech will not fit (size 9UK). The standard bars are ONE HOLE too short. Longer bars are needed for, at least, these boots, and I'd suspect most other doubles.
