Unanswered Question

Looking for a crampon to serve both AT ski needs and dedicated ice climbing. Realize these are probably overkill for approach traction, but the more aggressive front points are more attractive for true climbing than something like Sabretooths. Am I on right track or heading for trouble? TIA!

Unanswered Question

Reid, referencing your comment below. Will the Cyborg perform poorly on regular mountaineering routes like Rainier? Was thinking this could be an all round crampon. Thanks, Craig

Best Answer

Hey Dragisa,
Yes the Pro version will fit your boot. From personal experience the Cyborg is way over kill for mountaineering. Its more made for technical ice climbing.
I would suggest the BD Sabretooth Pro crampon. It will weigh less and still preform very well on both vertical ice and glacier travel.

easy to fit, put on, use. Great crampons!

So Stable!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used a lot of crampons over the years, from Alpine slogging crampons like the BD Contact Pro to Mixed Master Monopoint crampons like the BD Stingers but never have I felt so stable as when I was getting after some steep Ice in these! The Dual Vertical Front Point configuration was absolutely a game changer for me. After feeling unstable and wobbly climbing waterfall ice with the Stingers (they're really for mixed climbing) stepping into the Cyborgs and kicking into hard, steep ice and feeling the stability and penetration of the dual points was mind-blowing. For the dedicated Ice climber who doesn't see themselves venturing too much onto Mixed terrain I can't recommend a better pair of 'pons!

So Stable!

Great Crampons

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

excellent crampons. it would be neat if it didnt require cutting the base plate to switch to monopoint. its an intended use, so why not just build in the space for it when its made?

Climb anything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this crampon for our Beginner Ice climbing course and its an excellent choice.

The Toe Pins are so long that even the worst noob has been able to climb confidently.

The only drawback is that the Toe Bail doesn't fit larger boots like Double plastic Koflachs.

Burlier than the old ones

These newer versions of the Cyborgs are way tougher than the old ones ( I broke both heal clips and a toe bail on those) plus the heal clip on the stainless ones are designed so one can pull on the strap to release them from your boot with out breaking the plastic. These are VERY good for the price considering how many parts I had to replace on the old ones. Buy 'em up!

wait is that Ginger Snaps down there?.....

I love the cyborg pros. They stick so well in a variety of ice and fit great on my mont blancs. They're easy to adjust the sizing and can be converted to a mono-point like the stinger. Awesome crampons!

What a hunk of metal. Bites well in the hardest of ices. Love the monopoint option on the frigid days. Love the hood on the points too. Buy this bad boy and never regret it.

Hi. What kind of center bar does the BD...

Hi. What kind of center bar does the BD Cyborg Pro have? Flex or Rigid?

rigid bars ...but they flex between heel and toe from the sloppy fit..

Hard and so good

Hard and so good

I use them on ice and on dry-tooling in the summer. thay r very hard and so r great!

I'm stuck between buying the sabretooths...

I'm stuck between buying the sabretooths and the cyborgs. My old sabretooths are totally blunt and tiny so can't really compare them currently - I've been climbing about Scottish grade 4 mixed or ice, but I'll be using them on longer alpine routes too. Is it worth the upgrade or shall I just buy more sabres for the longer stuff?

On long alpine routes the sabretooths will fill more stable. but if you going for a lot of mix/ice the cyborg is the god of the climb...
what r you going to do the MOST "long alpine routes"=sabretooths, or mix=cyborg

Confidence Inspiring

Easy sticks and front points that fit into ice tool divots. What's not to love? These attach securely to boots and they don't ball up underfoot. I don't climb like a pro, but these make the most of my limited ability.
