Whether you’re booting up snowy couloirs or making a quick glacier crossing, the Black Diamond Neve Pro Crampon cuts weight without sacrificing performance. When steel crampons are too much, this 10-point crampon’s aluminum construction trims ounces, while its included ABS plates keep snow from balling underfoot. The Neve Pro also features a step-in front design for use with your ice, telemark, or AT boots.

Works with Scarpa Maestrale

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Good fit overall. I run a size 30.5 boot and am at the limit of the standard bar- last hole.

Solid attachment to Maestrale boot even with the interference between the latch and the boot 's walk/ski mode bar as shown in the picture.

Stellar Crampon for Ski Mountaineering

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Putting on crampons can be a hassle, but the Neve Pro is as simple as it gets. They fit easily over my BD Quadrant touring boots and the strap and closure mechanism are easily adjustable. I've used them for two seasons (10-15 times) and they seem durable. The aluminum construction is lightweight and hardly noticeable in my pack. I felt well grounded when using them on steep (45-50 degree) slopes while ascending mixed snow surfaces. A must have for the ski mountaineer who likes to get out when conditions are less than powder. Probably not formidable enough for extensive front pointing on vertical water ice.

Stellar Crampon for Ski Mountaineering

Perfect for skiers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I owned steel Sabretooth crampons for a few seasons, used them a few times, but often didn't use them because I had left them in the car trying to cut weight out of my pack. Gear you don' t bring is no use at all.

So, I sold them and bought Neves. These are so light I always bring them, and they have been more than enough crampon for getting around anywhere I'm going with skis and whippets.

Perfect for getting up spring corn chutes in the morning while they're still rock hard.....for traversing ice covered wind-blown ridges.....or for doing a few quick front point steps to get over an ice bulge in your line.

Perfect for skiers

Solid lightweight snow crampons

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

They aren't the lightest aluminum crampons, but they are solid enough to inspire confidence and are relatively durable while still dropping a ton of weight from the steel counterparts and have included ABS plates. Fits great on my ski boots. These go in my pack when I expect steep snow or glacier travel but no rock or ice.

Great non technical crampon

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used these on a number of non-technical ski mountaineering routes (hard snow/refrozen snow, up to 55 degrees) and have always loved how they have performed. They are easy enough to place on your feet, work well with ski boots (I have found at times the toe buckles on a ski will get in the way, although not to the point where the crampons slide off or won't fit correctly), and provide great purchase in hard snow.

I've had them up routes like Shasta, Moran, and a number of spring trips in the Wasatch, all of which were hard snow. For hard ice, I go with the Sabretooth Crampons, also from Black Diamond.

In all of the years using these, I have never had anything break.

Fits over ski boots no problem, tele too

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was lucky enough to come by these guys for free, and thus haven't really used them much. But for all you tele skiers out there, I can tell you this: yes, they fit over tele boots no problem. And they make you look way more badass.

Rad Crampons

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are the first crampons i've used and I love them. The two front toe picks stick easily to the ice and feel really secure when I'm climbing. Just be careful where you kick or you will shred your pants, but that goes with any pair of crampons

Rad Crampons

Solid first mountaineering crampon

    I got these for ski mountaineering and they do the job. They are obviously not intended for vertical ice, but I have used them a number of days on steep windblown crust surfaces, ice, and just about any other hard surface you cant sink your feet into. No issues durability wise, but this is still their first season. They are very light and I barely notice they are there. If I could do it again I would probably get a 12 point like the Sabretooth so I could do mixed and vertical.


      I used these on my first trip up Rainier this past August. They performed well and kept my pack light. I chose these over the CAMP equivalent due to the ease of adjusting the length, the metal strap buckle, and the included ABS plates.

      Will these fit a Scarpa T2 Eco tele boot (mondo 31, U.S. 13). Do you think I will have to buy the extended bar. I will be using these mostly on Mount Washington and around the Whites/Adirondacks. I'm pondering between these and the G10's. Thank you!

      Hi Michael!

      Thanks for reaching out to us, great question! These Crampons probably would not be the best pair for what you are describing you will use them for. The Neve's are made of lightweight aluminum and out East you folks tend to get pretty bullet-proof conditions. You would be better served getting the G10 as they are made of Chro-moly Steel and can handle the ice a bit better.

      If you are sold on them then yes you would need the longer center-bar than the stock for your ski boots.

      Unanswered Question

      Does anyone know how they would fit with Scarpa Alien, since the walk/ski lever will 'hit' right at the heel attachment?

      I'm guessing once the crampons were attached you couldn't switch from ski to walk, but maybe that's a moot point?

      Will thus work for general mountaineering, snow/ice terrain? Doing Mt Washington in the fall and I'm needing a pair of crampons for the trip just in case, thanks.

      The Black Diamond Neve Pro Crampons are intended as a light weight general use crampon. They could be used for some light ice climbing, but they are really going to shine for glacier travel and ski mountaineering where you need something durable yet light for long slogs. This should be an excellent pair for the type of climbing Mt Washington may require of you.

      I was wondering if the abs plates on the new neve pro crampons will fit the older models that did not come with them.
