Will these work with Scarpa Hurricane Boots?

which crampon would you recommend for a la sportiva spantik size 47?
You'll want to go with the Sabretooth Pro http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-sabretooth-pro-crampon?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6c2FicmV0b290aDoxOjE as it has a more secure connection than the Clip version. It will work better with your Spantiks. For a size 47 you may be creeping into long bar territory but I would probably try the standard bar before dropping any coin on the extended bar.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This crampon is a little heavy but you can feel the toughness of the crampons when you bash them through hard ice and into rocks. The only trouble I had was one of the rivets holding the toe U bale came off. Just Duct Taped it back together to get through the trip. I am sure BD will warranty them for me. These are best for mountaineering setting may want something lighter more technical for tougher ice conditions, only used them on 55 degree ice and rock nothing steeper.

I have a pair of Zamberlan 760 Steep GT boots. I am planning a North Cascades backpacking trip which will involve one day of a climb up a glacier and descent down a steep snowfield. Will these crampons work on these boots?
I also wear the Steeps, and since they don't have either a toe or heel welt, they won't take any crampons except strap-ons. If you want to stay with Black Diamond, the Contact is the one to use.

Will these work on the La Sportiva Pamir men's?
They should definately work. I have the sabretooths and they fit several of my boots. The back heel has a pretty versatile adjuster and should work well.
Sure footing...for sure!
Got the chance to use these a few times last winter up in the White Mountains. These are awesome, I felt so sure with my footing above the treeline with these. I love them. Easy to get on and adjustable.
Love these crampons!
I've used these crampons on both my backcountry ski boots and my climbing boots. They are really strong, reliable, and easy to put on!

I have a La Sportiva Nepal EVO GTX boots.
I need a pair of crampons to climb Mont Blanc and Elbrus. Which one is recommended for them?
These are a good choice, as well as Grivel's Air Tech.
I would suggest, though, that you google "Black Diamond stainless steel crampons breaking"and do a little reading before making up your mind.
These will be a great all round crampon for pretty much any mountain. However, I wouldn't recommend the Air Tech as they're aluminum so they won't be as durable. If you're going to be spending money on crampons, invest in a solid pair of of stainless (Black Diamonds) or chromly (Grivel, Petzl). But like Pat mentioned, read up on both the materials as they both have their pros and cons.

Yup, they will work indeed. Here are the long bars:

For non alpine work, say upper east coast winter trail hiking inAsolo Fugtive GTX's, (I kno this is nt a moutaineering boot ndI would not use it as such),would these crampons work well with this boot and for this type of activity?
These crampons will not work since they have a heel clip and your boots do not have the required heel bail. You will need a full strap crampon like the BD Contact straps. However, I also use these boots and would highly recommend getting flex bars to replace the standard center bars. Or, check out the CAMP stalkers. I use those with my fugitives and they work great (those come with flex bars, a carry case, and are cheaper!).
Will these work with the Asolo TPX 520 GV?...
Will these work with the Asolo TPX 520 GV? Or do I need to use the contact strap?
No these crampons will not work. You're boots do not have the required heel bail and for that reason you're going to need full strap crampons. The contact straps will work great on these boots.

Would these crampons work with the Salomon Quest boot? If not, which crampons would?
I assume you are talking about the Quest hiking boot? These boots are very flexible and do not work well with crampons but the strap style will work such as these:
I would suggest the Microspikes unless you are doing technical climbs.
You poblably need something like a contact strap

Are these likely to fit ok to the Kayland Hypertraction Mountaineering Boot?
Yes, they will. Be sure to get the right size for your boots.
Easy on AT Boots
Simple review here. These fit my 27.5 dynafit zzeus boots perfect. Easy to put on and take off. Gives you the right confidence when on and when your moving. Great for ski mountaineering. Perfect for me.
Hi, Im after some crampons that will fit...
Hi, Im after some crampons that will fit a size 23.5 garmont ski boot, does anyone know if these are appropriate - or go this small? 265mm sole length...
These should go small enough. The center bar may stick out a bit on the heel...but you can just cut it off with a hack saw and save a little weight.
Hi, I'm interested in these because I think...
Hi, I'm interested in these because I think they would work with the Scarpa Triolet Pro in the summer, but I'm wondering whether they would also work with my Garmont Adrenaline ski-mountainnering boots (size 11.5)?
They should work just fine for both. Great crampons.
Preferred over BD's Sabretooth Pro
Truly excellent design and feel. I love these crampons! Highly adjustable, fast to put on, light in the pack, and super solid. I prefer them over BD's Pro version, but mostly because I wear Scarpa Mont Blanc boots, which give room for lateral movement of the Pro's foreplate. The Clip version is more solidly in place on a variety of boots and still has the tenacious grip of the Pros. I can frontpoint in these very effectively, as well as French technique on icy slopes. The strap attachment is simple and effective. Mixed climbing is just fine because they fit my boot so well. I would highly recommend these as a solid pair of "do all" 'pons. Thank you Black Diamond!
I use them in Sweden in the winter. they fill hard and good. thay dont move a bit "on" the boots. they are so not flexible you can put your life on them!
