- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have had these crampons for a year and have used them on everything from WI5 routes to clawing my way up mixed routes and alpine summits. Pretty heavy, but they are indestructible. After a several hundred feet of alpine rock and mixed the teeth are still pretty damn sharp.
Not sure what the reviewer below is referring too in having to remove the anti-bailing plate to adjust, the crampons are easy to adjust by just lifting up the lever. Having the ability to run these in several different front point configurations is nice. If you are solely climbing steep water ice get the Blade Runners, however if you need a do-all crampon the c14 is a great choice.
Just fine fer a horse-tooth
I like these crampons. Got a great deal on em and I am pleased. Link up real nice to LS nepal evo, then again any crampon will sit tight on the nepal evos it seems. Haven't yet used them with other boots, but there are multiple adjustment points and will fit a large range of sizes. The ABS plates are a little chincy plastic and the rear must be removed to adjust the length of the bar but no biggy. These have been good so far. Rigid yet do allow walking, feel very stable. bite well. Comparable to BD cyborg or equivalent grivels imo.

I need replacement front points for my C14 Cassin. Do you have them? Happy new year.
I am sorry to say we do not currently carry the replacement front points for the CAMP USA - Cassin C14 Crampon.

How small a boot will these fit? I wear a US ladies 7.5 (about a euro 39) and am wondering if these will stay on. Any help appreciated.
Yes, they'll fit fine.
Has anyone ever put these on tele boots...
Has anyone ever put these on tele boots for vertical ice climbing?
Well, the short answer is maybe. Regular crampon toe bails (with a few rare exceptions) don't fit over the wide duck bill on the front of telemark boots. Some companies like Petzl make replacement toe bails designed specifically for telemark boots, but I can't find any indication that Cassin makes a similar attachment. However, nearly all toe bails attach the same way, so you may be able to get away with using the Petzl bails on these crampons, but I'm not positive. Anyone? To address the vertical ice part of the questionsYou won't get the same performance as you would with actual climbing boots, or even close. Putting crampons on tele boots is generally a ski mountaineering move. The problem is that the duck bill will cover part of the front points and you won't get very good penetration no matter how hard you kick into the ice. You can definitely climb this way, but if you want to get serious about ice climbing, just get some ice climbing boots.
