Ski/ running shoe pon

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of the 390s and a pair of 490s. For non technical snow and flatter ice they are perfect. 390 mount fits most ski boots, which is a nice change and they're light enough you don't notice the weight. Paired with most running shoes the 490s make any approach shoe system glacier ready as well for big alpine rock objectives in the summer.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

From a wall of crampon choices this is the one crampon I use most fo the spring and summer for moderate objectives in my TLTs and mountain boots. My go to lwt crampon now for a few years. They have some limitations. Just pay attention and stay off the rocks and scree with them and they alast a long time on stiff boots.

Camp XLC

Good lightweight crampon. That is light to carry for ski touring and ski moutaineering trips.

Fits well over ski touring boots.

I have the Kayland Hyper boots. I am looking to buy these for those trips when you are not sure if you are going to need crampons or not. I will not be climbing anything too aggressive. Is the Hyper stiff enough for these crampons?

Responded on

The reviews for that boot say they work well with automatic crampons. These crampons should work well for your boots and intended use.

has anyone tried putting these on lange...

has anyone tried putting these on lange RX 130s? Thanks

Responded on

I haven't put them on the Langes but I use them regularly on my Dynafit Titans and my Dynafit TLT5s so I think they could accomodate those pretty easily.

Great Lightweight Crampon

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

I use this for general ski mountaineering and its a great fit, even handled some vertical ice. I use these as my go to crampons but would pick up some steel ones to take on more extended serious trips.

I have the 490s. Thought a ultralight pair of 12 points could be cool. Loaded them up with the rest of the gear the night before. Pulled them out to when I hit ice. The front plastic toe harness was broken. Splinted them w/ duck tape, but never felt solid on that foot. Turned a moderate approach into a sketchy situation. I'll be returning them and I do not recommend them. Never broke a pair of Black Diamond crampons.
