Description

Lightweight, glove-friendly crampon for getting a grip on hard uphill tracks.

Clip the G3 Onyx Ski Crampon onto your Onyx alpine touring bindings when the skin track turns into a wind-blown icy slope of death near the ridge. The tough, lightweight aluminum crampon clips securely onto your G3 Onyx Binding (sold separately) after you screw the included screws into your binding’s toe piece. The crampon pivots with your strides to allow easy uphill skinning and then bites down into the ice and hardpack under your toe for a grip even the best skins cannot provide. To unclip, reach down and pull on the release cable with your gloved hand, and then toss the crampon into your pocket or pack.

Solid after the first season

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for use with the g3 onyx binding. The crampons attach easily and securely. With a bit of practice you can also install and remove them with your toes still locked in while in tour mode. I actually keep them handy in my pack and will put them on for relatively short icy sections as it is better than the alternatives. They give a great deal of purchase and allow you to bite down into icy snow. Highly recommend.

What's the downside of going really wide...

What's the downside of going really wide with these? I've never used ski crampons but have been a few places lately where they seemed like the would have helped. Current skis are around 88mm waist, but I would like to get some fatter skis in the future. What's the downside of using the 130mm crampon on 88mm skis for the present time?

Best Answer Responded on

Despite being pretty stiff, the downside could be a loss of torsional stability (and hold) when only one side of the crampon is engaged on a side hill or traverse.

thanks for the answer - are these going to help for the in-between steep terrain - i.e. where it gets a little steep for skinning, but using actual crampons adds a bit of time and effort I'd rather skip if possible? Or if it's too steep for skinning, it's probably too steep for these? I'm trying to figure if these are worth it for the couple of times a year I encounter that kind of terrain where I am (the east).

Icy December....

Once the screws are installed into the the toe piece...It is easy and quick to install (on and off) Great tool as of late.... Due to the lack of snow! (Coast Mountains British Columbia)

Will the 85 mm crampon work on a ski with an 88 mm waist? Maybe with a little bending? Next largest size I've seen is 105 mm, not currently for sale.

Responded on

Maybe, but usually not with great results. The ski edges might get a little torn up and the crampon will go in at a slight angle, making it less effective. I would measure the area of the ski its going to contact though...sometimes the specs aren't exact and you might be able to make it work.

The crampon body is pretty stiff. You are much better off getting the 105mm. They should be available in a few weeks.

Easy install with and without gloves.

No-brainer to install. Easy on and off with and without gloves. Will update with more use.
