Not what it says it is!

This is no longer than the bar that your crampons will come with. The guy on the website said it would be longer for sure but it surely is not. My crampons are useless without a longer bar.

Pretty sure the 160 is just a replacement bar. Only the 190 is listed as "long" when you select the size.

What's the difference between these and the Grivel Valter Long Bar? I have some size 46/12 Lowa 8000 meter expedition boots I'm planning to take to Denali's West Buttress and my normal G12s (with back snap clip and front strap) don't quite extend long enough. I thought the 190cm length in the flex version would be good for the majority of low angle glacier travel we will see on the Denali expedition... But, I also may do some light vertical ice climbing in some of the Wyoming canyons when done with the expedition and I don't know if the "flex/suspension" would be good for that or if it would be fine either way since maybe the stiffness on climbing vertical ice comes from the boot sole and not the crampon heel-toe link?.. Can someone please help?

These are aluminum. They would probably physically fit G12's but are not supposed to be used on G12's.

Are they longer than standard bar that...

Are they longer than standard bar that comes with G12 which was too short for 45.5 Baruntse?

Yes - Grivel offers a long bar and a long flex bar, both of which are longer than an standard bar.

I just bought a pair of G10's and the standard bar was just barely too short for my snowboard boots so I bought the 160mm flex bar and it's actually the same size as the one that came standard with the crampons. If you want to actually increase the length you need to get the 190mm length.
