Versatile, fully-adjustable, and inexpensive, the G10 will take you up no matter what.
Grivel designed its G10 Crampon for a wide range of uses whether you're mountaineering, ski touring, trekking, traveling across glaciers, or keeping an extra pair for a beginning buddy. Made with Cro-Moly steel, the G10 is lightweight and flexible so it won't add much weight to your pack on an alpine adventure. Its New-Classic attachment system is so easy that Grivel debated whether or not it needed instructions. All you have to do is open the durable Zytel Dupont plastic harness, slide your boot in, and secure it tightly with one pull. This aspect, along with the inexpensive price, makes the G10 an excellent crampon for beginners and experts.
Another fantastic feature on the G10 is the Active anti-balling system. This system clears snow from your foot every step you make so you get maximum traction on every slippery slope and security when you need it most. With two front points and minimal points underneath the G10, this crampon will suit children and others with smaller feet who don't require as many points as big-footed people. The G10 is fully adjustable thanks to its flex bar, but it doesn't fold over on itself when it comes time to stash it in your pack.

Looking for some crampons to wear with my (women's size 10) snowboard boots - will these work? Thanks!
These are made to fit a size 46 boot. Your boots should be fine even with the extra thickness of being a snowboard boot.

How is the "walkability" in these? I am between these and the Grivel Air Techs. I want something that can handle occasional technical obstacles and icy trails in the Adirondack High Peaks. Like 30 to 70 degree trails to man sized boulders and ice floes to 10 foot vertical ice-covered rock scrambles.

So it looks like these are the way to go for fitting a good crampon on a snowboard boot. My question is,I have size 10 32's. So pretty standard size 10 boot. Should I go for the wide? Or does the standard new classic have enough adjustibility to fit that heel in there?
that can depend on which model of boot you have. If you have the ultralights standard will be fine. If you have wider boot like the teamtwo's you will want the wide. I am sending you an email to help you get the fit on these dialed in.

Get the clip for ski boots
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The new-classic did not work well with regular alpine ski boots 325 BSL - overall length was a little short and straps came loose over time. Not sure how the new-matic would fit. I replaced with BD contact clips and they are a thousand times better.

whats the difference between the new-matic and the new-classic strapping style on the GRIVEL g-10 cramp-ons..
Will one be better to fit over snowboard boots in comparison to the other?
Thanks for your question. The New Classic is the variant you want for fitting the G10 Crampons over snowboard boots. The heel connecting piece is what differs between the two. With the New-matic you have a hard metal bar that does not conform to the heel.
Grivel designed the New classic so that if can accommodate wider heels on boots such as snowboard boots. so I would go for those!
Fits and works well

Just because the winter snowpack is turning into solid corn and the resorts are closed, it doesn't mean you have to put the board away until next winter. As a snowboarder, there aren't too many options when it comes to snowboard crampons but that's okay because these work well. I have size 12 boots and the wide version crampons fit although it's definitely towards the end of its rope lengthwise. Getting them on is very straightforward so no complaints there. This past September I climbed the Middle Teton Glacier in GTNP to get my september turns and these allowed me to just march straight up the steep, icy, firm glacier. I will say that front pointing wasn't as secure as I would have liked but I think that is due to having a soft boot, not necessarily the crampon's fault. Something to consider when snowboard mountaineering. Time to start climbing!
