Have Freeride Pros on BD Voodoo skis / BD Method boots. They attach very easily and solidly to the binding. Fairly easy to deploy and retract using ski pole tips and a couple pushes/pulls with the basket - on the go. The cleats only extend a couple of cm below the skis when on the highest heel setting of the binding, so not a lot of bite going directly up a steep slope when heels are set high. But I have found that these crampons REALLY do the trick during traverses and generate great stability during kick turns. My only concern was that I got a 110 mm set only because my ski waist (88 mm) would not accommodate an 86 mm set. Once I got them I couldn't see how an 86 mm set would work for most adult folks as the cleat(when retracted) on an 86 mm pair seems would have dug into the bottom of my boot. Have about a 1/2 cm gape between the boot outer edge and the cleat. Don't know - just glad I got the wider ones.

I bought these at the end of last season (2011) and used them the end of last year and this season. Have used them about 50/50 on and off the slopes. While I am not an aggressive skier - and I weigh 155# - I have taken them up and down a few mountains and on multiple day treks. they have done fine - no breakage. Very easy to change heel settings with ski pole ends and have a really good feel/motion doing diagonal stride. I have them on BD VooDoo skis and they work well on the slopes as well. Have also bought the Diamir crampons that that connect direclty to the binding and they are super together. Really do the trick during traverses and steep kick turns. I was concerned after reading the reviews about the toe piece breaks, but so far - no issues. I have a buddy who bought them as well and he does quite a bit of aggressive AT work and he likes them as well.
