Dynafit Quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are superbly well made ski crampons. They are light and robust, so don’t weigh your pack down when not in use. Harscheisen are an essential part of your ski touring set up and should last you for the life of your bindings.

I recommend getting a size wider than your skis so there is space either side for the teeth without them rubbing on the skis. In other words, go for the 100mm if your ski is 90mm wide, and so on.

As always, it is a quality bit of gear from Dynafit.

works with any dynafit compatible bindin

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

using these on Salomon MTN tech binding (which are same at Atomic tech binding). Works perfectly and the Dynafit crampon has good availability and in good size range so you can matchy-matchy as needed with your narrow, light planks or your monster powder boards.

necessity

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are a necessity for ski-mountaineering any time of the year and for general touring in late winter and spring when sunny slopes are crusted early in the morning. Huge increase in both efficiency and safety while skinning icy slopes. As they only weigh a couple ounces, throwing a pair of these in your pack is a no-brainer!

One tip - you can use a crampon that's quite a bit wider than your ski with no real downsides performance-wise, so buy one to fit the widest ski in your quiver, and you should have no issues using it on your narrower skis.

Works with the other AT bindings!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ski tour with the Atomic Backland and Salomon MTN bindings, and I'm happy to report that thse ski crampons work well with both! these bad boys are a must have for spring ski touring when the slopes may become too icy to grip your skins but you aren't ready to switch over to booting. Lightweight and easy to use.

Do Yourself a Favor...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are a life-saver! The only way to do spring approaches... I've watched too many friends lose traction and take scary slides down frozen skin tracks (or mountains). Do yourself a favor and throw a pair of these in your pack!

Always in the bottom of the bag.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After a few nasty experiences on icy slopes of death, I usually keep a pair of ski crampons in my pack just in case. They make a huge difference and it feels like you can walk up just about anything! Super light so it doesn't take much to bring them along and easy to insert into your bindings even if you're on a sketchy slope.

Essential

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ski crampons are essential in the Tetons and I very rarely ever travel without them. This crampon is incredibly easy to use and light. A simple light piece of gear that can really make or break a day.

Wish I had these

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

Probably the scariest moment I had in the backcountry last season was skinning across a very steep icy slope. Every movement felt like my edge could give out and I would be sent sliding toward the cliff edge below. After that experience I told myself I would buy some ski crampons. Haven't tried them yet, but I look forward to using them and having the extra confidence and security. They are also really light and very packable.

Essential touring gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ski crampons are essential touring gear in maritime or shallow snowpacks. They provide security and stability on firm snow, ice and crust when skins do not provide enough traction. Also help with steeper skin tracks.

light and grips

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They are super light. They slide on to my older dynafits very easily (and also dont come out on their own). They assist on those super icy skinners and have certainly come in handy many times. The only negative is they wont work with the high heel riser as there is nothing to force the crampon into the snow. Maybe something can be created to insert on top of the crampon to put some space between the boot and the crampon to force the crampon into the snow?

Either way, this is a great piece of equipment you should prob have for those big springtime tours.

Critical piece of kit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is essential for spring touring and variable conditions. Slipping down the skin track is a fast way to embarrassment and frustration.
These crampons slip into the slot with ease and will grab and keep you moving upward.
Just make sure you buy large enough. There is zero flex in these. a 110mm will NOT fit a 110mm ski.
Size up or buy more than one...

Light & Fast

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They slide on my Speed Turns 2.0's very easily and provide all of the grip I need for the hard way up or the sphincter clenching traverse. I have adequate grip through the mid height setting on my heel risers.

light and grippy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

they fit super well on Dynafit radical bindings, small and easy to pack, grip well on icy slopes. ONE BIG CON: you CANT use them with heel risers! because your foot doesnt drive them into the ice when you step on your riser rather than ski. Come on Dynafit! There are some adjustments that can be made to fix that but it would be nice to have that problem eliminated sometime soon, Dynafit!

I bought these to go with my Dynafit Rotation 12 bindings.. and they do not fit into the slot. I figured that they should be compatible and fit. Is there something I can do? Do i need to file off some of the metal so that they fit into the slot?

Unanswered Question

Are these compatible with a Marker Kingpin? Need a 120mm ski crampon but that size isn't available from Marker. Have heard the Dynafits fit well.

what size fits a G3 Fever ski?

So I believe that the dimensions if that ski are 132/100/123 so you will need the Black 110mm. The reason I say that is because the crampon will sit forward of the portion of the ski that is measured at 100mm. The further forward the wider the ski. Even if the area under the crampon clip was measured to be 100mm I dont think the 5mm gap (per side) would cause an issue. You wouldn't want to cut it too close with the 100mm orange crampon and have rubbing issues.

Will the 100 mm ski crampon fit on a 100 mm (atomic century) ski? Or is my best option to get the 110 mm ski crampon?

Best Answer

I would grab both. I will provide a free shipping label back for the one that does not fit. To be honest the 100mm might work but, the true center waist of the ski is not where you mounted your binding so it could be like 101mm where the crampon will sit. Obviously you want to get away with the 100mm but, I would put a free shipping label on it that you actually need the 110mm.

Spacers?

In my two previous setups, I have always used B&D crampons. The nice thing about B&D is they have spacers so that they will have more purchase into the snow when the riser is up. See attached picture.

Those two holes on these Dynafit bindings seem to be designed for spacers. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket spacers for them?

Best Answer

I found a write up on Wild Snow https://www.wildsnow.com/1813/wide-ski-crampons/. They took some pieces from an old binding and made a spacer but, Dynafit has never put spacers on their crampons.

How big is too big? I would like to have one crampon to go on all my skies, but would there be any negatives to having too much space? For example a 120mm on a 90 mm ski?

Best Answer

Ideally you want the ski crampon to only be as wide as necessary to span the ski. Having a big gap (example 120mm crampon on a 90mm ski) puts a lot of torque on the crampon/binding toe interface, especially when side-hilling. This could damage or break the slot where the crampon attaches.



I think you could get away with 120mm crampon on a 110mm ski but I would definitely NOT recommend 120mm for a 90mm ski.

i ride a jones solution 168w splitboard, but with phantom bindings and with tlt6 mountain boot. the board is 26.5.cm so each ski is 132.5mm, does the 130mm fit or do i need 140mm?

I bought these crampons to use with my radicals ST's. The space on the hooks on the binding are too tight for the crampon to slide in. Has anyone else has this problem and know of a solution?

Yeah they can be tough to slide in. I actually broke mine because it was so tough and I put my foot down on them by accident. You can take a drummel file and remove just a little bit of the metal, that is the fix I have heard of, never tried it, I just gave up on them.

How much clearance is necessary? Does a...

How much clearance is necessary? Does a 108mm crampon work smooth on a 108mm waist ski? Thanks for your insight.

It will likely be too tight. The interior dimension of the crampon is 108mm. The area that they rotate over the ski may be slightly more than 108 if the narrowest point on the ski is 108. They are also pretty stiff, so bending is not really an option. I'd size up to be sure.
