For the steep and slick.
Those "casual" crampons aren't worth much once you start hiking steep, icy terrain. Taking a nod from technical climbing crampons, the Kahtoola KTS Steel Crampon straps to hiking boots so you can conquer rugged conditions throughout winter. The biggest difference between this crampon and climbing crampons is the Leafspring Flex Bar that lets your hiking boot bend and flex like it's supposed to. The spikes have a steel construction to stay sharp, reliable, and free of rust after heavy use.

Great hiking crampon
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have had the same pair of Kahtoola KTS crampons for over ten years. I have hiked hundreds of miles with them throughout the mountain west on some of the the most difficult terrain. They have never let me down and do not show any signs of failing. One of the best gear purchases I have made, they are lightweight, easy to put on and comfortable. If you you are looking for hiking crampons for serious terrain then I recommend these, the Kahtoola KTS, you will not be sorry.
