It's nice to have Petzl's ultralight Leopard FL Crampon packed when the mountaineering adventure is long and the snow travel is short.This all-aluminum keeps the weight to a minimum and traction to a maximum when you're relying on the ten points to keep you upright on icy traverses. Petzl's Cord-Tec flexible linking system reduces volume when packed away, and the tool-free length adjustment assures a secure fit. This strap-on crampon is compatible with any hike or approach shoe without welts at the toe or heel.

Solid Lightweight Campon for skiing

I've put it through the wringer

I bought the LLF version of these for my Ski boots, it doesn't appear that Backcountry carries this version anymore so I'll leave a review for these. First off these crampons are super light making them easy to pack and almost unnoticeable in your pack. The corderd section in the middle may seem flimsy and sketchy but they are super bomber. I have used these on 5 trips this summer in everything from deep snow to vertical hardpack to sharp rocks without any worry that they'll come off. These all aluminum crampons are designed for snow travel. My latest trip involved a 500' climb up a bulletproof couloir. I felt super sketchy while my partners climbed up without any worry. I'll be upgrading the front section to the steel SARKENS just for extra purchase on the early morning spring snow.

Innovative, light, and compact crampon

I've put it through the wringer

Many's the time I wish I had a crampon like this and didn't because they were just too darn heavy or I didn't have the room to carry them. Petzl really has come up with an innovative and very light weight crampon perfect for my needs that solves both those problems. I was first introduced to these on an early spring traverse of the Enchantment Lakes and I felt a lot more comfortable in them than did my buddies in their micro spikes. They are super easy to adjust and once you get used to the flexibility very easy to don. I can put them on using the second method shown in the instruction manual where the adjustment strap runs under the dyneema cord in about 30 seconds per boot. I use these primarily with La Sportiva Trango Cube boots; that combination is awesome and very confidence inspiring. I have also worn them with Salewa Snow Trainers, Salewa Mountain Trainers, and Zamberlan Vioz and they work very well with all of those boots too. I tried them (in the house) with low top approach shoes and I do not recommend them for use with low top shoes. I don't wear them on dirt or rock and thus the points show no wear. They dyneema cord shows no wear at all - it isn't even fuzzy at wear points. These are not recommended for glacier travel but I climbed Kokanee and Colchuck glaciers using them and felt quite comfortable.

Thanks for the review James!

Snow approaches made simple

I originally put these in my pack when heading out on a route in the Tetons and I haven't taken them out yet. I haven't had to use them, but for as light as these are I might as well keep them in my pack. The amount of stress they relieve is well worth the minimal weight! These crampons are great for those trips best suited for running/approach/hiking shoes, but may have large snow fields you need to contend with. Light enough that if you never need them you won't be kicking yourself for lugging them around and simple enough when its time to don the cram-pon. Initial fitting can take a minute or two to become familiar with, so hit me up directly and I'll walk you through the process.

These do not have anti-balling plates or skins. Have you had any problems with snow building up?

" I haven't had to use them" - then this is an useless review, typical for the consumerist people with closets full of gear ...


I'm interested to know where this is made? Thank you!

They are made in France. Thanks for the great question!


What is the length of the spikes on these? @JimmyElam


Does this product come with a bag to store the crampon in?

Mine came with a bright orange bag, not sure they denier but certainly no issues so far in my pack!


Is there any way to tell if these crampons will work with the Lowa Cevedale boots? The boots do have a heel welt that works with hybrid crampons, but I love the weight savings. My use is summer cascades volcano climbing. Nothing technical, pretty much snow and icy snow. Thank you.
