    Superlight security for slippery ski terrain.

    Step your ski boots into Petzl's Leopard LLF Crampon when the tour gets steep and icy. This superlight crampon helps prevent you from slipping and sliding down the entire mountain, and it's super compact for easy packing. Its Leverlock Fil binding accommodates most ski boots and other boots with step-in compatibility. The Cord-Tec flexible linking system folds the crampon in half for easier packing.

    My new favorite piece of gear.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was skeptical of the Dyneema, but after using these about ten time this spring/summer, I couldn't be happier. I'd never try to use them for ice, but for even the firmest skiing conditions, they've worked flawlessly. I'm not sure if I'm more impressed by the light weight or small pack size.The perfect ski mountaineering crampon.

    Crampon went M.I.A. during first use

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

    I love the concept of this lightweight, packable setup and used them for my first time this last Sunday on an easy ascent of the Worm Flows on Mt. St. Helens. I only used them near the summit and ended up losing one early into the descent as I hiked down a snowfield. I made sure that everything was as tight as can be beforehand and continually checked during the climb because I was paranoid of the dyneema stretching and falling off. So it was a shock when we stopped for a short breather and my cousin asked "where's your other crampon?" Eff me! Not sure where it popped off or why. I do know that the leash/ankle strap could be made of some static webbing instead of the flimsy elastic it currently comes with and that would have at least kept me from losing an expensive-ass crampon. Glad it was an easy descent from there and not an icy couloir or rimed-up ridge, as that would have been a far more serious situation. These crampons are not very secure. 2 stars since they worked nicely on the way up.
    UPDATE: Petzl is sending me a new set of 'pons for free as a replacement. I worked with the Petzl rep to troubleshoot why the crampon fell off in the first place, but we were unable to determine the cause. Great customer service, but the next time I use the crampons I'll be checking the tension of the dyneema constantly.

    The search is over!

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

    I have been searching for a lightweight crampon for quite some time, and finally found the perfect match. It does take a little bit to get the crampons dialed with your ski boots, but once you do, this is exactly what you need for moving fast and light in the mountains. They are feather light, and secure once you have them dialed in!

    Light but Unreliable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These crampons pack down very small and are very light, which got me excited. However, after using them, I am incredibly disappointed. Do not rely on these staying secure to your ski boot and do not trust them in a steep icy couloir. I had to continually readjust and fit them back on my ski boot while climbing. No matter how tight I got them to my ski boot, on 3 separate ascents, the crampon just likes to pop off the ski boot every 10-15 steps, mid climb.

    Perfect Ski-Mountaineering crampon

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my go-to crampons whenever I am venturing out on the skis and in more technical terrain (especially if a boot pack or ice is involved). They are exactly what I need, no more/no less. Love the lightweight and durable design, especially for the longer days or when wanting to move quickly. Confidence level with these is high and have 0 doubts in this piece of my gear.

    Absolutely awesome

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I don't always write gear reviews. But when I do, I prefer to write about gear I absolutely love...

    This truly is a game-changing crampon. I used it with ski boots on long day tours. It is so light that you will never think twice about bringing it along, and you will never notice having it in your pack.

    I was somewhat concerned about the attachment system and lack of a metal bar, but the cord works beautifully. It will stretch a little, so you will need to readjust it (probably once) as Petzl's instructions state. After that, it never moved at all. I used it on a range of angles, including frontpointing on frozen snow, and it was bomber.

    Even though it doesn't have the feel of a 12-point steel crampon, I never had any concerns about slipping, and it performed admirably. My only slight worry was about wearing down the aluminum when switching frequently from snow to rock and back, but with a little creativity I was able to avoid most of it. They come on and off very quickly, so if you have to take them off, it's not the end of the world.

    There are some pieces of gear that transform the game. For skimo, this is one of them. Petzl has nailed it with this crampon! Unless you plan to spend a lot of your time on harder ice or use them on rock, the Leopard is the real deal...

    The only choice for skimo

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Insanely lite. These go on fast with the buckle and toe bail. If you look at what most guides who are in the mountains every day are carrying for aluminum ski mountaineering crampons it's these.

    Super Light - Not Super Secure

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

    I've used these crampons for two mountaineering trips now. On the first trip I really appreciated the light weight and ease of putting them on and had no complaints. On the more recent trip, maybe it had to do with the dry snow conditions, but they wouldn't grab into steep snow in a way I felt comfortable with. I wish that the rear points on the toe piece were oriented perpendicular to the foot to give better front-to-back traction, especially when the snow is steep enough that you can only use the front half of your foot. On a separate note, the cord is showing a little abrasion, but I'm still optimistic about it overall. I still like these crampons and will definitely keep using them for certain occasions, but I no longer feel like they are a do-it-all tool and will consider using more serious steel 12-point crampons for mountaineering in the future.

    Super Light - Not Super Secure

    Crampons you actually will carry

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used these all last season, and they worked great for there intended purpose. They easily adjusted to my Salomon MTN Lab boots, and are a piece of cake to easy to put on. Because of their easy of use, and packability I carry them on most outings. Well worth the investment.

    Game Changing Crampon

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used these throughout my travels last season and could not be more impressed with the lightness, compactness and ease of use of this crampon. In the pack, it took up what felt like a quarter the space of normal crampons. On the feet, it felt like half the weight of normal crampons. Considering how much crap a ski mountaineering excursion takes, the size and weight savings not only was nice, it truly makes the day more enjoyable. The dyneema cord-tec seems like a point of weakness but was told that Ueli Steck's 82 alps summits in 82 days, through ice, snow and rock, were done on the Leapords and the cords didn't even have a nic on them. If you're a skier that uses crampons, I couldn't recommend these more. I personally could never go back to traditional style crampons after a season on these.

    The Best Snow Ski Crampon - No Excuse

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently had the opportunity to use these to climb and ski some Volcanoes in southern Chile - They above and beyond exceeded my already high expectations.

    When I first got my hands on them, two thoughts.

    1. So light. They are easily the lightest crampons I've ever known and are first class for a non-rando-competition crampon.

    2. Packability. They pack down super small, they come with a really durable, but easy to pack with gloves on, carrying case. They can be folded and shoved in this bag and closed up simply. No hassle, no zippers. The bag is beefy enough where I was not worried about the points tearing holes in anything.

    They handled tremendously on the boiler plate, iced up, and wind buffed flanks of Lonquimay - our volcano objective. I was able to front point, flat foot, and side step up steep bulletproof and feel totally confident.

    The dyneema adjustments are super simple and easy to adjust on the fly. The first few times using the crampons the cord needed to "break in" so I made sure to put the crampons on super tight the first day - and by the end of the day they were a little loose. I tightened them just a bit more and now they fit perfectly - with zero slop.

    The strap and clip are simple and easy - and kept the crampon attached to my boot the one time they did come undone while breaking in.

    Thanks to Petzl, I now have zero excuses to not bring crampons and now those objectives are a little more approachable!

    Climb on!

    The Best Snow Ski Crampon - No Excuse

    wish they were 12 point... sometimes a ten point crampon does not make enough point contact with frozen snow... think sunups/sastrugi... adding two points would be negligible in terms of additional weight, but makes a big difference in security...
