A crampon that changes for you.
Customize Petzl's Lynx Crampon to suit any ice or mixed climb you go on, as well as any boot you want to wear that day. Its Leverlock universal binding accommodates any hybrid hiking with a rear welt, while the Fil or Flex (not included) lets this crampon adapt to mountaineering boots. The front points switch out to a long mono point for dry tooling, long dual points for mixed climbing, or short dual points for ice climbing. The Lynx also features anti-balling Antisnow plates and fourteen points—enough to not give you any excuses.

- Q & A
These crampons fit sportiva boots perfectly. I haven't gotten the chance to stick them in ice yet but the option of dual or mono point is fantastic for suiting your needs or desires. I did try to attach them to the jones touring boot and they didn't fit in the heel. The bail could be bent to accommodate the boots but I doubt you will be front popinting much with snowboard boots so don't do it. Coming with a stash bag is a major plus
4x4 for the ice and snow
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These things are great if you are looking for the ultimate in traction across any scenario. From vertical ice, mixed climbs, to just general glacier travel, these are about as versatile as they get. Whether you have rigid double mountaineering boots, tech ice boots, ski boots, or snowboard boots, these can adapt to fit any boot within reason that you may have for the many hobbies you may have. Yeah, they are on the heavy side if you are wanting the light aluminum skimo crampons, but there aren't many crampons out there that have the versatility. They come with a Fakir storage bag so the contents of your pack don't become shreds and the toe bails if you have boots with toe welts. 4 stars because the front isn't quite wide enough to properly seat a snowboard boot, but then again they weren't necessarily made for snowboard boots. I just didn't want to own 2 pairs of crampons if I ever try some ice climbing. There is also the option to be able to run a mono point front which adds to the versatility of these guys.
