- I'm yet to use these crampons (will use them extensively at the end of the year).
It is immediately obvious that these are a very high quality product from Grivel. The build and finish are both superb. The length adjustment system - you lift the plate at the heel and slide - is quick and feels solid.
These also use the newer, stronger double bar (different from the product picture) which is great.
The points are aggressive and very, very sharp. With some minor adjustment these fit the La Sportiva Baruntse boot very well.
I've no doubt these will last for many seasons!!
I'd also highly recommend buying a suitable set of point protectors / crowns and storage bag.
- Slightly heavy, poor packing from Grivel - these just float around in the Grivel cardboard box (a little padding or protective foam layer between the crampons would have been nice).
