A new generation of crampons. Ten points in contact with ice while you're walking, 12 that bite into the slope during traverses. This has been made possible because the third pair of points are shorter and wider apart; on top of this the last two front points have a double angulation to maintain bite when descending or traversing. The Air Tech's points are short and designed for the new requirements of "mixed moderns",쳌 alternating ice and rock. Sharp points are ideal for anchoring on ice "cauliflowers"쳌.
An evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic step-in binding system, the New-Matic binding utilises the C-O-M rear bale and lever, teaming them with a plastic harness system, hinged from two front posts, which retain the boot securely even if it has a shallow, worn front welt or if overboots are being used.
It is really an "all seasons"쳌 crampon, very light and takes up a minimum of space as it folds up completely on itself.

These were a huge improvement over my old crampons. Easy and quick to put on, they feel comfortable and secure when walking.
