The Air Tech crampon has ten points in contact with ice while you’re walking, twelve 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 sideways.
The crampon's points are short and designed for the new requirements of 'mixed modern’s' alternating ice and rock. Sharp points are ideal for anchoring on ice 'cauliflowers' and when in traction or adherence. Even the soles of the most modern boots are perfectly covered. The bar can be regulated by hand, in two different lengths. An all season crampon, very light and taking up a minimum of space as it folds up completely on itself.
New Classic is an evolution of the Classic binding. Both front and rear plastic harnesses are hinged from their respective retention posts and may be 'opened' to facilitate attachment to the boot, then closed securely once the boot is inside. The single strap closure system is simple, making the New Classic ideal for first time users. This system is simple and reliable, quick and easy, but it does take up a bit more space in the rucksack.
