A classic 12-point crampon that can be adjusted by hand, thus eliminating the need to carry tools which add weight and are often lost! Designed for moderate to mid-grade snow & ice and mixed routes, the front points can also successfully tackle the occasional pitch of steep or vertical ice.
The 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 in. The single strap closure system is extremely simple and quick to use, making it ideal for rental programs and first time users, although not having to fiddle with yards of tape and freezing metal is something everyone can enjoy!
