An evolution of the species.
Grivel's G14 crampons combine the technical performance of forged, vertical frontpoints with the low profile, collapsible frame of the G12 to make a modular, customizable crampon suited to many climbing disciplines.
Grivel's success and experience with the Rambo crampons reinforces the efficiency of forged points: they penetrate hard ice better, with less vibration, and offer the opportunity to combine vertical and horizontal axis. Front points are simple to configure on the G14, allowing the user to build mono or dual point crampons and replace worn points easily. The low profile of the crampon frame places the climber's foot closer to the rock or ice, and is less prone to balling up - as well as that the G14 crampon comes with the Antibott anti-balling plates included.
The Cramp-O-Matic binding is a simple, secure system, using a nylon speed lever in the rear and a stainless steel front bale to hold the boot. Quick to put on, these bindings are perfect for plastics - or any mountaineering boots that have a rigid sole and substantial heel and toe welts. The stainless steel safety strap, which was invented by Grivel, is permanently mounted on the front bale and prevents total loss of the crampon should it be forced off the boot.
At last, alpine climbing crampons with the technical performance of their ice and modern mixed counterparts.
