Winter trekking micro crampons that are ideal for walking and running on icy or snow-covered tracks. Also far more comfortable than wearing crampons for walking into remote crags to go climbing where the ground is icy but flattish (eg Ben Nevis as far as the CIC Hut), even though you have crampons in your rucksack.

Micro crampons are anti-slip devices for footwear. They are distinguished from standard crampons mainly by their reduced weight and overall dimensions and by their ease of fit. Micro crampons are not designed for climbing but for the safety of walking in all situations where stability is endangered by a slippery surface due to snow, ice, mud, wet grass, etc.

They are therefore useful for walking and running on ice, on snow, on wet grassy soils, on soft, muddy or slippery soils. They are not suitable for particularly hard, stony or stone-covered soils, as there is a risk of slipping on these surfaces, and they should not be used on steep ground where proper crampons would be far more suitable.

  • Quick and excellent fit on shoe or boot due to the velcro band above the foot.
  • Thirteen steel crampon spikes (a mix of 7mm and 17 mm long) for excellent stability and perfect grip.
  • Short link chain made of high quality steel to assure reliability and resistance
  • Hi-tech silicon elastomer tested up to -60 °C for a quick and comfortable fit and perfect positioning of the light crampon.
  • Ideal for ice, hard snow and frozen undergrowth.
  • Front hinged crampons to prevent accumulations of snow and ice
  • Steel hoop on the shoe or boot‘s tip for excellent stability.
  • Supplied in a compact case that prevents the tips of the micro crampons damaging your rucksack.

Before each use, visually check for damage - if cracks are found anywhere they should not be used. Before use, make sure that you have correctly fitted the micro-crampons and carry out a test to check that they are effective in relation to the terrain you want to tackle. For a correct, satisfactory and long-lasting use of the product, it is important to make sure that the micro crampon is of a size suitable for the shoe on which it will be used and that the positioning of the micro crampon itself on the shoe takes place correctly. The elastic must never come into contact with the sole of the shoe and all the components of the micro crampon must be subjected to a light and uniform tension.
