Excellent 12-point semi-rigid steep ice, snow and mixed crampon with simple no tools adjustment. This crampon has long penetrating points and is designed for quite technical ice climbing, though it is still a reasonable walking crampon. However anyone needing a crampon mainly for walking and easier routes should consider the Airtech.

There are three binding systems available: Cramp-o-matic: Full step-in with a wire front bail. It's quick to put on in a blizzard and feels more rigid and secure than the other bindings, but you do have to get them on just right - rigid boots only. New-Matic: Semi step-in with Grivel's excellent plastic toe cap - but will will fit only on semi-rigid walking boots and stiffer, with a step in on the heel. New-Classic: Superb all encasing basket system that means that you can put this crampon on just about anything that is B2 rated or above, though it is marginally more fiddly to fit than the other models.

Antibott (anti-balling plates) are included.

This Evo model has three major changes over the previous version:

  1. New heel lever is lighter and has only one moving part (as opposed to five) but still adjusts to all suitable boots.
  2. The webbing tape is narrower (12mm as opposed to 14mm) and lighter.
  3. The buckle has been redesigned to be lighter and more compact but still give a strong hold.

All this means that Cramp-o-Matic and New-Matic models are 54g lighter that their predecessors, whilst New-Classic models are 14g lighter.

Top Tip 1: To fit smaller boots, take the bars out, and swap them over, turning them upside down before fitting them. This brings a small blocking lug into play, effectively shortening the length of the bar.

Top Tip 2: If you have problems fitting the Super-Asymetric bars, take off the AB plates, and you can then slide them in from underneath.

Fit only to a B3 Mountaineering Boot.
