The Leopard is a lightweight, aluminum crampon with a unique linkage Petzl calls Cord Tech. By eliminating the metal linking bar that is traditionally used between the toe and heel of the crampon the weight, and especially the bulk, of the crampon are greatly reduced. These are the crampons you forget are in your pack and won't hesitate to have with you just in case. Much easier to put on than other foldable race-style crampons, the Petzl Leopard can be used in races or light-n-fast ski mountaineering where you may need to put them on in dicey situations.

  • 10-point design is optimized for glacier and snow travel.
  • Tool-free length adjustment uses a simple cord re-routing.
  • Two binding options: LeverLock FIL and Flexlock.
  • Comes with protective carry bag.
  • CE certified for mountaineering.

Leopard LLF - Lighter LeverLock FIL automatic binding is suitable for boots with toe and heel welts. Ideal for use with most ski touring boots.

Leopard FL - FlexLock binding can be used with all boots with or without toe/heel welts (e.g. TLT7). Can even be used on hiking and approach shoes.

A bit fiddly to get setup (perhaps the only crampon that needs to be broken in), once dialed in these spikes are a thing of beauty. The flexible instep lets them fold in half, clip easily to a harness, fit in a pocket, or just generally disappear into a pack. Weight is excellent, and once they're dialed, they're much more secure than the camp options that use a tech heel. It's impossible to get the cord adequately tight when adjusting by hand, so they need to be adjusted, put on the boot, and retightened after some use to make them truly secure for a given boot size. Thankfully, theyre field adjustable without tools. Once dialed in, the fit is very confidence inspiring, with no slop (paired with an F1 in my experience). The dyneema cord has fuzzed a bit after some agressive use, and I wouldn't hike them around on the rocks, but otherwise, durability is good. The weight and convenience are tough to beat.
