It's hard to argue with stronger and lighter! ATK placed themselves front and center in the eyes of the ski mountaineering crowd with a knockout ski crampon made with a robust, lightweight alloy. Designed by Batman himself, these sinister looking crampons inspire confidence in steep terrain. Available in several widths, most ATK crampons have a deep bite. The exception is the 70mm race crampon, which is shallower and has extra cutouts to save weight. All the crampons are sold in pairs and come with a carrying pouch. They are compatible with most Dynafit-style toe pieces, but notably not Plum bindings.
* Please note that ATK ski crampons are exactly the width specified so measure your ski where the crampon will sit and make sure to order a higher number.
Whats the compatibility of these with a pair of kingpins?
Justin, With the lever on he Kinpin there is not much room for the crampon to set down. Marker has their own that has a cutout to allow for that - Marker Pintech.
Would the 97's or the 108's be a better fit for a pair of BD Helio 95 skis? Concerned the 97's would be tight, and out of stock. But I want to make sure the fit is close though as I keep snapping ski crampons... Thanks!
Hey, I like the strength to weight ratio on these and the 86 will fit my Zero G 85's perfectly. Are they going to be compatible with my Kruezspitze GT bindings with the brake swivel (or would I need to remove the brake swivel)?
Also, seems like they must make some other sizes but perhaps you are out of stock? What do they make that would fit the Zero G 108?
I took Trace's encouragement to get these over the Dynafits. They go on surprisingly easily. Ski crampons were a game-changer to me, and the ATKs leave nothing to be desired. Highly recommended! I am using these on Movement X-Session 169 (89 waist) with Dynafit Speed Radical toes. I have the 97mm version. It's a perfect fit.
I just used these for the first time this weekend. It was wet at Shasta and the stuff I'd normally walk straight up, required traversing. Bust out the crampons and Voila! walking up straight again. They are very light and glide reasonably well. They pair great with the Hagen Core binding.
Hey guys, I just received my ATK race crampons from you, but I hadn't appreciated that the reinforcement bar would prevent them from working on my Dynafit Vertical ST bindings. I might want to send them back to you but... it occurs to me I could just cut off the excess plastic on those bindings anyway. While recognizing that you can't be held responsible if I screw that up... what do you think?
Hey Eric, thanks for reaching out. Ouch, that's a bummer, unfortunately you're not the first person to have this issue. The plastic molding aft of the toe piece that is preventing the crampons from sitting flat isn't crucial to the structural integrity of the binding and could totally be removed. Unofficially, we support your experiment and endeavor and it'll work just fine (if it was my binding, I'd do it). Officially though we, as a shop, can't recommend it because bindings aren't designed to be modified like that! ;) All that being said, we'd be happy to exchange them for you if you'd rather not start modifying bindings like that.
The quality and weight of these both seem excellent, but unfortunately they will not work on Dynafit Comfort bindings (post-2007). The extended plastic behind the toe piece interferes with the bar across the center cutout on the crampon.
Hi there, my Voile Superchargers measure 107mm wide underfoot and I have ATK Race bindings - Will the 108 provide adequate clearance or do I need to size up to the 110 Dynafit crampon? (I assume they are compatible) Thanks!
Hi David, I weighed the 75mm version at 68 grams. Unfortunately I don't have a verified weight for the Dynafit Speed Crampon as it is not currently offered in the US. I found some specs for the older 78mm version (before they widened all the crampons by 4mm) that says it weighed 63 grams, so I'm guessing the difference now is negligible.
