Known as Snow Crabs, the Kreuzspitze binding toe pieces are some well-built pincers. The RS toes have strong steel springs and don't come with crampon receptors. The GT 2.0 toes have similar action but come with the receptor. Both feature a smooth locking mechanism with multiple notches for new versus broken-in tech fittings. The toe pieces seem to work especially well with La Spor..

If you already have ten toes, you might consider getting some heels to match. The Dynafit binding heel pieces can be used to replace borked ones, build an unsanctioned super binding, or be stashed in your collection of other unusual parts. It's also not a bad idea to have a backup plan if you're planning an extended stay in a remote place. See the table below for details.

These are Plum binding heel pieces, priced & sold INDIVIDUALLY. If you buy two, they come in a boxed set. If you buy one, we'll just put a stamp on the top and hope for the best. We'll even loosely ..

Lighter and more compact than the standard Dynafit crampon, the Speed is built for just that. The crampons have mean looking teeth and more cutouts to save weight. They are shallower in bite so work best with lower riser settings, like those found on race bindings. The Speed Crampon is 78mm wide and weighs 63 grams. It takes up less space than a standard crampon so is great for rac..
If you've ever tried to skin up a steep, blank, icy face without ski crampons, you will immediately appreciate the value of the security they provide. By plunging into hard snow ice, the crampon teeth add grip when skins don't make full contact or you're slipping downhill. Whether you are chasing someone up a greasy skin track in the winter or trying to time the corn cycle in the s..
It's hard to argue with stronger and lighter! ATK placed itself 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..
Nothing screams "I love spring" more than the Hagan Ski Crampon. Well, maybe choosing Cinco De Mayo as your favorite holiday but that's beside the point. The Hagan Ski Crampon provides utter grip on utterly bad skin tracks. Forged from aluminum, into small alligator teeth, it's not too often that you get this strong of a ski crampon in such a small package. Compatible with all Haga..
No more sliding! Neither when skinning on icy sidehills nor when inserting crampons. Plum crampons feature a specially designed attachment mechanism that allows you to plop them in place, instead of sliding them on from the side. Hold the crampon vertically to attach/detach it from Plum bindings, and then let it fall into place. The rigid alloy frame with sharp teeth will take over..
Purists may try to avoid using ski crampons and rely instead on skinning technique or boot-packing, but there are times when ski crampons are the most efficient travel option. Maybe you’d rather avoid wallowing through breakable crust. Maybe you don’t want to slip and slide on glazed slopes with exposure below. Maybe your objective lies on the other side of the most slippery skin t..
Backcountry skiing often involves less-than-ideal snow conditions. Inevitably at some point during the season, greasy skin-tracks are the rule rather than the exception. The Marker Pintech Crampons will make quick work of that grease. Further, when tacking big mountains without a nice skin-track, frozen icy faces and supportable bullet-proof crusts can be daunting. If it’s too slic..

The Kreuzspitze Ski Crampon is an adjustable-width security tool that weighs only slightly more than a fixed crampon. The ski crampons come in two sizes depending on how much ski you can handle. The Small size has three size positions: 68mm, 82mm, and 96mm. The Large also has three positions, just wider ones: 102mm, 116mm, and 130mm. If you have more skis than the average person sh..
In addition to being a fantastic accessory to the ZED and ION bindings, the G3 ION ski crampons could be called the universal crampon due to their second, 'direct to ski' mounting option. Of course, if you use it with the ION, it's even easier-- just slide the included receptors under the toe pieces and screw them in. With its unique corded attachment system, the ION ski crampons c..
You don’t need ‘em until you do! You know that snow type. Too steep and firm to skin. Too punchy to boot. Ski crampons are the only fix. These shiny widgets from Salomon and Atomic work with the Shift binding. Slide the crampons in from the side and step on ‘em to engage the firm snow. Hopefully this stops you from sliding to the bottom of the mountain. Say no to snow-rash with the..
The Fritschi ski crampons offer quick and easy attachment for added bite on icy, technical skin tracks.

It also increases th..

Getting the right ramp angle on your bindings can make the difference between skiing on-point or in the backseat with tired quads. B&D makes shims for almost every occasion. Choose a shim based on your binding and desired pin height delta, which can take some experimentation. Shorter boot sole lengths are more affected by delta because they end up with a higher ramp angle, thus..
Leashing yourself to your skis in the backcountry has benefits and drawbacks. If you are prone to yard sales and subsequent difficulty finding your skis, it can be a good idea to tie yourself in. If you are prone to getting caught in avalanches and swimming for your life, the last thing you need is to be anchored to anything that could pull you down. However if you end up resort sk..
ATK leashes are made with a Kevlar core to be ultralight yet strong. They extend up to 60cm (two feet) but have a spiral polyurethane sheath that otherwise prevents them from slopping around and getting caught on branches. A simple clipping system lets you hook and unhook your skis at will. The leashes weigh 17 grams (0.6 ounces) each and will break with an elongation force of arou..

Kevlar cores and aluminum wire-carabiners are all the rage when it comes to ski leashes. The Black Diamond Helio leashes have joined the party.

The backcountry ski touring leash from B&D is designed to alleviate the need to detach and attach your skis while putting on your climbing skins.

It also allows for more slack in the line when your bindings release in a fall...
Leashes can be very valuable if you’re prone to dropping your skis off a mountain. The Plum leashes are a coiled cable and carabiner that can be hitched to your toe pieces and then to your boot. The length is spot on for a perfect amount of versatility without getting in the way while skinning. It’s long enough that you can reach the leash attachment point on your boot and still ha..
Heading out into the mountains to lose yourself in a winter wonderland can be blissful, but locating a ski (after you yardsale into that same winter wonderland because you were messing with your Megasend Footy Cam 3000 instead of skiing) is the opposite of blissful (tortured, maybe?). Folks who have lost skis in deep snow know that once you stomp around for 20 minutes without succe..

The Marker Alpinist Leashes are strong, coiled steel cable that connects to a lightweight wire-gate aluminum carabiner. The ‘biner attaches to a steel loop that should be connected to boot hardware. Clean, light, and a length that may pro..
A little bit of skinning and walking doesn’t scare most backcountry skiers, but dropping a ski from up high can really put a damper on a day. Not every ski partner is willing to tackle a ski like a football player, so it’s best to either hold on really tight or instead install a leash. The Ski Trab Leash is a simple gizmo made of coiled steel coated in rubber to keep durability up ..
The patented brakes from Kreuzspitze are cool removable devices that slide into your crampon slot. They are secured by a simple locking switch (included) that is mounted with a single screw under your foot. Take them off when skinning uphill, slide them back on before skiing down. The brakes will retract when you lock your heel into ski mode and deploy when you have a yard sale. Gr..
Moving Dynafit bindings from one ski to another often requires a brake change to accommodate the new width. Brakes can also get damaged. Please note ► The Dynafit brakes listed below the line are priced individually so you will need two if switching skis or one if fixing damage. The brakes have a few millimeters of wiggle room, so a 100mm brake will work on a ski slightly over 100m..

Rather than integrate the brakes into the bindings, Atomic decided to make it easy on you. Manufactured in five different sizes as a modular accessory to the Backland Pure binding, the brakes sit directly underneath the baseplate of the heel piece. This affords a lot of flexibility for weight savings (remove the brake) or ski width changes (replace the brake). One large lever is th..
