Purists may try to avoid using ski crampons and rely instead of 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 track in town with nary another route in sight. Whatever the case, ski crampons belong in every backcountry skiers’ pack. The Black Diamond Helio Ski Crampons are menacing and their bite is fierce, giving you peace-of-mind. They are perfect for devouring slippery vert and accessing hard to reach areas. They work with Black Diamond Helios and other bindings with Dynafit-style crampon receptors.
