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.

Question from Alex Hackett
 
Is this compatible with Dynafit ST Rotation 12 Ski Bindings and Black Diamond Helio 105 skis? I have a Salomon S/Lab X-Alp Alpine Touring Ski Boot. I would get the 108mm size. Thanks.

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Alex, those should fit just fine! The listed widths are pretty accurate, so there's a small chance the 108mm may be slightly tight if you have a very long boot sole length.

Question from Zach Tondre
 
Will these fit the Marker Kingpin?

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Zach, thanks for reaching out! I just tested these with the Kingpin M-Werks, and I'd say it isn't ideal.

The Kingpin needs the shorter plate length of the Marker Pintech ski crampons to accommodate the lever that moves the heel piece, depending on the BSL it was mounted for.
Other sliding bar style crampons may work with Kingpin, but the tail end of the crampon plate would be resting on the front end of the heel piece. This could risk damaging the crampons, or at least will limit the depth that they are able to bite into the snow.

Hope this nerding out is useful!

I have the 86mm model. I bought them for an 84mm ski width, but they also work just fine with another ski that has a stated 87mm waist. I've used them ATK/BD bindings, but I also test-fitted them in the more basic slightly bendable crampon clip that came with older Plum bindings and the Dynafit LTR/SSL. Fit is fine, slides in relatively smoothly, and comes out with the right amount of ease.
Compared to my Dynafit 90mm crampons, the attachment bar is very similar. The teeth look more aggressive, although too many variables to test them in the field to see if their grip is any better.
The little carry bag they come with is light enough to use in the field, although I've always just packed them around other gear.

Are these compatible with the dynafit speed radical toe adapter?

Answer from TSB
 
Hey Eric, you got it! The BD ski crampons (manufactured by the Italian cognoscenti at ATK) pair well with any of the crampon adapters from Dynafit, including those on the Speed Radical.

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Unfortunately, it would not fit! Try the 97 or a 90mm Dynafit.
