The Harfang Crampon from Blue Ice is one of the more innovative pointy accessories we've seen in recent memory. Featuring a three-part design, the Harfang is a highly packable crampon that rivals the likes of the Petzl Irvis Hybrid. With front points made from steel and the rest being made from aluminum, you're bound to notice the weight reduction AND increased security. Blue Ice has dropped the innovation hammer by implementing a flexible band that connects both the front and rear points. And let’s not forget about the middle points! Made as a separate component (22g each w/o ABS), users can adjust where the middle points of the crampons fit on their boots, allowing for ultimate customization. The Harfang Crampon from Blue Ice is perfect for those looking to get an exact, secure fit for those gnarly objectives.

  • Maximum precision with a micro adjuster on the heel lever.
  • Two mounting positions available on the steel wire toe bail.
  • Toe baskets included for boots without toe welts
  • TPU Active ABS which works to prevent snow build-up.
  • Textile strap creates an exact fit for multiple boots.
  • Toe bails can be swapped for Semi-auto toe bails.

Question from Eric S
 
Should I worry that the reason these are on sale at the moment is that a "better" version is coming out?
7/12/2022
Answer from Will McD
 
Not at all, Eric. They are just discounted for the off-season, though we did just receive the full aluminum and full steel versions as well.

Question from Eric S
 
Hey guys:

I've had trouble finding a semi-auto crampon where the heel lever doesn't interfere with the somewhat bulky way the walk-to-ski lever is designed, on my daughter's Movement Explorer Jr. boots. I wonder if you could check this out, if you have some in stock?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Eric, check out the Grivel reverso crampons for those boots. Standard heel bails just don't seem to work with that walk mech.

Veery cool -- I had not seen these. I will check that out.

Question from Grant
 
Any reviews on these guys? Wonder how they will hold up long term. Also, can you buy replacement parts for them at all?

Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Grant,

We have not had any durability feedback on the Harfang as of yet, which is a good sign. We carry other skimo crampons that blend steel and aluminum components as well as a non-rigid center bar that can be used as a proxy.

If you find yourself waltzing around on moraine, the aluminum components will tire far more quickly than steel. As far as the UHMWPE and HTPE center bar is concerned, I have put a set of the Petzl Irvis Hybrid crampons through the wringer. They use a similar material (Dyneema) to join front and rear. They have held up well in anything from rock and ice to snow. I would expect the same out of the center bar used in the Harfang.

At this time, we do not stock any replacement Harfang parts. If you have further questions, feel free to reach out to help@skimo.co!

Question from Hock
 
I have two pair of go to boots … TLT 5 and PDG 2. Best superlight crampon setup that would work with both. Harfang or Petzl Irvis Hybrid.
2/10/2022
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for reaching out, Hock. The PDG 2 has a speed nose, and can't be used with an automatic crampon. Because the Harfang only uses a wire bail (automatic), the Petzl Irvis Hybrid, which comes with both FlexLock and wire bail (automatic and semi-automatic), will be your only choice.

Answer from Ian C
 
Revisiting this may be a moot point as we are currently sold out of the Harfang, but as of 22-23 this crampon will come with an interchangeable toe basket so would be compatible with any boot that has a heel welt.

Answer from peterindc
 
Hi folks, I see you're back in stock. If I order today would I get the 22-23 version that comes with the interchangeable toe basket?

If I even need that to be able to use it both with a conventional AT ski boot, and with the Scarpa Charmoz HD Mountaineering Boot, which is listed as being compatible with semiautomatic crampons (https://www.rei.com/product/165729/scarpa-charmoz-hd-mountaineering-boots-mens)

Answer from Will McD
 
Hey Peter, the version that we have does have the ability to switch out the toe bails and should work fine. Thanks
