Anti-balling plates for CAMP crampons help prevent snow buildup that can be dangerous. If snow accumulates under the sole of your boot, it will prevent the crampon spikes from gaining full purchase into the ground which can then lead to slipping. These VirbramĀ® rubber plates are designed to shed snow and help avoid this situation. Some people prefer to simply knock their boots together to drop any snow, which also can be effective if you notice the buildup in time. All plates are sold in pairs. Weights are as follows:

  • Race 290 - 39 grams (1.4 ounces)
  • Tour 350 - 39 grams (1.4 ounces)
  • XLC 390 / 470 / 490 / Nanotech - 59 grams (2.1 ounces)
  • Tour Nanotech / 350 Plastic * - 42 grams (1.5 ounces)

Update 2018: CAMP is now offering "dynamic" plastic anti-balling plates which flex as you walk which helps to shed snow off the anti-stick surface. They attach with loops over the front points and metal plates & screws to lock them in the rear.

Question from George Smith
Hello guys ...

I have a pair of CAMP XLC 390 boot crampons that I have used for years on my hut-to-hut ski tours in the Alps. I see that there are now 'anti-balling' kits for these crampons. What anti-balling kit would work with these venerable crampons?

Also, I just purchased a pair of Elan Ripstick Tour 94 skis in 171 cm size. I need some ski crampons for this set-up, and it looks like the Marker 105's would do the trick. Do you have these in stock?

Thanks ...
Answer from Carlos M
Hi George,

You will want the Stalker Universal plates for those crampons. And for the ski crampons - yes, we have many of the Marker Pintech crampons in stock in 105mm.

Question from Scott Toraason
I own a Camp a XLC 490 Universal Crampon that has been in the box unused for many years. Back then the cost was $115.00 and they did not come with anti balling plates. They are just like the current model that now come with plates but I am unsure what plate to order under your selection so I can give to a friend. Thanks.
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Scott,

I have an older pair of Grivel (G-10 or G-12). What model of your plates should I order?

Hi John, none of these will fit a Grivel crampon but if you email with your exact model (including year) we may be able to order you some Grivel antibotts.

Question from Stuart MacLean
Hi, I have an older pair of Camp Green Ice Crampons, can I use modern anti- ball plates, are they compatible?
Many thanks

Answer from Zak M
Hey Stuart, if you wouldn't mind sending a picture of your crampons to we could help identify what crampons you would need. Most likely the XLC & Nanotech would be the ones you would be after.
