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 Virbram® 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.
