Crampons that are super light and fast to put on? We’re listening! Dynafit is introducing a novel new crampon system that makes sloppy toe-bail fits a thing of the past: the Cramp-In Crampon. If you are a lucky owner of a Dynafit boot that are compatible with this crampon (hint, if it doesn’t have a toe welt, it’s likely compatible...see note below), your luck is about to be doubled. While the skinning efficiency of the boots using Speed Nose technology is above average, fitting a crampon could be a chore. But now that Dynafit has instigated phase two of global ski-mountaineering domination, you can just don a slick Cramp-In. The crampons attach to a metal bar under the ball of the foot and hook over the heel with a simple bail. A small tab locks into the receptor and hangs on tight once it’s tensioned appropriately using the coated steel cables. A typical ankle strap further secures the cramp-ins. Owners of the best walking ski-boots can now enjoy the lightest and smallest aluminum crampons on the market. Have your cake and eat it too with the Dynafit Cramp-In Crampons.
Compatibility Note: The first generation TLT7s do not have the cutout window in the sole to easily install the adapter. Check your sole for a rectangle under the ball of your foot. If you don't see one, expect to do some heavier mods for these to work.

Questions & Reviews
Getting them on is really easy and once on the boots you almost forget you have them since they are so light. They have turned into my go-to crampon for my ski-mountaineering objectives where I would bring all aluminium crampons. They are the perfect pairing with a PDG2, TLT7/8, or HOJI Boot (excluding the Free).

Glad to hear that you are happy with the Cramp-IN thus far. Sadly, the sole adaptors are not yet available as a spare part. I am not expecting to have them in the near future either. I apologize for the hassle that this causes when you have 2 (or three like is my case (-: ) pairs of boots that you would like to use the Cramp-In with.
