If you've ever tried to skin up a steep, blank, icy face without ski crampons, you will immediately appreciate the value of the security they provide. By plunging into hard snow ice, the crampon teeth add grip when skins don't make full contact or you're slipping downhill. Whether you are chasing someone up a greasy skin track in the winter or trying to time the corn cycle in the spring, the Dynafit Ski Crampons will have you covered. Sold in pairs.
Machined with grooves that provide strength but keep the weight down (weights listed below).
Available in 80mm, 90mm, 100mm, 110mm, 120mm, and 130mm sizes to fit the width of your ski.
Easily slide into crampon receptors built into most tech bindings on the market.
** Please note that ski crampons work best with low heel riser settings. Since your boot is what drives the teeth into the snow, very high riser positions will result in a shallow purchase for the teeth. This can also be remedied by adding spacers on top of the crampons, which has the obvious drawback of adding weight.
I have the 2015 dynafit grand teton skis. The waist width is 105 mm. What ski crampons should I get?
Just reading the above questions and I can tell you I have the Icelantic Maiden ski 101 mm width but I dont have it here to measure at the receptor. Any idea if the 100 or the 110 would be better for the crampon?
Hey Susan! I just answered your email, but for anyone else reading, I'll respond to this as well. Sometimes the tolerances on the crampon and crampon receptor are a bit tighter than they should be and they need some persuasion to get them over that little stopper bump. I've gone as far as using the palm of my hand to force the crampon past that bump a few times. Not ideal, but after 5 or 6 installations and removals in the house, they'll slide in very easily afterwards. The little bump that's stopping it in the middle just needs to be rounded off to allow the crampon to slide over it a bit easier.
I have K2 Wayback 88, 181cm length. Size 13 feet, Mondo 29.5 (for binding placement information) Will the 90 width crampons work? I measured at the crampon insertion point on my toe piece and it's still 88mm but 1mm on each side seems tight if the crampons are exactly 90 wide. I heard they run a little bigger than stated size. Or should I go with the 100 width.
Hey Lee! Tough to tell 100% without seeing it, but yeah, it should work. Keep in mind that, at best, you'll only be getting 1mm of clearance on either side of the ski which is pretty tight. It's tough to justify the 100mm crampons for that though, but maybe something like the ATK ski crampon in a 97mm might be better. Like I said, it's tough to tell, but I'd say go with it.
