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.
Have the Fischer Classic Binding and the Crampon, what's the trick to sliding the Crampon in? It wants to stop in the middle.
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.
Do you sell the blocks to add to the dynafit ski crampons? (Like the B and D model....) Do the dynafit ski crampons still work with the old dynafit vertical bindings? If you do sell the blocks, how much do they weigh? My B and D ski crampons are so heavy and 12mm wider than my new ski, so I am shopping! Ellen
Hey Jeff! Very possibly! I think there's a good chance it'll work just fine but the boot size, sidecut, and sidewall construction will make or break that potentially tight fit. What ski is it? I may be able to measure for you!
I have these in the 90mm width and they are a must if you like skiing peaks (early morning starts) or enjoy ski traverses. They can save you so much time if you just need to get through a sketchy section and don't want to carry your skins and put on real chompers. Yes, they slow down your skinning but the feeling of security is worth it. I used these every day when completing the Haute Route and they were 100% worth the weight.
Hi guys! I have a pair of these in the 90mm width for a pair of Cho's. Would it be dumb to try and use them on a skinnier pair of skis as well (79 waist) or should I get another pair of cramps in the 80mm width?
Hi Taylor, I've used 90mm crampons with a 78mm ski a fair amount and it hasn't been a problem. I wouldn't want too much more size difference though or the crampon starts applying too much torque on the receptor that is attached to the binding.
Hi Becky, it will be close! Depending on how far your toe pieces is from the center of the sidecut, you may need to go up to 110mm. If you measure the width of your ski right at your receptor it would help: below 102mm and you should be OK.
Would the 110 crampons be the right fit for my Voile Supercharger skies (164 cm- 102 at the waist) with dynafit bindings? I have an Iceland trip coming up in a few weeks and been asked to bring ski crampons but I've never used them before.
