Lighter and more compact than the standard Dynafit crampon, the Speed is built for just that. The crampons have mean looking teeth and more cutouts to save weight. They are shallower in bite so work best with lower riser settings, like those found on race bindings. The Speed Crampon is 78mm wide and weighs 63 grams. It takes up less space than a standard crampon so is great for race packs. Simply slide the crampon into the side your compatible toe piece and let it drop on your ski for extra security when skinning on hard snow.
Questions & Reviews
Additionally, do you think these are better crampons than the normal ones? Based on the Q&A, it seems like these would work well as I have a race binding
and a 78mm waisted ski, but I wanted to double check. I'm not enough of a race weeny to really care about the 26G of the 78mm speed vs. the 80mm normal, but if the 78mm speed is more than adequate for the purposes, then I'd prefer to get that.
The picture doesn’t make them look that much more compact than the standard models, but in reality they are indeed noticeably more compact in your pack. Yet with the teeth configuration, and a low standheight toe unit combined with a “half-step” heel elevator position (i.e., as on any race or near-race binding), their bite is fine.
Just one caveat: for that perfect bite I added some spacers (from an older Dynafit Speed heelpost add-on kit, same as the newer Speed Turn).
Instead just visit the hardware stores bins for T-Nuts with Brad hole 6-32 x 1 ¼ plus corresponding machine screws.
Depending on the tolerances, you might need to just barely "kiss" the preexisting holes in the crampons -- but this is like a two-second minor drilling, nothing serious.
which crampon goes with the dynafit speed turn binding?
Also, I have crampons for a speed radical binding, would those fit the speed turn binding? Thanks, Ute
