The Fritschi ski crampons offer quick and easy attachment for added bite on icy, technical skin tracks. The use of a rotating adapter will allow you to adjust how deep the crampon bites from each of the three riser settings. Machined teeth ensure great bite in icy-but-punchy snow, and an aluminum construction keeps things light and fast whether on your skis or in your pack. The Fritschi Vipec ski crampons are sold in pairs and are only compatible with Vipec and Tecton bindings. 292g / pair [100mm]
Update 2021/22: Fritschi did away with the riser that let you control how deep the crampons would bite. Instead, they made the teeth a little longer to bite deeper when using any of the risers. Overall this saved about an ounce of weight per crampon, which is partially recovered by the inclusion of a carry bag.
Questions & Reviews
As a long lover of the dynafit style of ski crampon, I was a bit skeptical of having moving parts and springs involved in my ski crampons, but the choice is pretty much made for you when you mounted your bindings, so I am especially happy to report that they have worked very smoothly and have given me no trouble. Indeed, the spring action is slick and makes taking them on and off easy, and can be done without needing to take your skis off.
I bought them to ski Mt Hood, which went well (left the skis at Hogsback, did not try to ski the pearly gates), and have taken them out several times for some local Wasatch terrain when conditions were crummier.
Will the 115 mm still work?
Looks like we measured the internal width of the 115mm ski crampon at 116mm. It will be very tight, but it could work depending on how slanted your sidewalls are, and where the crampon ends up on the ski. For confirmation, reach out to email@example.com!
My understanding is that the Vipec's ski crampon compatibility has not changed as the binding has been updated over the years.
Based on your ski waist width, the 115mm width ski crampons would be your best bet. If you have further questions, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Any stock available for the vipec crampons over 105mm ?
