You could also call it the Universal Ski Crampon. With the option to mount it independently from the actual binding, the ION crampon can be used with any tech binding. Of course, if you use it with the ION it's even easier: just slide the included receptors under the toe pieces and screw them in. And with its unique corded attachment system, it can be installed or removed easily with one hand. In addition, demonstrating that G3 thought of everything, the crampon features a humped profile so your boot can drive it into the snow even while using your risers. Finally, it’s shiny.
Comes in 85mm, 105mm, and 130mm widths to fit any ski.
Universal mounting kit works with any tech binding / ski combination.
Simple pull cord operates the attachment, which can be used with one hand.
Raised rear profile helps your boot drive the points into the snow.
Receptors that slide under the ION binding toe pieces included.
Embossed 7075-T6 aluminum is strong and pleasing to the eye.
Weighs just 135 grams (4.7 ounces) for the 105mm width.
I have ION LTs. Will these work ok with the new Scarpa F-1 boots?
looking at the 105 mm crampon size for my Wailer 99s. Thanks
Hey David, thanks for reaching out! I tested the crampon adapter on the Backland binding with a La Soprtiva Syborg Boot (race boot, the rubber tread isn't very tall) and wasn't able to get enough clearance for the boot to land on even the tallest riser without hitting the crampon mount. The Backland is designed to work with a Dynafit style crampon though, so that's definitely what I'd recommend.
I love the concept. However be forewarned, the G3 adaptor does not fit all tech bindings. The crampon attachment prongs sat up so high it interfered with my TLT superlight / boot connection. Bummer, because I think it is a clever idea.
I like the quick release design of these crampons. Much easier to use without stepping out of the binding and seem to come with no risk of accidentally releasing. They feel quite similar to my Dynafits as far bite goes.
Hi Steve, I don't have that ski to test, but there is roughly 4mm of wiggle room on these. It depends on how big your foot is since the further the toe moves from center the wider the crampon has to be. The 105s will be close on this setup, it might rub a little.
