A beefier version of the Race 2.0 crampons, the SkiMatic 2.0 Touring edition features a steel toe and anti-balling plates. The novel attachment system is the same, with the levering bail at the front of the boot instead of the rear. This solves many boot compatibility issues due to collisions with ski/walk mechanisms and pivoting cuffs in general. The Touring model is equipped with a steel toe that will take some abuse from rock and kick further into hard ice. The heel remains aluminum to keep things light. Anti-balling plates prevent underfoot snow buildup which can be dangerous. The SkiMatic 2.0 Touring crampons are rugged, light, and quick to put on.
- SkiMatic 2.0 attachment system quickly levers onto the toe of a ski boot.
- 6 steel points in the toe combine with 4 aluminum sharpies in the heel.
- Webbing strap can be used for leverage and secured with a boot buckle.
- Stiff linking bar will hold up to abuse and keep the crampons on your boot.
- Included optional ankle strap attaches to the heel for extra security.
- Included carry case is durable and has a mesh top to allow for drying.

Questions & Reviews
Are these the only crampons that allow the ski/walk lever of the Alien to move freely?
Also, do you think the toe bail system would fit on other crampons, say the Petzl Leopard?
