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.
