Known as Snow Crabs, the Kreuzspitze binding toe pieces are some well-built pincers. The RS toes have strong steel springs and don't come with crampon receptors. The GT 2.0 toes have similar action but come with the receptor. Both feature a smooth locking mechanism with multiple notches for new versus broken-in tech fittings. The toe pieces seem to work especially well with La Sportiva boot soles, Kreuzspitze's Italian brethren.

Binding Model Weight (g) Weight (oz)
RS (A/L) 71 2.5
SCTT 78 2.8
GT 84 3.0
GT 2.0 91 3.2

The toes are priced and sold individually, we recommend one for each ski. If you need some matching heels, look here.

I purchased Kreuzspitze GT 1.0s 4 years ago, and I won’t be using their product again.

There are two key problems, both with the toes.

1. Ski cramps holders are badly engineered. I always have ski crampons and I use them, particularly when a fall and slide would be dangerous. The Kreuzspitze crampon fixation is dangerous. It’s simply not strong enough to take the loads on it and it bends open generally at the worse possible time. Once open, your crampon falls out. It’s not a pleasant experience.

Other brands have designs that cannot be bent open under load. If you use crampons, I really suggest you opt for another brand.

2. They fail with metal fatigue. They claim they check each product but they clearly have either design or manufacturing faults. As you can see in the picture below the left toe pin snapped off during a tour and I couldn't put the ski on. Luckily, I was able to walk out, but it wasn’t pleasant. In another situation, like skiing a chute, or traversing where a fall could be bad, it could have been life threatening.

A product should last 4 seasons (particularly as one season was lost to covid). I don’t race, and I’m not a heavy guy. My advice is to buy from a larger brand with better quality control and engineering. These units are not up to the demands of ski touring.

I have experienced the same failure mode with the 2017 SCTT toe piece TWICE(!!!!!!) on different toe pieces this season ('23/'24)! Once while skinning up, the ski just fell off my foot when it broke. The second time I was initiating a turn at approximately 30mph and went down hard. Both instances l was left to ski out on one ski. These bindings are garbage.

Question from Mike C
"Receptor"? What is this?
Answer from Andrew C
Mike, the "receptor" refers to the aluminum piece that is used for connecting ski crampons to the binding.

Question from Karl
I have a pair of spare SCTT heels that that I would like to get the toe pieces for. Any reason why I should not choose the RS (titanium) versus the RS-A (steel) version? I really don't care if they are something like 6.75 grams lighter, just like the color better.
Answer from Cole P
Hey Karl, the toes are actually the same with a different color scheme. The U-springs in the heel offer the option to go with steel or titanium.
