Plum Ski Crampons

No more sliding! Neither when skinning on icy sidehills nor when inserting crampons. Plum crampons feature a specially designed attachment mechanism that allows you to plop them in place, instead of sliding them on from the side. Hold the crampon vertically to attach/detach it from Plum bindings, and then let it fall into place. The rigid alloy frame with sharp teeth will take over from there, letting you scale otherwise too-slippery slopes. The attachment system keeps the crampon centered on your ski at all times. Mesh carrying case included.

* Please note these crampons are only compatible with newer Plum Guide & Yak bindings, plus all Pika, WEPA, Oazo, Summit, and Race 150/170 bindings. For older Guide bindings, check that your receptor looks like the one highlighted by the red arrow in the photo above.

Update 2018/19: Now available in 130mm and 145mm widths for splitboarders using the Pekye or other Plum toes. Note these crampons also work with the Salomon MTN and Atomic Backland bindings.

Question from Mafee
 
Does plum work well with salomon shift mnc 13 bindings?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mafee, sadly, no. The Shift requires the Shift crampons.

Question from Takashi
 
Hi there,

I have Black Crows Orb Freebird 91mm with Plum Guides. Do I need to get 100mm Plum ski crampons or will the 90mm work?? Many thanks in advance!

Answer from Patrick C
 
Takashi,

Thanks for the question! I measured the crampons and they are 91mm at their skinniest point. I also put the 90mm crampons on a 91 waisted ski and they worked unless I got very far forward on the mounting plate. The 100mm crampon is the safe bet, but unless you have really big boots with a long boot sole length I think you can go with the 90mm crampon!
10/31/2020
Answer from Takashi O
 
Thank you very much for looking into this. Good to know the crampons are 91 - I'll measure mine but I'll probably get the 100s as you suggest. I do have a long boot sole length and also can use them on future skis that will probably be wider...

Question from Jonathan Epperson
 
Hello! If I am using this with two different pairs of skis (both mounted with Salomon MTN bindings) - one with waist width of 106 and one at 118, will the 120 work for both, or will there be a fitment issue with either/both? Thanks in advance, and I hope you all are staying healthy and safe!
4/16/2020
Answer from TSB
 
Hey Jonathan! You will likely find that the 120mm ski crampon wouldn't be a perfect fit with the 106mm skis, especially when skinning on side-hills. Although the Plum crampon adapter means that the crampon won't slide side-to-side under pressure, the leverage on the crampon adapter will be less than ideal and won't feel super secure. I would recommend getting a set of 110mm Plum crampons and making your 106s your dedicated hard-snow/mountaineering skis, while reserving those 118s (are you on QSTs?) for getting totally deep.
4/16/2020
Answer from Jonathan E
 
Thanks, TSB! That's great advice - I'll pull the trigger on the 110. The 118s I'm on are the 2019 Moment Wildcat 190s, which are amazing on deep days.

Question from Mike Bailey
 
I’m looking at purchasing these for use with my Salomon MTN bindings on 171 cm Voile Ultra Vectors. I’ve never used ski crampons so have been reading about them and read there are problems with less grip when skinning on your heel risers. Some advocate attaching home made blocks and some come with blocks or even risers on the crampons. Any advice or thoughts on this? Plum seems to be the crampon of choice for my binding but maybe does not address the riser issue? If it matters, I’m on a Scarpa Spirit 3 boot (hoping to upgrade soon!)
4/12/2020
Answer from Jeff
 
Mike, The Plum Crampons are a nice choice for your binding. We sell just about every brand of ski crampon and none come with any type of riser blocks. And surprisingly there isn't anyone making one specifically for crampons. The higher the riser you use, the less the boot will be able to push crampon teeth below the ski. Being these help more when side-hilling, using a flat or low riser should be OK. You see the two holes, through those you can screw just about anything that will act a spacer.

Question from Ryan
 
I have the Atomic Backland Tour (18/19) Bindings, now called the Pure or brakeless, on BD Helio95 skis with 95mm waist. Safe to assume the 100mm crampons are the way to go?
3/28/2020
Answer from Cole P
 
Ryan, you are correct the 100 mm crampon would fit that ski just fine.

Question from emily s
 
will 80mm crampons have enough clearance for voile objectives? (80 underfoot!)

Answer from TSB
 
Hey Emily, yes, there's *just* enough clearance to make it work on a 164cm Objective!

Question from Pete
 
Would the 110mm be usable for a 96mm underfoot ski? I have a pair of 109mm and a pair of 96mm skis, and would love to be able to buy only one pair of crampons for both setups.
10/27/2019
Answer from TSB
 
Hey Pete, that should work just fine. The one situation where you might see a performance disadvantage would be on steep and/or firm sidehills where the crampon wings are spread further from the ski edges, giving you less traction directly under the foot. 7mm on each side of the ski isn't egregious, though.

Will these work with the Atomic Shift bindings? If yes, would I order 120's to go with 120 width bindings/brakes?

Answer from Jeff
 
Jon. Not even close. Salomon/Atomic make a crampon for the Shift and no other will work. Unfortunately Skimo and most places do not have in stock now. Here is the page Shift crampon

Do the Plum crampons fit with the Salomon MTN binding?

Any advantage over the Dynafit crampon?
6/11/2019
Answer from Jeff
 
Rod, Yes the Plum and Dynafit work with the MTN. One advantage with the Plum is you do not use the plastic clip to hold it in place.

Hi Justin, yes, prior to this season Plum did not bundle the receptors with the 170s. They are available here.

Question from Jake
 
Skis I'm using are 112mm at the waist... Think I can get away with the 110mm? Or should I bump to the 120mm?
4/18/2019
Answer from Jeff
 
Jake, I put the 110mm on a Wailer 112. The indented parts snugged up against the ski. If you were to bend out just a hair by the longest tooth, it would be perfect.
4/18/2019
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jake, it is really hard to bend crampons so it's probably a good idea to go up to 120. They won't overhang much. Also, get a skinnier ski for firm days ;)

Question from Eric
 
Hi, I have what I think is an older Plum Yak binding. It says "mountain spirit" on the binding as well which someone else asked about compatibility with earlier. I didn't see the note and bought these crampons and they're not fitting. What options would you recommend? Do you sell a ski crampon that fits the "older models"? What would it be called? I think I could file away at either the crampon or the binding to make it fit, but am hoping for a different option.

Albert, Plum crampons and adapter are unique to them. This crampon would not be compatible with a Dynafit binding.

Question from Darin Berdinka
 
Any real issues with going slightly wider than the minimum possible? My daughters currently on 90 mm waisted skis but I would like to future proof a bit if I can and get 100 mm crampons. She's a lot lighter and going to be a lighter than the average backcountry skier for sometime. Deep thoughts?
3/14/2019
Answer from eric
 
Darin- You can use a 100mm crampon with a 90mm waist ski. You could bend or break the crampon or its receptor. The other potential issue is not great bite on hard snow with the crampon.
