I have these in the 90mm width and they are a must if you like skiing peaks (early morning starts) or enjoy ski traverses. They can save you so much time if you just need to get through a sketchy section and don't want to carry your skins and put on real chompers. Yes, they slow down your skinning but the feeling of security is worth it. I used these every day when completing the Haute Route and they were 100% worth the weight.
Hi guys! I have a pair of these in the 90mm width for a pair of Cho's. Would it be dumb to try and use them on a skinnier pair of skis as well (79 waist) or should I get another pair of cramps in the 80mm width?
Hi Taylor, I've used 90mm crampons with a 78mm ski a fair amount and it hasn't been a problem. I wouldn't want too much more size difference though or the crampon starts applying too much torque on the receptor that is attached to the binding.
Hi Becky, it will be close! Depending on how far your toe pieces is from the center of the sidecut, you may need to go up to 110mm. If you measure the width of your ski right at your receptor it would help: below 102mm and you should be OK.
Would the 110 crampons be the right fit for my Voile Supercharger skies (164 cm- 102 at the waist) with dynafit bindings? I have an Iceland trip coming up in a few weeks and been asked to bring ski crampons but I've never used them before.
