I have had the 100mm width for 15 years now, and just purchased the 90mm for a new set of skis. What can you say about an indispensable piece of equipment that should be in every ski mountaineers pack. Anytime I think there will be an icy skin track I take these along for worry-free skinning. I can't speak to how they compare to other manufactures because they things never break or fail and I've never had to look elsewhere. I've used them without risers just fine as long as you're not up on the highest level they purchase. Just realize that they are not for every firm snow condition. If you can do without them you'll most likely move faster and easier without them but when conditions call for them they are as crucial as boot crampons. Do yourself a favor and pick up a pair, you'll never look back (or slide back) again.

I have used these crampons for about 20 days now, with Broad Peak skis and Speed Radical bindings. No problems whatsoever. They were superb for high-alti peaks.

I believe now that any ski mountaineer should bring ski crampons with them for spring skiing, however, there was time I didn't believe so :)

Question from Aaron
 
Are these compatible with Plum Race 165 bindings? If not, can anyone point me to a binding that is?

Oops, I meant "point me to a crampon that is" compatible...

Hi Aaron. They should be with the crampon kit add-on. I will verify this when we get the Plums in stock, which hopefully isn't too far from now.

Answer from Jonathan S
 
My Dynafit crampons have worked just fine with my Plum race bindings, whose attachment seems to me to be exactly identical to that on the Dynafit Low Tech Race binding (except that the crampon attachment is included at no extra cost with the Dynafit bindings, but is a separate purchase with Plum).
In general, such a small metal clasp has more flexibility for adapting to small differences in the metal bar among different crampon brands.
The downside is that it is probably not quite as strong, although I haven't had any problems, and worst-case scenario, probably better to have that small replaceable part break than the crampon or binding frame.

Just following up. Indeed, as Jonathan stated, these work just fine with the Plum crampon kit.
