Hi Matt, the spacer isn't necessary for most folks. If you're unusually large or aggressive it may take some stress off the pins. We'll have those in stock in the fall.
Hi Gavin, it should. If you add a note to your order, we're happy to pull 'em out and triple check. We can even trim 'em for you if you wish.
Hi Marc, not really. You tie your own rope to the loop at the bottom. The rope that snugs in the finger-lock is part of the Escaper itself.
Hi Dan, these are not compatible with the Expedition. Good news is the Basic Hagan plates work with that heel.
Hi Ellen, there aren't specific risers for the Dynafit crampons, but some folks will use Speed Turn Nubbins.
