Pretty much all you would want in a ski crampon. They are lighter and stack on each other better than the Dynafit crampons, and they attach securely. A word of caution on sizing - I bought the 91mm size for a pair of 90mm waist skis and they were too narrow. The skis were mounted slightly forward of the recommended line, and the width of the ski at the toe piece was just over 91mm and the crampons did not have enough room. It is important to measure the width of the ski at the toe piece and not just go off ...
I love these bindings. I have added adjustment plates and crampon receptors so they are functionally the same as the Helio 200. I love lightweight gear, but I have a history of knee injury and mediocre ski ability so I am wary of fixed release bindings, so these are the best of both worlds with full release adjustment and minimal weight gain compared to race-style bindings.

I went into Skimo Co earlier this winter hoping to pick up a cheaper guidebook for the Sierra, but ended up with this one. I originally scoffed at the high price, but holding this next to other guidebooks you can tell that so much more work went into this and there is so much more information than most others. The way the book is organized by drainage is very intuitive and the photos and level of information is very deep. If you're going to make the trip to the Sierra you owe it to yourself to get the best ...
