You don’t need ‘em until you do! You know that snow type. Too steep and firm to skin. Too punchy to boot. Ski crampons are the only fix. These shiny widgets from Salomon and Atomic work with the Shift binding. Slide the crampons in from the side and step on ‘em to engage the firm snow. Hopefully this stops you from sliding to the bottom of the mountain. Say no to snow-rash with the Salomon Shift Ski Crampons.
*Your skis cannot be wider than this at the position of your ski crampons (just behind the toe piece).
Questions & Reviews
I just put a ski crampon and boot on a Shift to check. You are correct that the boot is too high to put any pressure onto the ski crampon. Also, unless you have a very long boot, it's likely that the back of the crampon will end up resting on the ski/walk lever and brake, preventing it from even reaching the snow.
Unfortunately the Shift ski crampons are not compatible with Dynafit bindings.
The 120mm will be the move for the QST 106! You'll have a bit of space in-between the ski and the crampon but shouldn't be an issue. Sadly ski crampons are not able to be stretched in the same ways that binding brakes can.
I have the g3 findr 105mm underfoot. Which one would be the best crampon for me?
The 110mm ski crampon from Plum would be a great choice for your setup: https://skimo.co/plum-ski-crampons. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, the Shift ski crampons do not come any smaller than 100mm wide. With a ski that is 90mm at the waist it will work well enough.

The Shift 100mm Ski Crampons measure out at 106mm, so they should work. Be aware that the crampons may not cover the skinniest part of the ski, so if you can measure the width of the ski in the area where the crampon will sit, that would be the best way to make sure the 100mm option will work.
Is there any alternatives that could work with the shifts? Dynafit? G3?
skis are 106 underfoot
