Grivel Air-Tech Crampon
The Grivel Air-Tech is a very versatile crampon, suitable for everything from winter walking to classic alpine routes, and even more technical climbs (up to about grade V). It utilises a clever design that gives you 10 points in contact when walking and 12 when traversing. This is thanks to the shorter third set and re-angled fourth set. Points are shorter all-round than the similar G12, so walking on rocky terrain is a bit more comfortable, and it's lighter weight will be appealing.
The Air-Tech uses Grivel's New-Matic binding system, combining a rear heel clip with plastic front basket that will fit a wide variety of mountaineering boots. The front basket is made from DuPont Zytel, one of the strongest, most durable plastics available.
This version of the Air-Tech features a new improved spring clip on the rear section that's a lot less prone to accidental un-clipping.
The Air-Tech Crampons are an excellent compromise between weight, durability and performance making it one of the most versatile general purpose 12 point crampons available... Climbing Gear Reviews
