An evolution in the species. The Grivel G14 crampons combine the technical performance of hot forged, vertical frontpoints with the low profile, collapsible frame of the G12 to make an altogether fresh, modular, and customizable crampon suited to many climbing disciplines.
Grivel's success with the Rambo crampon reinforces the validity of forged points: they penetrate hard ice better, with less vibration, and offer the opportunity to combine vertical and horizontal axis.
Front points are simple to configure allowing the user to build mono or dual point crampons and replace worn points easily. At last, alpine climbing crampons with the technical performance of their ice and modern mixed counterparts.
Binding: Cramp-O-Matic: A well known system which relies on a nylon speed lever in the rear and a stainless steel front bale to hold the boot. Quick to put on, these bindings are perfect for plastic mountaineering boots that have a rigid sole and substantial heel and toe welts. The stainless steel safety strap, which was invented by Grivel, is permanently mounted on the front bale and prevents total loss of the crampon should it be forced off the boot.
Binding: New-Matic An evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic system which utilises the C-O-M rear bale and lever. The plastic harness system is hinged from two front posts which retain the boot securely even if it has a shallow, worn front welt or overboots are being used. It is a simple and efficient binding, being far more versatile than the original Cramp-O-Matic style. Made in dual-component plastic: the black part is stronger, bearing the strain whilst the yellow part is softer, increasing adherence to the boot. The harness is made from the strongest, most durable plastic available -Zytel DuPont, which was developed for the manufacture of alpine ski bindings. Obviously it cannot last forever, so please, after long and severe use replace the harness the same way you would resole trekking boots or rock climbing shoes.
