Upper limit of size - unsure about these ones...

They do seem well made however, when I tried them on they only just fit, and this was with the maximum size ajustment on the crampons, I really had to sqeeze my boots in - i'm only a UK size 8/9! I have small feet. Even though I can just about sqeeze in, there are still significant gaps between the tread of my boot and the inside of the crampon. I don't think they are good for my boots. Guys with bigger feet I wouldn't go near these!

Not compatible with size 45 boots

The crampons aren’t compatible with a size 45 boot. I don’t think would be compatible with anything more than a 41 if I’m honest. Very disappointing.

Largest sizes of boots

I have a large size of my boot, and crampons are end-to-end. Do you have a special adapters for large size?

Not durable

I have used these for one weekend on winter mountaineering and by looking at the them you would think they had a lifetime of usage. The points are worn and the plastic straps flimsy. Would not recommend.

Great kit for great value

Very impressed with the crampons, which I bought to lend to clients. They are great value, and seem very high quality.

měl jsem je zatím jen jednou a zatím spokojenost

možná by to chtělo malinko delší ten prostřední kovový pás z dírkami aspoň o jednu nebo dvě dírky navíc měl jsem to na poslední dírce a trošku byla obava jestli se to nerozpojí když je to úplně na konci

Prima Steigeisen

Hat mir gute Dienste geleistet bei einer Tour in der Brenta mit großen und steilen Schneefeldern. Dann auch gleich in einer Eishöhle probiert. War genial. Danke

Habe die Steigeisen auf einem Gletscher getragen der im Verlauf des Tages sehr aufweichte! Der Grip war durchwegs sehr gut, es gab keine Stollenbildung und ich konnte auch nicht feststellen, dass sich die Riemenbindung trotz längerem Marsches gelockert hätte! Die Steigeisen sehen noch aus wie neu, keine Spur von Rost oder Ähnlichem! Gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis!


Die besten Steigeisen der Welt!


Gutes Produkt zu gutem Preis!

Perfektes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

Auf einer Tour von Brèvent-Flégère (Nähe Mont Blanc) getragen. Top!

crampones caiman

quizás el precio un poco elevado para ser de uso esporádico, el agarre es bueno

Calidad/Precio excelente

No desmerecen nada contra otros de mayor presupuesto. Las correas van bien y no se aflojan. Por ese precio, poco más se puede pedir.
