Grivel Air Tech New Matic Crampon

11   |  

The Grivel Air Tech Crampon New Matic is an excellent modern crampon that neatly fills the gap between ‘walking’ crampons such as the G10, and climbing crampons such as the G12. The New Matic version of the Air Tech features a rear heel bail and plastic front basket, ideal for use with medium stiffness boots.

Although the Air Tech has 12 points they are relatively short, making it both lighter, and easier to walk in than the likes of the G12. The short points also provide a stable base on rock and make it popular for modern mixed (snowed up rock) climbing. The only real weakness is on steep ice, where vertically aligned front points, and longer secondary points (such as on the G14) are preferable. Apart from this the Air Tech is a great all-rounder that will be ideal for a wide range of uses.

* For small boots flip the extension bars over so that the protruding catch shortens the length of the bar.

    Light and strong

    Summer alpine use only but felt very secure and light. No issues with the point configuration. Used for reasonable distance on hard ice and performed well.

    Grivel air tech

    The Grivel air tech crampon is an excellent design except the upper size of 46 is an over exaggeration, I can't make these crampons fit any of my 45/46 boots particularly ski touring boots. So beware.

    Good price. Good crampons

    Good crampons. Easy to adjust and fit well on Scarpa Mantras. Used 3 times on rock ice and snow grade 1 with no issues. More than good enough for my needs.
