Grivel Explorer Micro Crampons

Size: S

The Grivel Explorer Micro Crampons are lightweight packable spikes for walkers, trekkers and runners who encounter ice and snow on lower angled, non-technical terrain.

These types of crampons or spikes are very practical and are great for all types of users. From hill walkers at the change of seasons, where paths can be icy towards the summits, or climbers who will have ice and snow patches to cross before their route of choice. They are also great for regular walkers and runners on their footpaths near home.

The Explorer has 14 steel points with anti-corrosion treatment, these spikes are hardwearing, relatively short and therefore stable. The rubber webbing means the crampons can be worn over a range of footwear from running shoes to walking and mountain boots. The Explorer also features a back lace which allows for some adjustment to the fit.

The Grivel Explorer are a fine addition to the micro crampon market which has been gaining more and more popularity over the years. Perfect for slippery terrain such as snow, ice and even mud.


S: EU 35-38 | M: EU 39-41 | L: EU 42-44 | XL: EU 45-47

For mountain boots, we recommend sizing up two sizes from your footwear size i.e EU43 to a EU45 for a suitable fit.

      Grovel Explorer

      Used in Cairngorm ski touring, on Helvellyn on hard ice paths and in the Alps to get to decent paragliding takeoffs. Reassuring within their limitations, light enough to be permanently in my rucksack (in winter) and robust enough to have endured many miles of mixed snow, rock and ice paths.

      Grivel micro spikes

      These spikes work very well and the build quality is good. I found the sizing quite small for my boots though and ended up getting a size up to fit properly . Only down side for me is the carry bag they come in has some very flimsy mesh on one side which I imagine won't last long . All in all I highly recommend this item.
