Grivel says:

Ten points in contact with ice while you’re walking, 12 that bite into the slope during traverses. This has been made possible because the third pair of points are shorter and wider apart. On top of this the last two front points have a double angulation to maintain bite when descending or traversing sideways. The crampons points are short and designed for the new requirements of “mixed modern’s” alternating ice and rock. Sharp points are ideal for anchoring on ice “cauliflowers” and when in traction or adherence. Even the soles of the most modern boots are perfectly covered.

The Air Tech is a semi-rigid model in one adjustable size, the bar can be regulated by hand, in two different lengths and this new version has a new binding made in “bi-components” giving greater efficiency and lightness.

It is really an “all seasons” crampon, very light and takes up a minimum of space as it folds up completely on itself.

New Classic Binding

An evolution of the Classic binding. Both front and rear plastic harnesses are hinged from their respective retention posts and may be "opened" to facilitate attachment to the boot, then closed securely once the boot is inside. The single strap closure system is so simple we may not need to provide instructions; the New Classic is therefore ideal for rental programs and first time users. This system is simple and reliable, quick and easy, but it does take up a bit more space in the rucksack.

 

Range of use

  • Scottish Winter Mountaineering: Whether you’re bagging a Munro or two or having a walk up a snow capped Kinder Scout, this section of the terrain guide covers all activities that involve walking in snowy mountains to help you choose the best crampons and axe to maximise your performance.
  • Classic and Technical Alpinism: Involves a huge variety of different, conditions, angles and styles of climbing and because of this the choice of tools available in the Grivel collection is massive. You might need a very light axe for security on approaches to summer rock routes or you could need a pair of work horse tools for that dream north face route in winter whatever your requirements you will find the right tool for the job in this section.
