Grivel G12 New-Matic EVO Crampon
The G12 New-Matic EVO by GRIVEL is a classic 12-point crampon designed for general mountaineering, alpinism, mixed ice, rock climbing, and moderate waterfall routes
The four points that are perpendicular to the crampon rails, prevent shearing in soft snow and improve security while descending (facing outward). The crampons are fully adjustable by hand, without tools and one size fits all.
The G12 New-Matic EVO by GRIVEL is easily folded for transportation and delivered with Antibott.
The EVO bindings by GRIVEL are a significant improvement of the crampons that were previously on the market.The strap became much narrower, thinner and lighter. After putting on the crampon, it no longer needs to be knotted at the front. Instead of the two rings where the strap was previously pulled through to the front and then knotted, you now have a small buckle on the EVO models: The strap goes through thit buckle to the back of the crampon. Instead of knotting, it is then simply pulled through the intended opening on the lever at the back.
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.
Versatility in perfection: suitable for mountaineering, mixed routes, alpinism, rock climbing and moderate waterfall routes.
