GRIVEL G12 NEW-MATIC CRAMPON
A classic 12-point crampon designed for general mountaineering, alpinism, mixed ice and rock climbing, and moderate waterfall routes. The Grivel G12 New-Matic features the New-Matic binding which is more versatile than a fully automatic binding.
The Grivel G12 New-Matic 12-point crampon is the most popular configuration of the popular G12 series of crampons. It is designed for general mountaineering, mixed ice and rock climbing, and moderate waterfall routes if you are travelling to places where these exist.
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. G12 is easily folded for transportation.
The G12 crampon is delivered with the Antibott included.
New Matic Binding
An evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic system which utilises the Cramp-O-Matic 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: DuPont Zytel, 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.
