KTS Aluminum - Flexible, Ultralight Crampon
Gain traction and save pack weight with our KTS Aluminum Crampons. With 7075 Aircraft Aluminum, their durability will give you added traction across a wide variety of icy and snowy terrain yet keep your pack (and feet) light as they weigh a mere 19 ounces per pair. These aluminum crampons won't be pack hogs, either - they fold down to a compact 3.5 x 3.5 x 8 inches, meaning you have plenty of room for freeze dried meals,camera gear and all the other things that make your days outside worthwhile.
KTS Steel - Flexible, Ultralight Crampon for More Rugged Conditions
Our Steel KTS Crampons are made of chromoly steel and boast points that are 1/4 inch longer than our aluminum model, meaning they'll take you through the most rugged of conditions. Rocky terrain and choppy ice won't be a problem with this tough alloySteel on your side. Still an ultralight crampon, our steel model weighs-in at a mere 23.3 ounces for the pair and folds down into a compact package to save pack space when they're not in use on the trail.

Review #1 (KTS Steel)
"My review might be a little biased as the Kahtoola KTS Steel is the only crampon Ive ever seriously used. However, I really dont see the need to use any other for anything but the most technical climbs. If for some reason you might think these crampons are not quite beefy enough for hardcore use, just consider that Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa set the former speed ascent (10 hours 56 minutes and 46 seconds) of Mt. Everest using a pair of Kahtoola KTS.I purchased my pair of Kahtoola KTS steel crampons before climbing Gannett Peak, WY. This was my first glacier climb, and admittedly was rather naive and made many silly mistakes. One mistake I didnt make was choosing the KTS. (To read full review visit this link Buzzillions)
